Nice place before oncology unit sold

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Since the oncology unit was sold, there has been lack of room for people to grow. They did care about people and organized some activities to cheer people up but just in general you won’t like it when the size of the company shrinks.

Excellent culture and team members.

I love this company. Their culture is awesome! I loved working with everyone, especially our HR /TA team. What a wonderful group of people! I can't say enough good things about the woman I reported to! She was personable, welcoming, helpful, smart, great at her job, fun and wonderful at managing and developing her team members. I will always have fond memories of my time at Agios.

Good for R&D but not for G&A

Company looks very tech oriented but very outdated in terms of upgrade in the systems and applications in G&A. If you are in G&A function, think twice before joining as you may find yourself manually work to save the marginal budget of a department. G&A workforce is very lean with high turnover.

Fun place to work

Great place to work, the company is growing, but culture remains the same which is hard for any company to keep....but they are doing it :) Agios has a great crossfuctional learning experience with the ability to wear more then one hat.

Productive and Fun workplace

The workplace environment at Agios is unlike any I have ever experienced. Everyone is friendly and approachable, and there is a good balance of work and fun. They are incredibly flexible and sensitive to the needs of their employees, especially with hours, time off, etc. I would highly recommend working here to anyone!

great place to work

Agios pharmaceuticals is great place to work. Lead by a patient focused CEO and scientist. I was able to learn cross functionally how a drug is gets from an idea to patients.

Random Management Strategy

Day to day operations are fine, but vision and strategy are inconsistent. No career ladder, career path and limited mentor-ship opportunities. You're on your own.

Small company feel, great culture

Great culture, opportunity to do meaningful work and contribute to helping people. Specialize in oncology (immuno-oncology) and rare genetic disease therapies.

Agios lives by its motto. "The other side of possible". Agios is a productive company that focuses on culture and work/life balance for their employees.

Growing Biotech

A very hard-working group- to be successful here you need to be willing to work hard, but the company culture is amazing and makes it worth it.

Very educational place to work

Every day seemed to be different. I was spread between many different departments and was able to learn a lot. I was primarily in charge of the animal facility and glass wash. I quickly learned shipping and receiving, basic facilities duties, and also started to help out the scientists. I learned many different things from growing and splitting cells to facilities tasks.


learned a wide spread of information


only a contract position
