    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Biogen (Cambridge, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I only went through a brief phone screen with an external HR rep followed by my manager. The total process lasted at most 25 minutes. This showed in the quality of the interns they brought in. They would have benefited from meeting the candidates in person.

    Interview

    Phone screen, half a day interview with hiring manager, co-workers, other stakeholders. People are pretty open about the culture and job style. The selection process for interview takes a long time and potential employee needs to be patient. After the interview selection process is not that long.
