    It's hard to work with upper management and they over work the employees so people are stressed and on edge a lot.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and what keeps people working there for a long time. The company also has a great goal on improving lives for people with the diseases they work on.

    Cons

    It is hard to work with the upper management. The work load given is way too much and long hours are a must to stay I top of the work load. Hard to have any life outside of work.

    Pros

    Great benefits and long-term incentives. Easy access to a variety of online training courses. Free breakfast and snacks. Nice people.

    Cons

    Awful micromanagement throughout the organization. It’s very hard to get promotions or other opportunities unless you are in the “special group”. Inflexible about remote work, which is going to be their undoing. Vertex does NOT pay market rate for the pharma industry and they overwork everyone. WFH was the one way we had some balance, but now we must come in 3 days per week. All the recent AMAZING reviews are either the HR team in overdrive or people in the “special group”. Don’t be fooled.

Culture
For decades, Vertex has worked to create transformative medicines for people with serious diseases. We’ve collaborated around whiteboards, in labs and in manufacturing centers. We’ve innovated during hallway conversations and on video conferences across time zones. And, yes, during these past few years, COVID-19 changed a lot of that! But Vertexians all around the globe relied on what made us successful in the past, while we learned new ways of working to go forward. This included being more flexible about when, where and how we work – a new way of working that we now call Flex @ Vertex. Learn about Vertex’s flexible work program, which emphasizes flexibility for all to meet the needs of their personal and professional lives while enabling teams to thrive so we can deliver on our promise to patients.
