I have been working at Alnylam full-time
Very patient focused. There is a certain culture there and you need to really click with everyone to do well there.
Growing too quickly and currently experiencing growing pains. They have taken away the full tuition reimbursement which is really a huge blow to the less senior employees.
Advice to Management
Keep giving employees animosity and room to grow.
The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Alnylam.
The interview process was very dragged out - about 3 months from initial phone screen to an on site interview. The interview panel was comprised of a series of one on one interviews with HR rep, hiring manager, and a few key cross functional team members. This was followed by what was supposed to be a panel of 3 which ended up being just one person and we had a difficult conversation due to language differences. In general, everyone seems to like working there but I got no level of rapport established with cross functional interview panel... almost seemed to go out of their way to make the conversation awkward which was off-putting from a candidate point of view. From the outside, it seems they push this wonderful culture to attract candidates but I have to wonder if it is reality on the inside based on this experience since I didn't get a good vibe from the majority of the individuals that I met.
