Current Employee - QA Associate I in Research Triangle Park, NC

I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Salary was great, benefits were awesome, most of the employees were very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy sharing what they knew,

Cons

some micro managing, not by all, but those who seemed to have something to prove
no management training program (if there was one, some managers needed constant refreshers)
limited promotional path

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, stop promoting because of who you know, management training program (not everyone is qualified to "lead" others)
