    I worked at ImClone (Less than a year)

    Pros

    there are no positives. It basically convinced me that the pharma world was of no use yo me. I wasn't helping people. i was just trying to stay out of negative team dynamics. and woe to you if you tried to fix it

    Cons

    poor management backstabbing incompetent employees inflexible hostile work environment it was very hostile to work there . Managers were routinely hostile and backstops its employees

    Advice to Management

    change your management style and get some decent employee policies to retain what good employees you have left

    I have been working at ImClone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are located in central NJ for commuting.

    Cons

    The work environment is stressful. Its a very political place where you should not expect any support or any real change. Your asked to do more with less and the people that are part of your team don't pull their own weight.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create a better working environment, listen to your employees.

    I have been working at ImClone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some associates are bright, skilled resources.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, few growth opportunities, scapegoat culture.

    Advice to Management

    Grow your employees, take ownership of your projects instead of pushing everything down to associates who aren't empowered/capable/appropriate to make business decisions. Give credit where credit is due, don't just cast blame.

    Hit or Miss. Great if you're under the right manager/department. Dead in the water if you're not.

    I worked at ImClone full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great new facility. Lots of amenities in the NYC campus building. Research Associates for the most part are a great group of people to work with. Benefits are okay. Once ImClone was fully integrated into Lilly, PPOs were no longer an option for insurance. You now have the option of HSA or HRA, though the company does deposit money into those accounts at the beginning of the year. The standard time off allowed in 15 days and 1-2 floating holidays. The days between Dec 25-Jan 1 are also mandatory off days and do not count towards your earned vacation. Robust pipeline.

    Cons

    However, there is a large disconnect between the associate level and the scientist level. Very little work-life balance. Though there is an effort to make employees happy, it doesn't seem to be a genuine effort. Management will stab you in the back without a second thought to your well being. There isn't a lot of room for growth if you hold a bachelor's or master's degree.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring more associates and less upper management. Or, take drastic steps to ensure your managers are competent.

    I have been working at ImClone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work to fight cancer as Imclone is part of Lilly Oncology.

    Cons

    After fully integrated with Eli Lilly, now Imclone is just a part of a big pharma. A lot talented people left.

    Advice to Management

    Attract more talents.
