This company is no longer, it was acquired by Shire pharmaceuticals. Great place to work with genuine people before acquisition. Did not move on to Shire so no further comment.

Outstanding place to work and grow.

I was personally responsible for reviewing all the study applications and updates for which I designed a Microsoft Access database used to present to the review committee. From this specific project I observed what critical information, scientific and business related, was necessary for proper evaluation as well as the right questions to ask. I also gained valuable exposure to how ViroPharma handles their manufacturing and procurement despite the sites being overseas, what problems they encounter, and how a problematic situation is handled in a business setting. Most importantly, my internship experience gave me the hands-on experience and critical thinking skills needed to excel in the workplace.

Family culture, fun place to work and very rewarding

A typical day can vary. No two days are the same. I've learned that challenges will always come your way, but it's how you overcome them to meet the business need is what matters most. The management team is responsive, engaging, encouraging and supportive.The hardest part of my job is working daily with the challenges of the healthcare system. The most enjoyable part ob the job is helping patients.

Pros

on site gym, cafeteria, incentive programs, stock purchase plan

Cons

long distance from home.
