Overall a decent company, but management leaves much to be desired.

I worked at Biogen Idec

Pros

Good benefits, most of the employees are nice and welcome new staff and are helpful, great starting work experience for biotech on resume.

Cons

Most managers are too caught up in their own world and they do not reward their staff for what they accomplish. Lower salary structure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your staff and offer bonuses and better raises as they are the ones that make the company what it is today

    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.

    I have been working at Biogen Idec

    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.
