Not necessarily, Vertex has a strong pipeline and strong partners w/AZ being one of them

I’m not familiar with Vertex but AZ is an excellent employer and has fantastic work ethic! Massive organization so obviously the pros and cons of that! But can recommend

like

AZ has a much wider portfolio. Probably a huge opportunity to contribute on a wide array of programs. Vertex is an outstanding company and their cell and gene therapy division has some really exciting programs (especially with diabetes cell therapy and their crispr therapeutics collaboration). I’ve heard they make very nice annual stock offerings at the higher levels too. My choice would be Vertex based on positive employee reviews I’ve heard from friends there. I don’t know enough about AZ company culture to make a comment there, but vertex seems to be very good. Best of luck to you - exciting opportunities!

I feel like I’m getting left behind at work. This girl who is my age started on the same day as me & in the same position. She seems to be doing more work and working on cooler projects than me. She’s in the office and I’m wfh bc I live w a divorced sick parent and I just generally feel insecure and that she’s getting noticed more by our boss/team.
