Featured Review

Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I have been working at Amgen for more than a year

Pros

Working for common goal Cross-funtional working

Cons

Not great potential for moving up hierarchy

Current Employee - Administrative Assistant

I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Pay, Benefits, Culture, and time off are all outstanding. Company is constantly doing surveys to see how they could improve life for their employees. They are generous and appreciate hard work.... Everyone is passionate and driven. I've had 5 different managers since I started here and they've all been amazing. I love everyone I work with and I couldn't be happier. I feel blessed to be working here.

Cons

I agree with some that HR often searches outside the company for new hires instead of hiring from within. But, they've recently stated that they are going to be offering more trainings to current... employees so they can hire and promote from within whenever possible. I believe they will do that.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!
