I worked at Biogen Idec

Pros

Great benefits - health care, time off, 401K. Salary fairly competitive.

Cons

Poor leadership. Directors do not inform employees often enough regarding project goals/timelines. Promotions are rarely given to non PhD positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff, inform them, and keep them up-to-date regarding company issues, projects. Be honest with them. Let them know the quality of the job they are doing. Don't let them be surprised, let them know when they are doing a great job.

    I worked at Biogen Idec

    Pros

    Smart people. Good compensation. Great products. Reputable company.

    Cons

    On the sales side, things are moving in the wrong direction. Lost the value in having people around that have a historical reference. New regime, new people; not necessarily what is needed. The existence of cliques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not become big pharma.

    Biogen Idec is a great company to be a part of and any internship opportunity is well worth the time.

    I have been working at Biogen Idec

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Excellent culture. Caring employees.

    Cons

    As an intern I was a part of a management change. This change could have been smoother, though I understand it is tough for management and employees to adjust to change.
