Research Associate (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – September 20, 2017
I worked at Biogen 6 years. I began in clinical assessments of HIV positive patients, in Biogen's clinical trials. After a couple of years, my role was pure HIV related research. Hours were long, and I'd little time for a social/home life.
Co-op Intern (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – September 4, 2017
It is great opportunity for me to work at Biogen. I have learned a lot from the company and the people in Biogen, great company culture, working attitude and team cooperation. They follow their creed: care deeply, work fearlessly.
Biogen is a great company. Only problem is they have lay off every 5 years so the career stability is not guaranteed. The company shifts organizationally too often not giving time to adjust to new management.
Free lunches, career advancement, work life balnce
Manufacturing Associate III (Current Employee) – Morrisville, NC – August 16, 2017
Great pay, great benefits, great work/life balance for some areas. Management a little fickle and top heavy, but otherwise decent. Definitely a lot of growth in the future with new drugs and contract work, but hard to land a job here and people do not quit due to the quality of the benefits.
Benefits, cheap cafeteria food, stock options, decent raises and bonuses
Top heavy management, bureaucratic red tape in a lot of places, old leadership that needs replacing
Manufacturing Support Engineer (Current Employee) – Research Triangle Park, NC – August 3, 2017
Good work environment Gap between higher management level and staff working on the floor Overall great learning experience. Your immediate supervisor will give you chance to learn if you are willing to learn new stuff.
Top talent has either already left or has one foot out the door
Manager (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – June 28, 2017
Its a mess, chaos. It was a great company and will be a great company again once the pipeline moves along a bit. Was packed with great people, now gutted to the bone. If you come here you will inherit a disaster and be cut when it blows up on you, which probably won't take long. In the meantime you will have no idea what your priorities are supposed to be. Find someplace else and revisit Biogen if you want to in a couple years when its had time to sort itself out.
chaos is a good teacher
right now, everything on your list of good employer criteria
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – June 27, 2017
Working for Biogen was very exciting. The company always give you opportunity to grow in the company. It was normally a exciting and fun atmosphere. Working for this company I felt that I was being helpful to someone needs that's what made it worth it!
Supervisor, Accounts Payable (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – June 26, 2017
Limited time at Biogen, 8 months only. Department environment was very stressful, no accountability for individual work. Department at odds with another department, passing the buck. Just not a good experience.
IT Project Manager I&O/CISO/DR (Contract) (Current Employee) – Weston, MA – June 20, 2017
On my first day I found out that contractors are rotated every six months, there is no opportunity for advancement or permanent placement. You are thrown into an unorganized environment. They are misleading during interviews.
Weston is a beautiful location. The contractors all support each other.
No chance for hire, despite promises, Rotation of contractors every six months
Documentation Specialist/Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – June 14, 2017
Your day goes as well as you plan it. The ability to multitask, willingness, work with different team, and the willingness to accept change is important. People are willing to help to guide you to other people who can help. There is something to working in a world class biotech company that is rewarding.
