    I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time


    The company is profitable, generally well run, with competent management at all levels. It has a clear corporate vision, and hires people that are excellent at their jobs. The company also has considerable focus on the patients who rely on it's products and expends a lot of effort in initiatives to promote their welfare outside of drug development. Vacation time is very generous, and other benefits are excellent.


    The company has adopted an open office space plan which means that there are no offices or cubicles - just large areas filled with desks and spindled with couches and "huddle" rooms. Everything about that is annoying and productivity sucking. HR talks a lot about focusing on career and personal development, but, in practice, there's rarely opportunities for that or advancement within the company. There are even job levels that can only be obtained by quitting and being hired back at a later date. There are MANY people that have worked at the company for a decade or more with lots of personal recognition, but no promotion. They pay well, but it's not a place to advance your career.

    Positive Outlook
