Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Data driven. Results oriented. Technical challenges abound. Input is valued.

Cons

More QA than one would expect.

Advice to Management

Stay aggressive with development programs. Keep a handle on the Quality Systems, but watch for trival wasted efforts that don't add value.

    I worked at Alkermes full-time

    Pros

    - Decent pay & good benefits package
    - Location was great; at the center of the biotech scene in MA
    - Hired a lot of young people, which made the workplace fun and exciting even though the work wasn't

    Cons

    - Too clicky and senior managers seemed to play favorites
    - A lot of politics
    - Wish I learned more of the science behind things; live and die by SOP's
    - Silo'd at times; tough to do things outside-the-box (unless you were one of the favorites)

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great workplace, very supportive of family and life balancing. Solid benefits and competitive salary. Friendly people. Small pharmaceutical culture/atmosphere

    Cons

    The merger with Elan is taking time to balance the corporate cultures. Turnover trends low which can limit opportunity as growth is slow.
