    I have been working at Celgene full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent sense of community and most people are excited about the company mission. Suggestions are always heard, even if they aren't implemented. Great salary, employees are treated well.

    Cons

    All of the facilities really need some work. Too many people travel from location to location throughout the workday for meetings because they can't find one office big enough to hold everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Talk more to other departments. Chances are your changes indirectly impact someone in another group.

    I have been working at Celgene full-time

    Pros

    Celgene is the best company I have ever worked for. The company really cares about their employees and understand that they are their best investment Salary and benefits as well as work/life balance is great Our purpose is all about the patients we serve - That culture is driven from executive management down within the organization

    Cons

    Does not utilize the talent Celgene has attracted to their full capabilities and/or potential. Does not have a strong personnel development program (could be due to the top talent they hire??)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
