I worked at Biogen Idec as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Great facilities. Interesting research problems. Coffee machines everywhere, and great cafeteria downstairs. Affordable, well-stocked gym across the street. Bike parking cage in the main parking garage.

Cons

As a recent college graduate, I found myself surrounded by individuals typically older than myself. All friendly people, but I didn't have much to add to conversations about mortgages or elementary schools in the suburbs.
