Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Cambridge, MA

I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Great location
Interesting and really rewarding work
Free parking
If you are a full time employee great benefits

Cons

Extremely competitive environment
Politics is king
If you are a temp you will be treated as such. You are not allowed at the social events (unless invited by FTE)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Broaden your horizons. You talk the 'fearless innovation' talk but when it comes to application you fail to be anything but typical. You know the saying you can tell who a man really is by how he treats the waiter? Well the same goes for a company on how they treat their contractors, and Vertex fails in this department.
