I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals

Pros

Highly motivated energetic workforce made Vertex a lot of fun to work. Everyone seemed very passionate about what they do, which keeps everyone engaged.

Cons

Upper management had difficultly communicating vision and often rely on external expertise from consultants or new hires vs. hiring/promoting from within the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a clear vision for your group. Get input from your direct report vs. relying on external expertise.
