    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.

    Pros

    In research the atmosphere is generally good and most of your colleagues are great people aside from the few outliers. Overall experience will definitely depend on your manager/supervisor and how they feel you should progress.

    Cons

    Corporate decisions are tough and people can be let go without notice or sites closed. It sucks, even if it logistically makes sense.
