    "Dynamic fast-paced environment, aggressively prosecuting a novel therapeutic technology"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Strong scientific rigor, very dynamic environment, compelling new technology, good fiscal management, heavily matrixed organization that demands good team play and collaboration

    Cons

    ALNY is aggressively seeking clinical POC for the RNAi therapeutic platform. The intense race toward clinical results often means that research around better understanding the fundamentals of the technology are deprioritized. Target selection also feels rushed and premature at times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook mechanistic research around targets and delivery systems as this provides a strong foundation for problem solving later in clinical development.

    I worked at Alnylam full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
