I worked at Alnylam full-time (More than a year)
Good location, good people and culture, generous benefits, fun events, food and beer provided for employees. Lots of growth with hiring and acquiring new space and factories.
Managements' faith and haste to grow allows the company to aim high but reality hit as one of the company's drugs were halted and that effected the stock and the future of the companies' stability. Pharma stocks have a high variance and Alnylam is not immune from that. Life/Work balance was an issue for some teams. Also, while new building is sleek, the cubicle structure is open floor and that is not for everybody.
Advice to Management
Keep employees informed as biotech can be a volatile industry, and make sure that life/work balanced is maintained.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alnylam (Cambridge, MA) in January 2017.
Phone interview with HR and then on site interview with hiring manager. The interview went well and people are easy to talk to but the job wasn't I expected.
