    I have been working at Biogen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are extremely good and work-life balance is great

    Cons

    Career opportunities are not abundant and promotions are uncommon. It is far easier to apply for another, higher position rather than wait for a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Management went through a re-organization last year after layoffs and the new structure has not been successful for specific groups. Own up to the mistake that those groups are not successful because of the way it was re-organized and stop blaming poor performance of employees.
