No opinion of CEO

I worked at Biogen full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits, wonderful people, many scientific resources available to employees, work-life balance is ok bordering on good.

Cons

HR department seems to not really connect with the employees. Career development seems to take a back seat and overall communication from upper management was not well thought out/ bordering on poor.

Advice to Management

More open communication with employees, help employees have more ownership of their work and spend more time on career development

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Biogen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary was great, benefits were awesome, most of the employees were very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy sharing what they knew,

    Cons

    some micro managing, not by all, but those who seemed to have something to prove
    no management training program (if there was one, some managers needed constant refreshers)
    limited promotional path

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, stop promoting because of who you know, management training program (not everyone is qualified to "lead" others)
