Conservative in new drug R&D fields, low successful rate in late stage development programs in the past few years, co-development of antiPDL1 Ab with Pfizer is a good sign of recovery from the past.

Don`t work in the warehouse
shipper 1 (Former Employee), Jaffrey NHJanuary 10, 2015
Pros: great benefits
Cons: poor communication, top heavy
More concerned about numbers than people, lack of any coherent direction from upper mgt, constantly changing priorities, mgt doesn`t follow the same rules as workers.

Not an AMERICAN owned company, privately owned, no oversight.

Talented minds working to make a difference!
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee), Billerica, MANovember 17, 2014
Pros: healthy work culture with lot of fun celebrations and friday happy hours
Cons: commute
I would start my day with discussing the plan of the day or sometimes week with my supervisor and getting to know the priorities of different experiments.
As this was my first adventure in industrial setting the overwhelming part at the starting was the volume or scale of the work which exponentially higher than the academic setting. But at the same time all my colleagues and supervisor helped me to understand and multitask and manage my time efficiently which made the job easy.
The most important part of working in this industry is the satisfaction that at the end I am going to be a small part of making patients life better.

Senior Sales Analyst /Sales Opeations Analyst (Former Employee), Rockland, MAJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: comp, benefits, no traffic (being outside of metro boston)
Cons: lack of new products, morale needs a jump start.
+ Very fast paced environment.
+ Team atmosphere, goal oriented, customer service oriented.
+ Comp was good, especially being outside of the city.
+ Systems were not cutting edge, but efforts were on-going to incrementally improve.
+ Reportedly, morale is suffering - largely due to uncertainty with the future.

Run don't walk away from this company if you aren't a scientist
Contractor (Former Employee), Billerica, MassachusettsNovember 13, 2013
Pros: well paid, weekly socials, scientists, collaboration
Cons: management style is to bully and make people afraid
If you plan on working inside the labs or as a scientist please do consider this company. Everyone in that sense of the work environment are very nice and wonderful to speak with and learn from.
However, the management style of some is down right unbelievable and unprofessional. You are not able to think on your own and are expected to be a robot. If you have ideas outside of the labs you are not allowed to do anything. You are micromanaged to the point where it borders on plain insulting. Also, if you ask for more work it is seen as a weakness due to trying to be better then other people.
It is overall a very unhealthy work enviornment for those who have higher aspirations.
It is a way they control their employees (who are fewer and fewer because they only believe in contractors). Perm positions are said to be very likely until you start and you realize you would never want to work as a perm employee.
They sell a very good game, but once you are in the true colors always come out. It would be a very interesting place to work for a human study.
If you choose to still apply best of luck and I hope you make it out unscathed.

Accelerated work environment always providing employees with tasks
Information Systems Co-op (Current Employee), Rockland, MASeptember 4, 2013
As a co-op student at EMD Serono, guidance from the business intelligence team in the form of helpful and structural teaching provided me with insights on how Agile and Waterfall managed projects get accomplished. I learned the process of retrieiving business user requirements and transforming them into functional and technical specification documents which included technical and use-case diagrams. Also, creating test cases at the conclusion of each project so that the development team and the end user can test each scenario for errors and bugs helped me understand how the team can interpret requirements from the user-customer and produce a finish product that is rolled out to the business and sales teams. Scrum meetings, management guidance, and personal help from each member of the team helped provide me with the understanding of how an Information System's team works in a fast-pace environment with multiple projects being worked on simultaneously.
