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

    Pros

    Exciting company focused on innovative science with a promising pipeline. The organization is pretty lean so there's opportunity to learn outside of your immediate job responsibilities. Good employee perks such as use of the gym, outside gym reimbursement and free subway pass. Great group of colleagues and a good amount of social events.

    Cons

    Bad traffic on CambridgePark drive. Not an issue if you take the subway in.

    Scientist I - Analytical Development Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Celgene (Summit, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Met with a Senior Director at a career fair during a scientific conference. Was asked to perform a phone interview with the Analytical Development department one month after first meeting. Two weeks after the phone interview, I was invited on-site and spent a full day interviewing with several members in the department. I was also required to give a 1-hour research presentation as part of the interview. An offer was extended two days after the site interview.
