    I have been working at Cubist Pharmaceuticals as a contractor

    Pros

    great people
    culture of learning
    nice perks like ice cream truck on mondays, masseuse, decent gym, an awesome new cafeteria potential to become a huge industry presence in the future
    pay is good
    great industry experience
    the buildings (and labs) were recently renovated and are gorgeous

    Cons

    as the title says, certain scientific/engineering entry level spots (including phD level) are only open to contractors. Many positions remain contract only (no health, education, 401k benefits) for years. There is no timeline for when the positions will become permanent, if ever. If there is a timeline they do not divulge this to contractors. This might make you feel like you have no real stake in the work you are doing, (aside from maybe professional development) and that in the long run your efforts will only benefit the permanent employees in your department.

    Advice to Management

    would be nice to give contractors a pathway to becoming permanent, or at least to explain what needs to change for their position to become permanent. Otherwise, great job! Fun place to work and develop.
