    Pros

    The employees had a lot of relative PTC experience as they all come through their "PTC University".

    Cons

    The employees have no real world experience outside of PTC and so have no real view on how to adjust to various situations. Employees get promoted within and not for talent but longevity. It reminds me of a cult..

    Advice to Management

    You higher people based on their industry expertise but you don't listen to them..be prepared to hear the hard facts and what it will take to change be prepared to change!

    I worked at PTC Therapeutics as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people were honestly some of the most friendly, helpful, intelligent people I have met. There's always a lot of free food up for grabs, which is a huge plus. Also, unlimited free coffee which I would have died without. Other than the free things, the people were by far just so amazing there. As an intern, they really just wanted me to succeed and learn as much as I can in my short time there. Stu, the CEO, was amazing and really wanted to get to know what I was thinking whenever I would sit in on meetings, which I think is pretty rare. The people here honestly became like family.

    Cons

    AC was a little chilly and the building is not the prettiest, but honestly who cares?

    I worked at PTC Therapeutics as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They treat everyone with respect and when it comes to company events, they don't differentiate between contractors and full-time employees. Also, the leadership was always open to suggestions/changes when it came to my job and gave me a lot of latitude to define the role.

    Cons

    I can't think of any...I guess that I am unable to work there anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    NONE ... There really iisn't anything that is that great to mentilon and there really aren't any company perks.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY LONG HOURS ! Employees are overworked and management thinks nothing of getting rid of employees and makes up reasons to get rid of people.

    Advice to Management

    EVER THINK OF WORK/LIFE BALANCE???

    I have been working at PTC Therapeutics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros:
    Flexible with hours.

    Good amount of vacation.

    Knowledgeable scientists in the area of RNA.

    Cons

    Cons:
    The upper management seems to continue to push PTC-124 through clinical trials. Although it has failed multiple times, it appears management is too emotionally involved to know when to invest resources in something something more promising. This may eventually cause some problems with the survivability of the company.

    The level of nepotism in this company is more than I have experienced in any other work experience.

    We went multiple years without a pay increase.

    Pros

    Very exciting day to day and a good work life balance. The usual longer hours at quarter and year end but never crazy. Really nice social office atmostphere here in Dublin.

    Cons

    The industry is unstable and at any stage the drug agentancy could pull the plug. However approval is all but assured for now and there are other opportunities for the company coming down the pipeline.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Keep the lights on and the money flowing!! Don't forget about us minions!!

    I worked at PTC Therapeutics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great science, flexibility, advancement opportunities and family atmosphere. Location is excellent, close to major transportation.

    Cons

    Company is downsizing and may not be around in the future. Relies too much on external funding and when it dried up, the money has run out.
