I have been working at Biogen full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great place to start to learn about corporate america and learn about the foundation that drives a culture of excellence. Great employees. excellent benefits. Family oriented. Flexible schedules

Cons

Biogen Idec known to take the easy way out and give up on really great people who have maybe made a mistake once before that becomes hard to break from. that one instance follows you up till the point the company finds a reason to fire you.

Advice to Management

Go above and beyond supporting and advocating for employees. Actually believing in the goodness in them instead of keeping them isolated from other opportunities b/c of a mistake. Empower employees to reach their highest potential and spend more time developing them.
