    CCT-
    Under qualified, inexperienced, unprofessional Management

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should replace CCT Management with people who know the industry and who know how to be professionals

    Pros

    Great pay, patient focused, and quality driven. From management to operator everyone here shares the same purpose.

    Location, if I could move this job closer to my family I would be 100% satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    None, they keep the company on the right track. Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive salary. High sense of collaboration and cooperation among most colleagues. Company makes an effort to give back and recognizes those employees who personify its values.

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement in some areas. Regular restructuring/lay-offs in some divisions resulting in constant feeling of job insecurity. Work/life balance could be better.

    Pros

    Good pay for the most part and hours are flexible. Most people stay for the stock rewards. People are impressed by the name...they wouldn't be if they really knew what went on here.

    Cons

    Your happiness and work/life balance with this company is directly tied to the division that you are in and your direct manager. Managers in some divisions have little leadership or management experience. There is a definite disconnect between Sr Leadership and certain divisions within the company. Little to no communication. Broken processes are just accepted as the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and reach out to your employees!! 360s should be mandatory throughout this company. No one should ever have an annual evaluation performed on them with less than a 12 month tenure. My HR business partner takes a week to answer questions.

    Pros

    Really good stock options. Decent PTO policy and health benefits. Casual dress on Fridays is nice.

    Cons

    HR Department is terrible. They aid and abet managers who want to railroad their employees out unfairly because of their own agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Be more equitable in your treatment of and respect towards lower-level employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Flexible atmosphere especially for people with families.

    Cons

    Favoritism Is rampant. Do not expect to move up the ladder unless you kiss or hooking up withe someone. As long as you look good you can do a bad job and still get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Perception is not reality. Actual job performance takes a backseat to perceived performance. Alot of ideas that sound end up creating more work for other people.

    Pros

    If you ever get hired, you'll have to do nothing for great benefits and stock options. You don't really need to know much to be a valued employee

    Cons

    They make sure everyone knows you are contractor by putting (non-Celgene) in your email address, the directory at every turn there is an employee to ask/tell you what work needs to be done. But don't expect any help, input or even instructions - but there is not shortage of people to critique what you

    Advice to Management

    Time to rethink your entire approach to IT, especially IT middle management
