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

Pros: encouraging and supportive team
Working in the labs and the desk job made my day very interesting..

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
