Featured Review

Former Employee - Sales Force Effectiveness Manager

I worked at Biogen full-time

Pros

Great culture, great salary, great bonuses and other incentives

Cons

At times there are political plays over ownership of various tasks and projects. Some employees will try and position themselves as leaders of these projects at the expense of colleagues.

Advice to Management

Focus on the benefits each employee brings to the company at all times.

I have been working at CSL

Pros

We make life saving products and people who work here have a real sense of purpose. The Company is high integrity and there is plenty of scope for advancement as they like to promote internally. The... international aspect is good - we have a lot of contact with colleagues from around the world and the Company believes in supporting travel to work face to face with colleagues and build strong relationshios. The Company is financially secure.

Cons

The site and some of the offices in Melbourne are old fashioned and a bit shabby. If you are working on international projects youj often have to take calls late at night.
