Company reviews
"Nice place before oncology unit sold"
Current EmployeeData Manager
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. "
Former EmployeeSenior Talent Acquisition Specialist
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"
Current EmployeeManager
Company looks very tech oriented but very outdated in terms of upgrade in the systems and applications in G&A. If you are in G&A function, think twice before joining as you may find yourself manually work to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"
Former EmployeeSenior Manager
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.
