    I have been working at Biogen Idec as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the other interns here. We get along very well along with the other people here. I have a lot of fun in the lab and I have my own project.

    Cons

    The days can sometimes be long and there is a lot of data collection at times so it can be slow. But the work is interesting and I learn a lot from it.

    Great corporate culture and benefits

    Because it's a large company, there's a bit of beauracracy, but it's not terrible.

    Pros

    The people! Who would have thought you would meet so many great people working in an analytics lab. I really loved going to work everyday due to the positive atmosphere at this company.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons. I suppose the layoffs are a con but otherwise working at Biogen Ides was pretty great. They treated us well.

    I worked at Biogen Idec

    Pros

    Biogen Idec is currently on the rise with product development, so the work is ample and exciting. Good products also bring a positive atmosphere to the company and the workers there. You also have a sense at the company that the executives care not only about the profit but also the employees and the well-being of the employees and their families.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

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

    Pros

    Generous salary, stock options and benefits. The company has also had a recent rollout of flex work options – employees can work from home up to 3 days per week if they want. The work itself is overall fulfilling; although I am on the operations side of the business, I do feel at the end of the day the work I am doing is benefiting someone’s life and their health. I feel the senior management communicates well with employees and find our CEO and executive leadership to be humble and a ‘all hands on deck’ attitude. They truly seem to value each employee’s contributions.

    Cons

    Workload can be a lot at times, however the company recognizes hard work and collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the good work. I don’t know how I will ever want to leave the company!
