This place is the worst place to work
Validation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAApril 21, 2016
I was hired for two months to qualify their computer system. As a consultant when I started doing my job I was asked to shut up and do what they wanted. They treat you like an animal.

Good place for cancer research
Intern (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAMarch 3, 2016
Great environment to work on novel approaches towards fighting cancer. Attempting to bridge the gap between engineering and biology in cancer research. Still relatively new on the scene. Good because relationships and interactions between employees can be more personal. Bad because lack of clearly defined research direction, but getting there.
Pros
Small, friendly, engaging

Productive and fun work place
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 12, 2014
The company culture at Merrimack is different from anything I have ever experienced. Everyone who works here is truly genuine and passionate about their jobs. It is a very welcoming company and you do not feel like the new employee for very long. The managers and senior leaders are very approachable, easy to talk to, and understanding. The work life balance is incredible, and they understand that yes work has to be done, but your life and family are more important. The only con comes from it being a small and growing company who is still establishing its place in the pharmaceutical world, which makes difficult for temps/contracts who wish to become permanent employees to do so.

Nice place to work if no need for structure
Clinical Trial Associate (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MANovember 8, 2013
This is a nice place to work at, with nice people and a lot of flexibility to allow very good life/work balance.
However, the company lacks the structure necessary for such a riche pipeline.
Pros

Cons
lack structure and long-term vision
