    Pros

    Leaders at BioMarin are extremely supportive when it comes to career development. They are more than willing to provide you with the necessary tools to move up within the company, whether it's in your current group, or another department.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons to working at BioMarin. But the campus is not centrally located and the commute can be tough.

    Pros

    The company and what it stands for is incredible. With the exception of some headcount loss in the past two years, I have had nothing but a great experience working here.
