I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Benefits are outstanding and the work from home option is fantastic

Cons

I agree with the cronyism-it needs to stop. As does the cesspool of cronyism and bullying in Quality and Manufacturing. You can royally screw up but as long as you booze with the right people it gets swept under the rug.

    I worked at Biogen Idec full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some outstanding people there positioned the company where it is today. Current earnings and drugs coming to market were the result of great foresight from those individuals.

    Cons

    Current management is taking credit for their predecessors but underperforming now. Mismanagement and a reversion to failed practices from the past don't bode well for the long run. They speak a good game but practice taking the money and I bet they will run before the floor drops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reverse course now. Stop your cronyism and keep good people that put Biogen where it is today
