I have been working at Biogen full-time (Less than a year)
Biogen is a medium-size biopharma with great company culture compared with most of Big Pharma. Salaries and benefits are competitive. They promote from within when people prove themselves as qualified. Don't be fooled by the titles at other companies. Many position titles at other pharmas are inflated. A Biogen Senior Director or Director is usually an important and influential position, and often manages a team (look at the comp and responsibilities compared with other companies before passing over applying to a position because you think it may be too junior) The caliber of senior management in the US is very high -- in experience, judgement and knowledge. There also value placed on your ability to work effectively with others. If you disagree with someone it's because they have a different point of view, not because they are an idiot. Managers seem to care about career development.
Some uncertainty about a pipeline that is focused solely in neuroscience with serving of biosimilars on the side.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Biogen (Weston, MA (US)) in September 2019.
The interview process was fairly straightforward. It started with a quick phone interview with the hiring manager, at which time I was invited to an in-person interview. The team wanted to hire quickly so I was brought in for an interview the following week. I met with 4 members of the team I would be working with for 30 minutes each (2 hours total). Culture fit was extremely important and this was what most of my questions were geared towards. It work about 3 weeks to receive a follow-up from my recruiter that the team had selected another candidate.
