    Pros

    The basic research area produces some really exciting science
    The pipeline of products is rich and has great potential
    There are plenty of excellent colleagues
    The perks are good
    Vertex makes life-changing therapies for patients

    Cons

    The company is very isolated from many current standard industry practices
    Communication is poor within teams and departments; employees have trouble understanding how to meet company needs
    There is little respect for experience and knowledge; many very basic mistakes occur as a result
    Lack of direction and focus; a company mission is very hard to identify
    People are treated as though they are disposable
    There is a chaotic work environment with much sudden quitting and firing of senior people which makes others understandably nervous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a unified mission and pursue it unhesitatingly. Trust your decisions and your abilities.
