Featured Review

Current Employee - Program Director

I have been working at Amgen full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The exceptional professionalism, integrity and highly collaborative hiring staff. As a former Amgen employee, I knew I would receive professional hiring staff and I definitely was treated with high... quality professionalism and the Amgen Talent Acquisition Team went above and beyond to support me through the re-hiring process. I'm thrilled to be an Amgen employee again!

Cons

I don't have any cons. I have been in the industry for 22 years and Amgen is indeed exceptional.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great corporate culture, amazing benefits with energetic and positive employees all focused on bettering the lives of patients.

Cons

The commute leaving the city can sometimes be annoying, but that’s to be expected leaving the Seaport district.
