    Pros

    Biogen is an Innovative company, has a strong commitment to science; offers generous benefits; and places a premium on employee safety.

    Cons

    High degree of instability; CEO is a tyrant and has diverted the organization from its traditional mission; Biogen used to be a rewarding place to work and fostered an environment that welcomed new ideas; under current CEO, employees live in constant fear and survival seems to be the sole focus.

    Advice to Management

    Return to traditional Biogen values; get rid of CEO.

    I worked at Biogen full-time

    Pros

    This is by far the best company I've worked for. Many perks.

    Cons

    To many snowflakes. People in management that have zero people skills. Employees need to be rotated around to reduce stagnation and homesteading.

    Advice to Management

    Train your department managers how to deal with internal conflicts.
