    I worked at Amicus Therapeutics as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a newbie co-op, this was a great place to learn a wide variety of technical skills in addition to gaining exposure to a healthy small pharma culture. As a small, growing company, the enthusiasm was palpable and was invaluable for me as a developing researcher.

    Cons

    An understandable consequence of starting at the bottom of the food chain was a lack of understanding the development strategies trickling down from the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay hungry.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people to learn from
    Company was very health conscious, offered healthy foods for employees to eat
    Great work life balance

    Cons

    As with any small company, budget is always an issue.
    Would have been nice to be a full time employee instead of a contract employee

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    A great intro to small pharma research

    I worked at Amicus Therapeutics

    Pros

    Scientific 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.

    Cons

    Because 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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

    I worked at Amicus Therapeutics

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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.
