    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.

    I worked at Celgene full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A company that is really making a difference in patient's lives. You feel like you're a part of something big. Excellent benefits and pay. The stock is a really nice perk. Once you hit 3 years your stocks have vested and you'll get stock payouts every year. This is a nice benefit as it's an add-on to your salary.

    Cons

    I&I is headed down a difficult path right now but should have some a nice boost with the NS division. Most of those in the Sales Leadership role are very transparent and fair. Most are very good with people but there are a few outliers that are more focused on themselves then developing the people they lead... but don't worry, it's obvious to recognize who those people are.

    Advice to Management

    You've got some really wonderful people there that can really make a difference if they are coached effectively. The problem is, some of your coaches (Sales Leaders) would rather point out the "issues" with people rather than coach to their strengths.
