    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most people at the SD are good coworkers. There are some bad apples but thats how it is everywhere. Benefits are really good. Breakfast every day, cookies on Wednesday, and happy hour on Friday.

    Cons

    Getting promoted can be difficult at times, managers can have favorites, and not all groups treated evenly. People can be overworked here

    Advice to Management

    Listen to middle management more. If someone says they're direct report should get promoted, then they should.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals for more than a year

    Pros

    High level science; flexible hours; respect to all level employees; you can feel free to talk to your direct manager and higher level boss; competitive salary.

    Cons

    It is almost impossible to switch from temporary position to permanent; company don't appreciate experienced and hard working employees, one day they just can to lay you off because of new policy.
