I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time (more than 5 years)

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 full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Core sciences (immunology, protein biochemistry) were, at one time, world class. The Neuro group, while weak in Discovery research, can execute on clinical development like no one else in the MS field. Company has had more positive impact on MS patients lives than all others combined.

    Cons

    Vicious, relentless political infighting. Every department, every level, every day, played out against a vapid and hypocritical message of transparency and openness. Just vile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on neurology, dump immunology (its hopeless), remove middle management across the company, fire 2/3rds of the VPs, and read your own vision and core values statements
