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

Pros

Lots of opportunities to grow
Great culture with amazing people to work with
Interesting work with great work-life balance

Cons

Lot of commuting between buildings which should be fixed by our move to Fan Pier
Tendency in recent years to rely on temps instead of making people full-time (temps remain for +1-2 years in some cases)
Budgets a bit tighter this year

Advice to Management

Retain staff better so that there is less turn-over and uncertainty replacing staff for projects
Make more money available to recruit key staff
