    I have been working at Alkermes

    Pros

    Beautiful work environment, great co-workers, and excellent benefits.

    Just a little more chance for advancement and pay raises for younger workers who deserve it.

All parties involved are easy to communicate with and are eager and energized to meet new people and select candidates for the work Alkermes has to complete.
