    I applied online. I interviewed at Biogen (Cambridge, MA (US)) in January 2021.

    I received an email from the recruiter 1 month after I applied for the position on Biogen website. I had a brief phone call with the hiring manager to discuss about the relevant experience and skills that I have. Few questions about my future and visa sponsorship in the future.

    Interview

    Very organized, timely and honest. The initial HR/recruiter discussion was open and informative, and the group interview was similarly comfortable but appropriately challenging. Got a good sense of what the group and job entail. Despite having to schedule during 2020, the process was very smooth.

    Grants Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Biogen.

    Interview

    I've never left a review on here, but I just keep thinking about the rude phone screen I had with HR. My original interview was postponed 30 minutes before it was set to start because the screener was ill (ok not a problem), but when it was rescheduled, this person spent the first 10 minutes telling me about their medical issues (?!) before getting to the interview part. In the background, I could hear them cooking breakfast and making food for the dog while "listening" to me. The screener said they would get back to me about next steps "by Monday at the absolute latest" and then even after following up, I never heard from them again.

    I interviewed, spoke with recruiter. Heard back weeks later after I emailed them. Then waited over a month to schedule the zoom interview. That was about an hour long.

    Phone screen first. This is the only part of the interview process I have completed thus far. With Covid restrictions and the molecule being under review by the FDA, the process has understandably been lengthy.
