Once great, now big pharma
Director (Current Employee), CambridgeMarch 9, 2015
New management are focused on constant re-orgs and re-structures, by the time the dust settles and you figure out what is going on, another one is happening. Used to be a great company with a great community. Now it is eat or be eaten.

IT (Current Employee), RaleighMarch 8, 2015
Pros: high pay compared to market.
Cons: poor work-life balance, unflexible schedules, expect ot
This place is no joke, and they compensate well to prove it. But work life balance is a joke, they have a hard time hiring younger people that want a flexible schedule, many unhappy faces these days

World class company in biopharmaceutical research and development but with an ever evolving culture and management style
Technical Development, Scientist/Manager (Former Employee), Cambridge, MaMarch 5, 2015
Pros: modern work environment, excellent compensation
Cons: commuting into cambridge, potentially long work hours
My review is based on 26 years working in the Technical Development Department. Working at Biogen Idec is greatly rewarding but demands the most from you. The company has always run lean on headcount so expect to have more than enough work. Compensation is excellent including vacation days. Management is moving towards flexibility in work schedule and working out-of-office but this has not translate to the TD department. Biogen historically has done business in a matrix/team effort which at times results in no one owning a final decision. Your colleagues are excellent people and dedicated to the job. As Biogen matures into a prominent biopharmaceutical company, other job opportunities become available for employees to consider. It is not unusual to find employees who have been with the company for 10+ years.

Excellent company with great vision
Infusion Account Manager (Current Employee), MI, IN, OH territoryFebruary 12, 2015
Excellent company to work for, with great people and vision. Hard charging, high expectations, but pays great dividends. My job entails a lot of travel in a large territory in order to educate HCP's and patients on a specific drug and disease state. I had to be very organized, able to respond quickly, and have a very broad knowledge base. The most difficult part of the job was keeping up with reimbursement in MI, the most enjoyable part of the job were the Clinical Roundtable Dinners.

Working at Biogen Idec
Senior Administrative Assistant, PO&T (Current Employee), Cambridge, MaJanuary 14, 2015
Biogen Idec has been fantastic company to work for. During a typical day I can be working on anything from budgets and purchasing, to travel arrangements and supply ordering. The management team is really supportive, and assist everyone in driving towards their goals.

The hardest part of the job can sometimes be fitting everything into 8 hours, so there is the need for the occasional overtime. The best part of the job are my coworkers, who have become my second family.
