Good place to work overall
Director (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MAAugust 8, 2017
The company was going through a major growth when I left. The old company was a great place to work. The company that Alkermes has become is not as great. The culture was lost as the company grew.

Love it here!
Manager Patient Access - HUB Vendor Operations (Current Employee) –  Waltham, MAMay 23, 2017
The pace is very fast due to how lean the company runs, but I really enjoy all the people here. Processes and procedures are a bit outdated, but management is willing to change them. Growing very fast, which is a huge challenge, but has been very rewarding as well.
