    I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with, very open to fresh ideas no matter how new you are. Great benefits and events that keep the workplace fun (beer hour, special activities for holidays, etc.) and amazing benefits for full time employees (commuter benefits, tuition reimbursement, vacation time)

    Cons

    If you're a temporary employee, good luck getting converted. Your colleagues will treat you fine but the company excludes you from pretty much everything, no benefits through the temp agency, and you'l be strung along in terms of getting converted to a full time role.

    I have been working at Vertex Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Beautiful buildings in a great area. Great benefits and RSU payout

    Cons

    Believe everything you’ve read in prior reviews. Company culture is not what they want you to believe. Bullying and harassment at high levels is tolerated. Micromanagement at high levels is the norm. All that experience you came to the company with will not be valued.

    Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Please reach out to your manager or HR if you feel you are being bullied. That is not the culture we want at Vertex and we will make sure it is corrected.

    I worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company culture and company wide start up training on job. Great benefits packages.

    Cons

    Management will use administrative staff as personal secretary. Will make you believe your position will go somewhere and that you're making good money, but it's not worth the degrading work you have to do to get there (at least with the head of clinical trials management). Duties were far from what was anticipated after interview. Duties will include bringing blanket to manager when cold in meetings, cleaning up meeting messes, answering to children of manager's non-work-related phone calls, and being overall degraded by manager. From what I have heard, other departments are great to work with, however, if you don't want to be humiliated as a human, DO NOT work for this department.
