Pros

Benefits, pay (competitive), work life balance (improving with some departments offering greater flexibility than others)

Cons

Lack of diversity in management (mid-level & senior). Promotions are far between ((avg 3-5 years) and based more on time served vs consistent high performance and demonstrated performance at the next level.

Advice to Management

Diversify management by tapping into key internal high performing talent that have demonstrated leadership capabilities.

    I worked at Biogen Idec as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great flexibility with project selection/progression and involvement with different scientists. -My co-mentors were always supportive, helpful and wanted me to learn new techniques and experiments -Since Cambridge is the company's main R&D site, there were lots of fellow interns (~30) and therefore many intern-specific events and fun activities

    Cons

    -A major R&D reorganization that resulted in firing of 1/3 of a department. Projects and people were getting shifted around a lot after that.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    I love the other interns here. We get along very well along with the other people here. I have a lot of fun in the lab and I have my own project.

    Cons

    The days can sometimes be long and there is a lot of data collection at times so it can be slow. But the work is interesting and I learn a lot from it.

    Advice to Management

    Great job no advice
