    Pros

    Interns were treated well by full-time employees and given challenging work.

    Cons

    None as an intern. Some of the full-time lower level scientists complained about lack of opportunities for advancement but that seems to be common in biotech if you don't have a Ph.D.

    I worked at Biogen as an intern (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.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    I have been working at Biogen as an intern (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.

    Advice to Management

    Great job no advice
