    I have been working at ARIAD Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was my first job out of graduate school. It was awesome to work with some great talent. The collaborations with universities for gene therapy applications were an interesting way of extending research outside of the laboratory. Parking and gym were included.

    Cons

    I wish I still lived in the Cambridge area. I would still work there today. I cannot recommend Ariad enough. Maybe I wish there were more projects to work on???

    Pros

    Flexible environment and growth potential.. Being a small company, your effort gets noticed, recognized and appreciated in a quick manner.

    Totally transformed from the old management to New management ...lives and breathes in the new culture and DNA...management takes ownership, make it happen and feel for patients....

    Cons

    There is more work but managers give a helping hand at all times. Need to continue to work on process enhancements.
