    I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice workspace and coworkers.

    Cons

    People seem to advance based more upon "who" they know, rather than "what" they know. There is a lot of micromanaging which seems to be a waste of time. Too many meetings and not enough execution. No clear levels of communication between departments so the same work is often repeated by various groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline your systems. Stop allowing departments to "tweak" programs for their own needs which later don't correspond to other department needs. Improve and foster open communication between departments. Promote based on work output, not popularity.
