What Makes Alkermes a Special Place to Work?

We are growing, have big plans and are adding new employees all across the organization. One of the questions we often get asked during interviews with candidates is, “What is the culture like here?” While we have always prided ourselves on having an inclusive, distinctive and positive culture, until recently we had never articulated what makes us unique. We decided to ask our employees—long-tenured and newly arrived—to describe our culture and values. What we heard was amazingly consistent. At Alkermes, all voices are heard and valued, and we demonstrate an unwavering commitment to and passion for our work. In addition, the single value that repeatedly rose to the top was teamwork. As we describe it, “collaboration is at our core.” It’s how we achieve our success and do our best work.

Below is an expression of our Purpose and our Values. Alkermes employees are united in our Purpose to pursue Great Science with Deep Compassion to make a Real Impact in the lives of the patients, families, and communities that we serve. Our Values — developed and articulated through an extensive process of employee feedback — outline how we work together to achieve our Purpose: through Collaboration with Respect for Each Voice and an Unwavering Commitment. If these shared principles are consistent with your own values and what you are looking for in your next role, check out our Jobs Overview page to learn more and to explore opportunities with us. We’re on a mission to make a difference, for each other and for the thousands of patients who benefit from our medicines.
