    I have been working at Alnylam

    Pros

    Strong scientific rigor, very dynamic environment, compelling new technology, good fiscal management, heavily matrixed organization that demands good team play and collaboration

    Cons

    ALNY is aggressively seeking clinical POC for the RNAi therapeutic platform. The intense race toward clinical results often means that research around better understanding the fundamentals of the technology are deprioritized. Target selection also feels rushed and premature at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook mechanistic research around targets and delivery systems as this provides a strong foundation for problem solving later in clinical development.
