    Senior Pharmacovigilance Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ARIAD Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    It was a standard process. I started with a phone interview with the director of the group. That led to a second, face-to-face interview with a group of colleagues in the Cambridge office. The VP of the group was not able to meet with me, but called me later that evening.

    A minor criticism was with the long length of time it took from the interview, to being given an offer. The interview was in late December, before the holidays, and their office was closed during the last week in December (between Christmas and New Years). My offer was not given until after 2 weeks in January.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ARIAD Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty standard. 5 hrs, with a lunch break/interview. Met the team, and adjoining department's team. Everyone seemed a little over worked but I still knew the company has a reputation for recognizing hard work in the form of quick promos.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ARIAD Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    They are extremely efficient. I sent a resume and received an email inquiry within a few days and then had a phone screen with HR and then the hiring manager, then an in-person interview with colleagues all within a very few working days. They were all intelligent, well-prepared and very pleasant.

    The most difficult aspect of the process was the expectation that after a 1-hour phone screen and several interviews I would still have enough questions to drive additional interviews. Every interviewer was very insistent on making sure we started with my questions (of which there were few after a lengthy phone screen and the first couple of interviews). They did not leave time to ask me anything, which almost felt like they were not really interested in learning what I had to offer. They also had difficulty answering questions about their expectations, which was not their fault as the job role was somewhat fluid, but it did make the job of asking questions somewhat harder.
