I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Depth of pipeline in development; commitment to developing only drugs that are life-changing for patients; location; company commitment to remain innovative within the confines of GXP, despite growth or corporate size.

Cons

We work long, hard hours, but what biophama company doesn't? The company does actively promote that employees maintain a work-life balance. A more formal WFH policy would be great to have most due to such at our competitors.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vertex @ SD served free breakfast and held community gatherings. Held numerous promotions for CF in the surrounding community.

    Cons

    A great degree of bureaucracy. People mind their own business and the scientists appeared more pessimistic than usual.

    Advice to Management

    Allow students to diversify their exposure to big Pharma, even if they are interning inside a particular cell culture lab in the electrophysiology department (i.e. Expose them to process and development, HTS, etc.) Diversification is important for students (especially the interns!).

    Pros

    Working on great products, dedicated to solving important problems, and follow innovative approaches to treat dreadful diseases. It is a great organization with wonderful people and opportunities for upward growth

    Cons

    Facilities and offices were quite apart from one another so a little bit of travel distance when walking from one building to the other

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the good work
