Pros

Strong scientific rigor, very dynamic environment, compelling new technology, good fiscal management, heavily matrixed organization that demands good team play and collaboration

Cons

ALNY is aggressively seeking clinical POC for the RNAi therapeutic platform. The intense race toward clinical results often means that research around better understanding the fundamentals of the technology are deprioritized. Target selection also feels rushed and premature at times.

Advice to Management

Don't overlook mechanistic research around targets and delivery systems as this provides a strong foundation for problem solving later in clinical development.

    I worked at Alnylam full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    really great science, a lot of good people working there and despite some typical for the industry stumbles they have built quite an impressive track record. Some of the micro-cultures are really great

    Cons

    the place is pretty vertically organized for a company of that size, like all public companies there is a high degree of confidentiality around some issues and some of the micro-cultures are really cut throat

    Advice to Management

    The bell curve for merit increases can do more harm that good a hyper competitive environment is not helpful or innovation or morale.
