    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 Management

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

  2. Helpful (1)

    Lack of communication. Management. changes their minds about direction often.

    Pros

    I did have one manager that was a good leader but the company squeezed this individual out of the company.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication from management. Also, the goals change constantly with no communication about direction. I had several management changes and some of them were unstable personalities. Those that are unstable tend to get promoted. The company also tends to hire those connected to people already working there ie. Friends, relatives, etc.. The group I am in doesn't promote team work. There was no training or SOPs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the gossip and things that aren't important to the work. Focus on the work and communicate the goals to the team. Promote team work & SOPs & Training.

    Pros

    Pros are for employees - good benefits, nice facilities, nice "extras". As a contractor, I was paid well, but never hired.

    Cons

    Contractors work in 6 months stints. Celgene stopped hiring from contractors. If what you do is core for the business, you may be hired eventually. If you are in an any kind of support role, you will not.

  7. Good Pharma biotech company to work for.

    Pros

    Takes care of their employees. Good benefit.

    Cons

    Politics at VP level in various departments may mask the real problem solving that can be done at mid management level.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your mid level employees more.

    Pros

    The people are great, and it's a wonderful working environment. Compensation is great, and they offer stock options. It's a company that is doing well despite the awful economy.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity for advancement for an administrative assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your internal people for jobs first. If you don't find a suitable candidate in-house, then consider outside applications. Developing current employees should be a priority.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for. Everyone was really friendly, and even though it is a big company, you don't get lost in the system. I am not sure about benefits since it was only a contract, but full-time employees seemed very satisfied.

    Cons

    It was only a contract position, and positions don't open up often.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Cons

    Too much competition within the department!

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a chance to showcase their talent rather than recycling the same people over and over again.
