(Generally) Positive Internship Experience

Summer Intern (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA (US)

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.
