Watch out - management Really doesn't know what it's doing and just wants to cover up while cashing in themselves

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I have been working at Biogen Idec

ProsVery limited - good compensation with zero confidence in future plans

ConsToo many To list here - know what you're getting into

Advice to Senior ManagementSack everyone at the VP and senior / director level that doesn't know how to make a decision or just can't - clear out the deadwood before the forest fire consumes the companies future

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
