Very productive company with a good work-life-balance
Development Support (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAMay 5, 2017
Where I worked was several hours earlier than the "core hours" and it would generally be a medium-paced environment. This was due to my specific group would liase with other company groups, which provided the opportunity for insight into other aspects of a biotech company.
Pros
Very open to helping their employees advance their knowledge and invest in themselves.
Cons
Upper Management could communicate better

Great company
Scientist (contractor) (Current Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCApril 20, 2017
Pros: 1. great benefits and lots of perks.
2. Work life balance


Cons: They need the exact experience to hire you. So either get in here when you are a fresh graduate, or get exact experience from other pharma and then get hired. For those who has lots of indirect experience, it is hard to start at comparable level in here.

Worked on many great international projects which required flexibility regarding the time of day for meetings. For example if there was a meeting with a team member in Japan then it meant night or day for some of the individuals.

Had its hay day
Associate Director (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAMarch 29, 2017
Was at Biogen for the boom years - company was very generous and a comfortable place to work. But company fell on hard times with the failure of some clinical trials - this led to perpetual rolling layoffs, massive turnover in leadership and a lot of uncertainty.
