I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time

Pros

Great core of smart people especially the research group. Diverse pipeline.

Cons

Too much churn and politics. New leadership is micromanaging way too much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let smart people do their jobs.

    I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals

    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.
