    I worked at Cubist Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic work environment and overall positive culture of working to discover, develop and bring to market new therapeutics for key unmet medical needs. Lots of opportunities to work with people with different backgrounds, experiences and expertise. Many good colleagues over the years, although a lot of the more experienced workers are being pushed out. Many nice perks, including ESPP, 401k matching, on-site fitness facility, exercise classes & free massages, summer ice cream truck, and monthly Friday celebrations.

    Cons

    Lots of new egos and plenty of management structure getting in the way of conducting high quality science. Decisions made by managers with limited experience and breadth of understanding. Too many silos from group to group and across different departments. Oftentimes conflicting and changing leadership positions and directions. Poor communication between research, clinical, business & development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions and rewards focus too much on higher visibility positions and higher level workers. Opportunities for formal training are often limited or non-existent.
