Two Faced
Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MANovember 1, 2018
Not enough work but blamed for not doing enough. A catch 22. My honesty did not help. Their dishonesty did not help. In spite of a friendly atmosphere there is a dark side.

Great place and mostly great people
Clinical Associate (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 15, 2018
I've enjoyed working here due to the work/life balance, onsite/remote working flexibility, great supervisors, etc. It is a growing company although the future is so uncertain with no drugs out in the market yet.
Pros
Free lunches, great benefits, great supervisors, fun events, a lot of flexibility
Cons
Unexpected lay offs, no drugs in the market yet, two bossy and mean ladies

Start-up company that has not yet figured out how to operate.
Sr. Medical Science Liaison, Oncology (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 13, 2018
No consideration given to the needed management of a field Medical Team of two that was responsible for covering the entire country. Partnership with sister-company which was totally lacking in trust and communication.

Improved management
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAApril 3, 2018
I joined Boston Biomedical Inc (BBI) during the last year of contracting period of BBI with DSP. So the first year of experience was always doing rutine work and frequentlly felt confusion. The second year we had more transparent research enviorment but soon the R&D was cut.

The company has a forward looking management team. I have thoroughly enjoyed working at Boston Biomedical, Inc. The opportunity to help find solutions to cancer is rewarding.

Good atmosphere but disorganized
Clinical Safety Associate (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJanuary 28, 2018
Company undergoing constant restructuring for over a year - sometimes getting information needed to do work was a chore. When things were running smoothly a great place to work, but there were two full months last year where the only thing that happened were meetings (often about why things weren't happening and how we needed to refocus).
Pros
Good people, good atmosphere and an important industry. Also frequent food.
Cons
At times chaotic and workloads were highly erratic, going from zero to 60 (hours of work needing to be done by quitting time) in the blink of an eye

It's not a well organized company
Assistant Investigator (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJanuary 23, 2018
I had worked in this company for more than 6 years. My salary was under-paid most of the time. Because company's culture is not very friendly, my productivity was suppressed.

Poor management, no leadership and terrible scientific brainstorm
Scientist (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAOctober 27, 2017
The working environment was not quite friendly when I was working down there, and there seemed to be a "gang" inside, releasing a lot of disturbing works, which significantly affected the whole scientific environment of R&D. In addition, the promotion appeared to take forever, even for some employee who has been working hard and accomplishing a lot. Two years later, CEO left after I moved onto next position.

It's a good start.
Research Scientist (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAFebruary 9, 2015
Although this company started about eight years ago, it is still undergoing plenty of growing pains that should have been worked out by now. Highly political, your chances of career development and promotion is dependent on who you work for and in which department and NOT on achievements or performance. No proper review process and unrealistic expectations. The lack of leadership/mentorship and lack of upper management communication hinders the progress of this company. Turnover rate is very high because employees are leaving all the time. The problem is not the pipeline products or research projects, it is how the company is generally run. Employee dissatisfaction is very common. It is a great place to start if you just need to gain industry experience. Not a long-term career company.
Pros
You can acquire industry experience here.
Cons
Bad life-work balance, compensation below industry standard, highly political, lack of leadership/mentorship, lack of organization, no real HR department, public shaming, lack of appreciation and respect for employees
