What's the role? Feel like the company's future hinges on Aducanumab

Sounds like you might have beaten me for this role 😂😂😂. Congrats!

I was super excited about the position but was cautious about what happens org wide if the Aducanumab approval goes bust. I know the biosimilars unit is separate, but nothing is ever 100% firewalled. Did you talk to any of the interviewers about job security with that huge variable? They might be the best to help you here.

Absolutely love it here! Great culture and interesting work - especially if you like neuroscience. Benefits and comp are great (eg bonus funding was 136% in 2019 and 106% in 2020).

You’re absolutely right - a lot rests on ADU. But if ADU isn’t approved andthere are layoffs, they would be focused on the 100s of people hired to support the ADU launch. The rest of the company is lean so unlikely to see any substantive reduction.

The upside (ie ADU approval) is absolutely massive. And if it doesn’t get approved and we do somehow get laid off (again, unlikely) - there are plenty of biotech jobs in Cambridge. There is a ton of pharma activity in neuroscience - and Biogen is a great breeding ground for talent.

Everyone I know here thinks the upside is 100% worth the risk.

Unfortunately noI don’t - haven’t worked w that group yet

I’m in Boston, so if you’re joining the Cambridge office this is a great move!

The area is a hot bed for biotech/pharma, so even if you don’t like the firm, you can always shift.

Also, it helps with long-term career progression because there are constantly new companies being formed from local VCs, so more senior people will leave and open opportunities for advancement.

This is in contrast to for example Pfizer in NYC. No other pharma really has a presence in NYC, so for people who want to live in the city, they are essentially stuck.

This can lead to overall career stagnation, while you wait for people to retire for example.

I was asked my salary expectations for a role so I tried to do research on it and ended up finding nothing for the NYC area. So then I just went based of my salary 70k (now) in Dallas to 88k max and they said no. Then I went lower. Then they ended up calling me saying no. Then I finally asked if this is a new position since I couldn’t find any info on it and it is. So they ended up giving me their max comp of 80. It’s for Amazon so that’s not inclusive of stocks and all stuff. (Contd)
