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 Management

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

    Pros

    Hopefully it looks good on my resume

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen
    Recognition doesn't exist
    Forget about work-life balance
    That special kind of passive-aggressive politics

    Advice to Management

    FOCUS, listen to the people, and fix the ship. Do something when you know there's a problem rather than pretending it doesn't exist.
