I worked at Biogen Idec as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

I loved being a speaker/advocate for Biogen Idec, they always put me up in beautiful hotels when I traveled, paid well, extremely friendly and hospitable in most ways!

Cons

Once I threw out some suggestions to enhance the products they pushed
I was PUSHED OUT the door!! It was heart wrenching the closed minds there.,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the advocates when suggestions to enhance shots for MS patients. At least give it the time of day.,
