used to be one of the great ones

Staff Associate (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA (US)

I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBenefits are outstanding and the work from home option is fantastic

ConsI agree with the cronyism-it needs to stop. As does the cesspool of cronyism and bullying in Quality and Manufacturing. You can royally screw up but as long as you booze with the right people it gets swept under the rug.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Disappointing

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Zug (Switzerland)

I worked at Biogen Idec full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Great products for MS patients, some nice people too. … Cons: Not the 'culture' that is touted by management. Several people who work there are back-stabbers and mobbers who pull the seniority card if they… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your employees. All of them, not just… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
