Looks great from outside the company...

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA (US)

ProsGreat salaries, benefits, some wonderfully smart, dedicated people work at Biogen Idec.

ConsThe company has become very political, recent hires are interested only in lots of money and promotions. Some of the worst managers I have ever seen work at Biogen Idec. No sense of teamwork anymore.

Realize that some people who are talented individual contributors need to remain individual contributors because they lack the social skills to lead. Please thoroughly vet the people you are considering making leaders.

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