    I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Research culture is driven towards incorporating the most advanced academic research into industrial use, where it can reach consumers. Innovation and research seemed to be a real focus and a foundation of the company. They seemed ready to fulfill the needs of science no matter who proposed the need.

    Cons

    Interactions with other interns can be difficult depending on where you are placed. Because everyone in Boston/Cambridge area moved into one building, this may no longer be a problem. Undergraduate interns would have hard time translating internship to a full-time position in R&D, but that's not unusual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not many people are naturally good at managing, and for many scientists, it may be even more difficult. I thoroughly enjoyed working with my mentors, but it might be good to help scientists become better managers too to some extent.
