Solid place to experience drug discovery as it is really done

Group Leader (Current Employee) Worcester, MA

ProsGreat colleagues, good resources, interesting projects. Good mix of biologics and small molecules.

ConsSlow and very cautious to develop drug candidates (i.e., many worthy candidates never progress to clinical trials). Management can be parochial, and seems at times not to understand how to truly nurture a worldwide company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    MDP Intern (Former Employee) North Chicago, IL

The internship program is great, but with the split, they don't seem sure on… Advice to Senior Management: Consistent messaging is needed to interns before, during and after… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
