Pros

Great Benefits, on site parking, core of people that have been with the company for a long time, lot of knowledge, great leadership in senior management, lots of focus on employee development, internal candidates are always considered for postions first, different sites work together on things

Cons

Not really a lot to say here, general office poitics, wasn't crazy about the system used for mid-year and year end reviews

    I worked at Biogen Idec full-time

    Pros

    High salary, great boss, solid company

    Cons

    High turnover - people would leave every week
    Poor management - my boss was great, but most aren't and your life will be miserable here if you don't have a good boss
    You may (or may not) have a good salary, but you will work in a hostile environment (people go crazy with high turnover0

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do 360 reviews on people before they are promoted. Try to retain good people better. Jobs are hard to come by and it says something when people frequently quit a high-paying job.
