I have been working at Biogen Idec

Pros

Excellent science, top tier peers, opportunities to make an impact.

Cons

Unstable work environment. The company needs experienced, strong, and effective leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Biogen Idec is currently in a period of restructuring the entire organization to prepare for the future, senior leadership needs to be held accountable for any changes that are brought forth and do not result in a growth of the company. Shareholders and employees would best be served by knowing how senior leadership will be held accountable for detrimental decisions.

    Pros

    Good place to grow. Significant independence, good work and life balance. Chances to contribute significantly to ongoing projects. New ideas are valued.

    Cons

    As usual some internal politics, need to have right connections to grow. Sometimes pace of work is slow and things get delayed due to unnecessary reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more accountability and sense of urgency should be developed not only in top level but also at lower levels.

    Pros

    Great collaborate culture that is non-competitive, everyone works together toward a common goal. Company promotes work-life balance and networking among peers. Has a wonderful community lab to inspire school age kids to go into science.

    Cons

    Uncertainty of the future with new CEO and head of R&D. There was not always transparency in communication from upper management but this is something that seems to be improving and only time will tell how things are turned around under the new management.
