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

    Pros

    Patient - centric. Driving decision making to right functions and levels. Diverse portfolio. Increasing global impact. Good benefits including sabbatical after 6 years in service.

    Cons

    Neuro disease focus is a challenge and will require patience. This may be difficult to reconcile with short term Wall Street needs. Nimble decision making will increase uncertainty in workplace roles, responsibilities and locations.

    Advice to Management

    Good transparency to date. Continue to trust and share.
