    I have been working at Biogen Idec as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Being a contractor at my previous company was not a good experience. However, compared to my last contract assignment, being a contractor at Biogen Idec as been a great experience. The group that I'm assigned to has really been great to work with. My manager has been flexible with my work hours. And it does seem like Biogen Idec takes care of it's permanent employees.

    Cons

    I have heard other employees mumble about seniority does not matter here, especially if you're a little outspoken.

    Pros

    Great corporate culture and benefits

    Cons

    Because it's a large company, there's a bit of beauracracy, but it's not terrible.
