    I have been working at ImClone as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, always something new to learn, and opportunities to move up. I really enjoyed working with this company and would do it again.

    Cons

    After being bought by Lilly, the community aspect lessened. Morale also decreased. However, this is only known if you worked there before the takeover. The company is still great after acquisition just not as awesome as it used to be.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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
