Senior Sales Director East Area (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – October 18, 2016
I had the good fortune of working at Cubist for 13 years and watching it grow in leaps and bounds. Great people and a great leadership team made Cubist an outstanding place to work. Cubist was acquired by Merck in 2016.
Four plus years of excellent environment. Leaving upon hostile acquisition.

Associate (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – November 6, 2014
Mostly a good place to work, a few bad eggs across departments are creating an inefficient work place. In my past scenario many people worked hard while others were allowed to relax. Limited room for growth because of a top heavy management mentality.
Lack of communication across departments, duplication of work, inefficient
