I worked at Biogen full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Excellent people, benefits, and industry. Biogen is an excellent company to work for it's nice to know that you are helping people in need.

Cons

Corporate workload and turnover of finance and senior management. Can get very political and sometimes project work doesn't add value.

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

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility is given to employees, primarily because the company is so lean. So it is a great place to work if you are one of those "live to work' people. The pay is also above average, and string 3-4 years together like I have and you can save some serious cash (of course, a chunk of that comes from stock price increases, which almost certainly won't keep at most recent pace)

    Cons

    Can a company be too collaborative? This one is: lots of time is spent in large, all-day meetings trying to gain consensus; which is nearly impossible and a waste of precious time. This leaves nearly everyone gasping for air, and doing their day jobs late at night, early in the a.m. while th kids are still sleeping, and on weekends. Also, the range of expectations, based on what group you are in, is unbelieveable. Some groups are responsible for following everything. Other groups seem to have few expectations to meet. I feel bad for the commercial people in the US. They have no lives. Finally, the hours here can be extreme.

    Advice to Management

    employee retention rates will almost certainly jump soon...lots of folks are absolutely burnt
