    I have been working at PTC Therapeutics full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment. So much work to do that you will never get bored.

    Cons

    If too much food can be a con, that's the one thing I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep our pipeline strong and our culture too.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PTC Therapeutics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Upscale employee benefits like high class travel expense, free cell home plans(even for administrative, luxurious holiday parties; more vibrant and younger new employees, growth opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of people with high titles but under performing, spouse/family/close friend-oriented workforce, uneven distribution of work: capable people work their butts off while others idle around

    Advice to Management

    Award and promote the high performers; humbly take advice from people who are against you with the sharp points; performance manage people who can not come up to expectation rather than overworking only few. Monitor unreasonable spending and improve transparency.

    the picture of PTC shown in glassdoor reviews is very old shows former employees that haven been laid off or quit

    listen to employees, making big IT changes without good business decisions that impacts.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at PTC Therapeutics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -competitive compensation -Free food everywhere -Everyone is very friendly, great sense of community -Great benefits

    Cons

    -Some departments are very top heavy with a manager to analyst ratio of 1:1 -Work/life balance can be hard sometimes, certain times of the year you are expected to do more work then can be accomplished in a 9-5 work day -Some people get paid way too much for what they do, others seem to be always working from home. Lots of incompetent people with big titles who do not know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    - Find better ways to measure performance, the "people-goals" system is not a good measure for all roles. - Hiring someone with lots of experience does not mean they are fit for the job. - The Pharma revolving door is very real here. Hire more young people, we need fresh blood and new ideas.

  6. "So far, pretty great!"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at PTC Therapeutics

      Pros

      Culture, Pay, Benefits, Co-workers and a paid Christmas shutdown

      Cons

      PTO is fairly low, they try to make up in other areas, but in reality an entire week minimum should be added all around. And then have more tiers. Working seven years before your first and only increase is not good.
