    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.

    I worked at Biogen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance, benefits. Salary and other compensation can be good but you need to start high because there's no real growth.

    Cons

    No career growth for majority of staff, great place to start for entry level but don't plan to stay more than 4-5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Internal candidates can bring new ideas to a new department...no need to always hire externally.

    Pros

    Great benefits package and good work environment. Projects are very interesting. There are a lot of great research seminars, and the expertise is top notch.

    Cons

    Recent changes have limited tuition reimbursement significantly. The old policy was 80% for approved degrees over some base amount I think $5k or $10k. Now it is $10k maximum to approved programs/classes.
