    I worked at Celgene as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Celgene summer internship experience is wonderful. Even as a college intern, you are given responsibility and exposed to different aspects of the company. I worked in R&D but was also given the opportunity to give presentations, see the business side of things, and attend team meetings.

    Cons

    Really not many, it is definitely the best internship I have had so far. I would definitely recommend. Make sure you keep up with connections to secure future internships or job experiences. They will not keep up with you, you must keep in touch

    Advice to Management

    Have weekly intern meetings with all the interns so they can discuss what they're learning

    I have been working at Celgene full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic, fast-paced, innovative, passionate people

    Cons

    It's a growing ship with fewer and fewer workers---they like to run things very lean. This means lots of opportunity for impact, but also can be high stress with high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value and reward employees.

    Pros

    I'm grateful to work at a company like Celgene. Have been here ten years, and it's been a great ride. Strong culture (genuinely patient focused), entrepreneurial spirit where "disruptive thinking" is valued, high growth/career opportunities, impressive pipeline and solid leadership team. I'm guessing the "total rewards package" is the best in the industry ... generous equity program - stock options and/or RSU's rewarded at all levels ... as well as generous bonus plan for all levels. We work hard, but the rewards are great.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a challenge. High performance culture translates to lots of hours!

    Pros

    Collaborative invironment, great pay and great benefits with room to grow.
