    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It used to have a great culture. A lot of great restaurants around the new world headquarters that was built in Boston.

    Cons

    A lack of cohesiveness and interaction between groups creates failed opportunities. Beweare middle managers that will stab you in the back in order to advance their careers. Multiple layoffs have all been at the staff level; management has hardly been affected.

    Expect to work a lot of extra hours for no recognition.

    I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were good as was the pay. There was a bonus every year and getting stock is a bonus.

    Cons

    Work life balance is tough, promotions are hard to come by. They seem to lay off a lot

    Advice to Management

    Start looking internally and less externally remember your employees are the most important asset to the business so treat them that way.
