    I have been working at Celgene full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexible, ethical, people, compassionate, hard-working, culture, etc.

    The location is not the most convenient, but with their flexible work policy it is doable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, it is going in the right direction.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Celgene full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall compensation package is decent. Benefit is comprehensive. People are respectful. Managers are reasonable. Career development is promising. Professional working environment. Good science and project management. Work/life balance is valued.

    Cons

    Workload can be heavy and requires exceptional project/time management, all for moving business forward, but your hard work will be recognized and valued. Though work/life balance is valued, sometimes it's hard to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Hire sufficient work force to cover workload and personnel turnover.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Celgene full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, nice facilities, cafeteria food not bad

    Cons

    Cliques and preferential treatment for those that are friends with the right folks. Opportunities are given to some and not others (based on wether you are in the right circles). I see folks working for 10- 12 years (great at what they do too)- no promotions, meanwhile, someone does 1 DMC and gets promoted (actual scenario here)... but hey it is what it is, happy I’m out of there.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to well developed/ dedicated employees, and reward them too.

    Pros

    Company was great. Not anymore.

    Cons

    Everything. However, they don't care to know what's really wrong because they blame the employee.

      I have been working at Celgene full-time

      Pros

      Focused on curing disease - it is at the forefront of every effort and even in the IT teams, it is the priority driver, not empire building or IT for IT, but rather saving patients lives - it makes coming to work exciting and worth while.

      Cons

      Going through growing pains scaling from small to enterprise - contractors are used for many roles that you would expect an FTE in.
