    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 for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at ImClone full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The culture, training, and facility there is top notch

    Cons

    Lower on the pay scale, little room for advancement into the professional/management track

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, develop the employees so they will stay. Low pay and no promotions is a sure formula for hemorrhaging your best talents

    I worked at ImClone full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Solid process in place, good entry level job to start learning the equipment, process, and pharma industry.

    Cons

    Hard to promote, stick to a firm 2 year MINIMUM between promotions even if you receive "CE" reviews.
    Company moral and staff moral was low. Downsizing during company buyout. Building that I worked in shutdown and in no longer used, I cannot speak for the other buildings.

    No advancement in knowledge opportunities (no outside classes / trainings / conferences offered to technicians as opposed to other companies i have worked at).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people who do well and are ambitious.
