Fulfilling place to work

Global Operations/PO&T (Current Employee)
Weston, MA (US)

I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time for more than a year

ProsGenerous 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.

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

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

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

Pros: Benefits are outstanding and the work from home option is… Cons: I agree with the cronyism-it needs to stop.
