I worked at Biogen full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Pay and package is highly competitive; Great science; Great people; flexible working; lovely offices.

Cons

Culture was the best thing about Biogen when I started; sadly declining rapidly as hiring more detached management style at the top. Pipeline constraints - but they have been there before and no doubt will find a way to recover.

Advice to Management

Keep focus on the task to grow without falling into the pitfalls of "big pharma" - ensure employees feel valued.

    I worked at Biogen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Biogen for over 10 years - was a great place to work and you really felt we were making a difference to patients lives - managers listened and we felt empowered - culture was very good

    Cons

    Leadership has become weak, bullies prevail, HR are puppets and fawn to their MD
    Dissenting voices are silenced, SOPs are pretty much all the training you get - no structure to proper development

    Advice to Management

    Culture comes from top down so that’s where change needs to start
    Time to run a survey that is non biased and not run by HR
