    My colleagues in the Discovery & Non Clinical Development group were nothing short of stellar. I was very impressed with the caliber of medicinal chemists that I interacted with on a daily basis. Great benefits and really cool science. Too bad Big Pharma gobbled up the clinical assets and disassembled the scientific team.


    None that I can think of at the moment

    Advice to Management

    There is no one left from the previous regime, they're all Merck folks now.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cubist Pharmaceuticals.


    Run of the mill...Online application followed by phone screening. Spoke to two hiring managers regarding the position. Asked basic questions about my research as well as some probing questions to gauge my critical thinking skills. At the end of the day it was not the right fit for my skill set. Everyone was friendly and professional.
