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

    Pros

    -Intelligent, creative and friendly people.
    -Good benefits, decent salary, and BEER HOUR!
    -Nice cafeteria, nice gym, nice campus.
    -Stock is higher than it has ever been.
    -Promising pipeline.

    Cons

    -Very political. It's all about who you know no matter how hard you work. Promotions and fun projects are given to the popular kids, just like in high school.
    -Low morale due to the various layoffs. They do small department layoffs and they are secretive about it.
    -Many managers aren't managing anything or anybody. There are some dead bodies that could easily be replaced with ambitious and excited new employees.
    -Positions are created out of nowhere to please certain individuals looking for a higher title/pay.
    -Lots of office gossip.
    -Work/Life Balance? Yeah right! Expect to work nights and weekends whether you are in the labs or in an office job.

    Advice to Management

    Note to Upper Management: learn to make up your mind and make decisions in a timely manner. Don't pretend you are transparent when you are not. Stop talking about improving processes, just pick a new path and go with it, learn to mitigate risk. Communication to your employees needs to be more frequent and deliver stronger "gettothepoint!" messages.
