Current management is not good

Associate Director (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA (US)

I worked at Biogen Idec full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSome 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.

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

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