    I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good. Paid time off is good. Work From Home is great if you ever get the opportunity.

    Cons

    They micro manage you in every sense of the term. It's almost like you're in school. Feel under appreciated by upper management. They have no clue what we do. You can complain & voice your concerns but it falls on deaf ears. & sometimes it may even lead to you gettinf fired if you go against the norm. & it's clear they simply don't care.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN. not just hear the employees.... LISTEN. & take action on the things that are reasonable. Show appreciate for what the employees do. & keep the lines of communication as clear as possible.

    I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing people, everyone is very hard working and smart. I have always been encouraged to speak to both upper level management and to those at my level if i have an issue or question. People are very open to answering questions and you are able to learn much in a very short amount of time.

    Cons

    There is a high volume workload and you should be organized. Managers want you to be upfront and honest about how much work you can handel, so be aware of this.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more open with the entire group about what has to get done and the timelines for the work so that eveyone is more aware of the overall goals.

    Pros

    Biogen is enjoying great success and grew very rapidly, especially in 2014. The company is full of energy and enthusiasm about potential benefits to patients in multiple disease areas. Benefits and work life balance are great. CEO has higher-than-average integrity and openness.

    Cons

    The company is rebuilding after a down phase in the latter 2000's. Most functions have more demand than capability.
