    Pros

    good benefits and perks, lots of fun events, great location in Cambridge, good work life balance

    Cons

    autocratic and very archaic style of management, very poor quality of research, senior management has been there for a long long time and are out of touch with current developments in oncology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You desperately need change, get rid of people who have been there for a long long time without any significant contributions. In fact they are retarding the progress of the company.

    I have been working at ARIAD Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was my first job out of graduate school. It was awesome to work with some great talent. The collaborations with universities for gene therapy applications were an interesting way of extending research outside of the laboratory. Parking and gym were included.

    Cons

    I wish I still lived in the Cambridge area. I would still work there today. I cannot recommend Ariad enough. Maybe I wish there were more projects to work on???
