Successful company
Associate Scientist I (Current Employee), Durham, NCMarch 14, 2014
Pros: work culture is relaxed because everyone works hard on their own
Cons: seems difficult to move up
When you have a thriving company like Biogen Idec, pretty much everything at work is provided for you to do your best work, be it well stocked break rooms, to excellent office and laboratory equipment. Culture is not incredibly strict, given that everyone is doing their work successfully. With that in mind, work hours are fairly flexible, which is very – more... nice for those with children or busy home schedules. – less

Associate I, Product Complaint (Former Employee), Cambridge, MAJanuary 2, 2014
Pros: encouraging and supportive team
Working in the labs and the desk job made my day very interesting.. The increasing number of products in the market kept us occupied and gave the team a room to exercise innovative ideas for more efficient procedures to meet the deadline. i was apart of an amazing team, supportive and very encouraging. The only difficult part was the change of the database – more... system and ever increasing number of complaints. I thoroughly enjoyed the group lunches and happy hours. – less

A good place to work with job security. The people are great to work with. Work Life Balance became a problem as management started changing.
Patient Services Coordinator (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCDecember 11, 2013
Pros: benefits, facility, people
Cons: work life balance, call center environment
A good place to work with great job security and excellent benefits. However work life balance can be an issue. The training provided is good but a huge learning curve. There is always a lot of work with lots of calls. If you don't like customer service then this is not the job for you. You have to have a heart for helping others and enjoy the healthcare – more... environment. – less

Sad to see it close in San Diego
Senior Associate Scientist (Former Employee), San Diego, CANovember 21, 2013
Pros: great building, great people, convenient location, challenging
Cons: typical industry draw backs -- too much to do with too little time.
Biogen IDEC was such a great place to work. As a long term employee (along with MANY others), compensation and benefits were great. Many of us had worked together for many years and knew we could depend on each other when the team had to pull together to produce data FAST.

It was really fast paced and specific responsibilities always changing to fit – more... the needs of the project and company. – less

Clinical Associate II (Former Employee), San Diego, CANovember 18, 2013
I truly liked working for this company when they were Idec. Once the merged and became Biogen Idec, it was a hostel take over. They gave Biogen employees certain things and did not apply them to the Idec employees. They laid off 150 + employees in the San Diego office. I wasn’t one of the 150 so I was saved due to my time of service with the company. – more... I think over all that it is great company to work for if you live in the Boston area and east coast. – less
