    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Vertex Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    I received an email to schedule a phone interview by the hiring manager (PI) very quickly after applying for the position. The phone interview was prompt, informal, and took about 30 mins. The PI is very nice, extremely laid back and enjoyable to talk to. Then I was scheduled for an onsite interview and met with 3 people for about 3 hours total including a 45 mins presentation. Everyone I talked to include the VP are extremely nice, intelligent, and friendly people. Then followed by an enjoyable lunch.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Vertex Pharmaceuticals in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was low key, probably due to the size of the site. People were curious and personable, most were a pleasure to talk with. The site had a good "vibe" and people seemed to enjoy working there. Communication after the interview has been severely lacking, despite offers to answer questions regarding the position/company.
