    Former Contractor - Consultant in Summit, NJ

    I worked at Celgene as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Ownership and trust in project assignments.
    Meaningful, impactful, life-saving product line in the oncology therapeutic area.
    Incredible shareholder value, stock has made steady climb for a few years.

    Cons

    Not much really, but controlled growth strategy might limit the full upside potential.
    Difficult to get hired full time. Many job postings stay up for months on end and never filled. A lot of the ads are not for immediate placement into full-time roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get too Merck-y! Forge your own path to success!

    I have been working at Celgene full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome people to work with, everyone is very caring and hard working. They work you hard but also understand work/life balance. Great team spirit with the patient always at the heart of every decision. The Summit campus is a great facility with a subsidized cafeteria. The future outlook of the company couldn't be better.

    Cons

    Must wear many hats, good amount of contractors. Recent employees are stiffed on stock options. Company continues to grow with minimal headcount

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep sticking to what has worked. However, open up headcount and let people focus on their specialities.

    I have been working at Celgene full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership is personable and attentive, creating a team atmosphere more than a manager-employee environment. Benefits like on-site cafeteria are huge.

    Cons

    There is a lot more meeting and planning for meetings than actual productivity. The company pays well, and could probably be more profitable without some of the less results-driven employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and expect high effort for high pay

    Pros

    There's so much to learn and overall great experience!

    Too much competition within the department!

    I worked at Celgene full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company is growing and has a lot of opportunities to offer in specific areas of the company. They offer competitive benefits. Exciting time to work for the company with so much potential in the industry.

    Cons

    Did not receive clear direction from head of department and not encouraged to ask questions on clarification of role in the department. The changing roles of the department can be frustrating to some.
