Biogen Idec was a joy to work for

Research Associate (Current Employee)
La Jolla, CA (US)

I have been working at Biogen Idec full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe people! Who would have thought you would meet so many great people working in an analytics lab. I really loved going to work everyday due to the positive atmosphere at this company.

ConsThere aren't many cons. I suppose the layoffs are a con but otherwise working at Biogen Ides was pretty great. They treated us well.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
