    Pros

    I was able to learn many new essential skills and implement them in my everyday work assignments. It was a great experience.

    Cons

    Senior management makes a lot of promises to their employees that they do not keep and it gets old very fast.

    Pros

    High compensations, collaborative environment while working cross functionally; exposure to many challenges that are ambiguous and require not standard approach; good culture and friendly people.

    Cons

    Autocratic, unstable management style; exaggerated sense of achievement; some departments work in "silos".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more attuned to market trends and the opinion of investors.

    I have been working at ARIAD Pharmaceuticals full-time for 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???
