Great place, the best research, mgmt trying hard to make the environment & culture attractive to long trerm employees. Phenmoenal growth ... until the decision to take the offer of an acquirer. Company is already a shell of it's formaer self and top staff heading out. Poor decison by the BOD and a shame.

Management Needs Work
Associate (Former Employee), Lexington, MANovember 6, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: lack of communication across departments, duplication of work, inefficient
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.

Cubist Pharmaceuticals is a company with great vision of tomorrow's pharma
Senior Specialist, Quality Systems (Current Employee), Lexington, MAJuly 25, 2013
Pros: excellent compensation packages and car wash on site
Cons: cafe portions are small (lol) for people who don't count calories!
Cubist Pharmaceuticals is a great company that values their employees which leads to great collaboration between peers, groups, departments and management.

I've learned (through trial and error) how to successfully mitigate redundances while remaining compliant with the agencies regulations and the industry's expectations. One of the hardest thing is being a virtual company which has manufacturers world wide which makes real-time collaboration challenging.
