    It was very educational.

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Cranbury, NJ

    ProsIt is very easy to ask questions and learn. Employees are very nice and willing to go out of their way to teach newcomers the reigns.

    ConsIt is a small company, so it could be a bit difficult to try to see what to do next.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management at Amicus Therapeutics have been very competent and professional with interns and employees. It is very comfortable to work with them.

    Great experience- learn by fumbling. Management totally incompetent

    Clinical Operations (Current Employee)
    Cranbury, NJ

    ProsTeam work & support among the lower level employees

    ConsWatch your back. Too much politics. Self-interest rules the day

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay close attention to your worker bees!

    A great intro to small pharma research

    Co-Op (Former Employee)
    Cranbury, NJ

    ProsScientific management is very knowledgeable and willing to give more responsibility to student interns than many other companies, once the intern has proven him or herself. This results in increasing opportunities to learn about research at the industrial level, and provides students with a very different perspective than that gained from experience in an academic lab.

    ConsBecause they are a small, non-revenue generating operation, the hourly wage for internships is not as high as larger, more established, and more profitable companies, however as a student intern the opportunity to do research is worth accepting a slightly lower wage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the internship program going!! and hire more of your interns from Rutgers, they do better work than their counterparts from Drexel :)

    It is an open atmosphere with a small pharma vibe. Many cross-functional opportunities and less emphasis on titles

    Clinical Operations (Former Employee)
    Cranbury, NJ

    Pros-small pharma atmosphere
    -cross functional projects
    -knowledge of the entire life cycle of a project
    -great management in most departments
    -friendly, caring people

    Cons-do not post internally or externally for new positions (recruiter only)
    -not well defined career ladder and hard to move up (especially because it is a small company, so does not have that many positions as a whole)
    -rather hire externally than promote their own (in some departments)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Fantastic opportunity, great people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat environment in which to work. Everyone is welcoming and friendly. People from the management team are easily accessible and open.

    ConsThe only con I would put would be that the location of the company is not exactly hopping, although there are other offices around and some restaurants for lunches.
