Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Biogen (Cambridge, MA) in March 2017.

Interview

I was contacted by Biogen to interview for a summer intern position. HR contacted me and we had a pre-interview conversation. Biogen really seemed like they wanted me to do well. HR was very prompt and easy to communicate with, which has been rare for me while applying for intern positions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Biogen (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    Easy if you know someone. Otherwise they drill you a lot to select the best candidate. People are nice and friendly. Most of them internationals if you are into sciences. They will explain the requirement very well. So you will go in with some understanding of what is expected from you.

    Was emailed saying that someone was interested in interviewing me and asked what time I would be available. The interview was mostly about the type of project I would be working on if I got the internship.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Biogen (Cambridge, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I had expressed my interest in the internship I ultimately applied for moths before it was posted online. I was interviewed by phone and it turned into a very good conversation about my research experience and the project I am currently working on. I suggest understanding the details of your previous work and understanding the theory behind the assays and techniques that you use in your research. Towards the end of the interview I was asked to supply a reference which I did by email. I had worked very closely with my reference for over a year and we worked very well together. I think that this was very good for my application. I think that they initially were going to bring me in for an onsite interview but I ended up just having a phone interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Biogen (Cambridge, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was a fairly informal process. I think that most people who get jobs as interns have some connections. With connections, the process is fairly easy but without connections, I think it is very difficult. Only asked fit questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Biogen (Cambridge, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick and to the point with questions. Low pressure. One issue was a difference in engineering majors but was able to assure interviewer this wouldn't be a huge issue. Overall, a normal experience with straight forward and expected questions. Spoke directly to the project/hiring manager. Seemed to be an approachable guy and was not out to grill with questions but rather make sure that our interests were aligned.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Biogen in April 2017.

    Interview

    The conversation with the Hiring Manager was good and very friendly.

    HR was unknowing (about the position, the company itself) and unprofessional, no feedback was given. HR promised me to consider me for another position - but did not.
