    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Ironwood Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)


    Very knowledgeable, intelligent and kind people, dynamic culture, sense of ownership is cultivated among employees, work/life balance. Heavy investment into R&D and pipeline. High integrity and transparency from the senior management, galvanized by CEO


    Entrepreneurial model is a little soft and risk-averse. Not aggressive enough on BD front. Hence - flat stock price for last couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs an agile, experienced and aggressive BD team

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Ironwood Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA) in April 2014.


    The Process took 4 months and required three rounds meeting twelve to fifteen people and a total 12 hours of interviewing plus the development of a 30-60-90-120 day plan before the 2nd round. There tend to be long gaps between each step. Lunch is provide but time to eat it is not given must interview with lunch.
