    Nice place to work. Diverse and an all inclusive culture. You get to set your daily hours 8-4, 7-3 etc. Enjoyed the two days per week work from home.

    Nothing to write about. All the experience was positive, from onboarding to handing you the tools to do the job. Open door policy is encouraged from top-down

    I have been working at Celgene full-time

    Pros

    Compensation, culture, smart people, growing organization/energy, multiple products. Restricted stock units! Overall, good culture, energy, and work environment. Lean organization so opportunity to take on more work and learn faster

    Cons

    Slowly becoming big pharma/hierarchical. Career progression can be hit or miss depending on political standing within organization. Depends on how much superiors with political capital 'advocate' for you. Some deserving people are passed over for promotions because of favoritism and inconsistency across the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your talent, particularly at junior level. Check in to make sure employees are happy with current situation and career goals are being met. Do skip level meetings so employees do not always have to go through supervisors. Make it easier for employees to move between departments - currently can be very challenging, hit/or miss.

    I have been working at Celgene as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is passionate about what they do, at all levels. I have been impressed by the dedication to quality and patient care, and that is reflected in all areas of the business.

    Cons

    Any negatives are not really related to the Phoenix operation itself, so much as the growing pains of the corporation as a whole. Management from other locations does not always appear to understand or appreciate the challenges faced by the local site.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the dialogue with resources from multiple areas and levels of the operation, encouraging their innovation and ingenuity as new challenges or streamlining opportunities arise, and then keep these resources engaged as those solutions come to fruition.
