    I have been working at Biogen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generous salary, stock options and benefits. The company has also had a recent rollout of flex work options – employees can work from home up to 3 days per week if they want. The work itself is overall fulfilling; although I am on the operations side of the business, I do feel at the end of the day the work I am doing is benefiting someone’s life and their health. I feel the senior management communicates well with employees and find our CEO and executive leadership to be humble and a ‘all hands on deck’ attitude. They truly seem to value each employee’s contributions.

    Cons

    Workload can be a lot at times, however the company recognizes hard work and collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the good work. I don’t know how I will ever want to leave the company!


  3. "Growing company with great ethics"

    Pros

    Biogen Idec is currently on the rise with product development, so the work is ample and exciting. Good products also bring a positive atmosphere to the company and the workers there. You also have a sense at the company that the executives care not only about the profit but also the employees and the well-being of the employees and their families.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    The people! Who would have thought you would meet so many great people working in an analytics lab. I really loved going to work everyday due to the positive atmosphere at this company.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons. I suppose the layoffs are a con but otherwise working at Biogen Ides was pretty great. They treated us well.
