Dynamic work environment with constant challenges and very good benefits

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA (US)

I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time

ProsVery good product pipeline with good vision of where the company is headed. Benefits are excellent. Company does a good job of soliciting and acting on employee feed back.

ConsStrategy for augmenting pipeline seems to be moving in the direction of acquisition and collaboration instead of internally developed. Not a bad strategy but keeps employees in the dark about future pipeline and what role current employees will play in the development cycle

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Principal Investigator (Former Employee)

I worked at Biogen Idec full-time for 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… Cons: Vicious, relentless political infighting. Every department, every level, every day, played out… Advice to Senior Management: Focus on neurology, dump immunology (its hopeless), remove middle management across the company,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
