Pros

Vertex is an extremely unique organization with great people and a great deal of opportunity to learn and grow. The company and the people expect you to work hard at Vertex, but in my experience those that work hard here are recognized and rewarded.

Cons

Vertex is growing and still venturing in to unchartered territory which is both a source of exciement here as well as some frustration. At times the need to be nimble results in wasted efforts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's always room for better communcation and more transparency.

    I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    We are dedicated to solving important problems and have had great success doing it. The morale, compensation, and benefits are phenomenal. You feel supported in what you do.

    Cons

    The having been some growing pains associated with the company's expanded activities. With expansion, there is less of a small company feel ("you don't know everyone anymore")

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be less stressful if we had a very clear understanding of the rationale for organizational changes, otherwise, leadership should be congratulated on guiding the company to all its successes.
