I worked at Biogen Idec as an intern for less than a year

Pros

-Great flexibility with project selection/progression and involvement with different scientists.
-My co-mentors were always supportive, helpful and wanted me to learn new techniques and experiments
-Since Cambridge is the company's main R&D site, there were lots of fellow interns (~30) and therefore many intern-specific events and fun activities

Cons

-A major R&D reorganization that resulted in firing of 1/3 of a department. Projects and people were getting shifted around a lot after that.

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

    Pros

    I love the other interns here. We get along very well along with the other people here. I have a lot of fun in the lab and I have my own project.

    Cons

    The days can sometimes be long and there is a lot of data collection at times so it can be slow. But the work is interesting and I learn a lot from it.
