    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Celgene full-time for less 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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Celgene full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Full experiential immersion for new, young and graduate employees, specifically marketing, market access, competitive intelligence and other commercial functions. A great place to start your career. Be sure to have an Ivy League MBA though. Competitive remuneration. A truly global environment.

    Cons

    Top heavy - too many chiefs (VPs) Not progressive enough for a biotech/Pharma company. Things happen too little/slowly, too late. Progression should not be driven by outside pressure. Strong political influence.

    Pros

    For interns they arrange many activities and seminars, where you can learn about industry.

    Cons

    You work under manager, so won't get chance to work in team or collaborate with other team members.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Celgene full-time for more than 5 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.
