    I have been working at Biogen full-time

    Pros

    Really cares about the employees. Has really good benefits, promotes work/life balance, recognizes good performers

    Cons

    Sometimes politics exist between sites. Almost like there is a competition between this site and that site instead of seeing all of us as part of a whole

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, health care and dental plan, and awesome employee stock purchase program. Also food in the cafeteria is subsidized, so breakfast and lunch are super cheap and pretty high quality.

    Cons

    Disconnect between management and manufacturing associates on the floor. A lot of decisions that get passed down to the people making the actual product don't make much sense. Could be better communication across departments

    Advice to Management

    Trust your senior level MA's. If someone has been processing for 12 years, they usually know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Hours, pay and benefits are best in the market. coworkers are great and easy to build rapport with members on all levels.

    Cons

    Really don't have much to say on Cons. I guess a little favoritism goes on within some departments but I really think it goes on in all businesses.

    None, at this time, don't wanna look a gift horse in the mouth.

    If people don't want to work and can't follow a few simple rules, document it and make it stick.
