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

Pros

Core sciences (immunology, protein biochemistry) were, at one time, world class. The Neuro group, while weak in Discovery research, can execute on clinical development like no one else in the MS field. Company has had more positive impact on MS patients lives than all others combined.

Cons

Vicious, relentless political infighting. Every department, every level, every day, played out against a vapid and hypocritical message of transparency and openness. Just vile.

Advice to Management

Focus on neurology, dump immunology (its hopeless), remove middle management across the company, fire 2/3rds of the VPs, and read your own vision and core values statements

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

    Pros

    Great corporate culture and benefits

    Cons

    Because it's a large company, there's a bit of beauracracy, but it's not terrible.

    Spend more time developing your valuable employees.
