Pros

Generous salary, stock options and benefits. The company has also had a recent rollout of flex work options – employees can work from home up to 3 days per week if they want. The work itself is overall fulfilling; although I am on the operations side of the business, I do feel at the end of the day the work I am doing is benefiting someone’s life and their health. I feel the senior management communicates well with employees and find our CEO and executive leadership to be humble and a ‘all hands on deck’ attitude. They truly seem to value each employee’s contributions.

Cons

Workload can be a lot at times, however the company recognizes hard work and collaboration.

Advice to Management

Keep up with the good work. I don’t know how I will ever want to leave the company!

    Pros

    Some outstanding people there positioned the company where it is today. Current earnings and drugs coming to market were the result of great foresight from those individuals.

    Cons

    Current management is taking credit for their predecessors but underperforming now. Mismanagement and a reversion to failed practices from the past don't bode well for the long run. They speak a good game but practice taking the money and I bet they will run before the floor drops.

    Advice to Management

    Reverse course now. Stop your cronyism and keep good people that put Biogen where it is today
