    decent, professional place to work

    Mar 14, 2019 - Scientist I in Summit, NJ

    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.

    Mixed Bag

    Pros

    They take care of you financially - great perks and benefits and nice office facilities.

    Cons

    Seems like changes occur only because things have been the same for a while, not because there is a need for change. Also there are major cultural issues in accounting/finance/IA that create a toxic environment. For those thinking of joining IA, only join if you enjoy the big 4 nature of auditing because the only benefit you will get of going private here is a little more work life balance.

    Pros

    Everyone at Celgene is very relaxed and laid back, while work is a priority it is not brought home at all. Salary and benefit packages are great

    Cons

    Cons include a lack of work resulting in boredom, and since it is such a large company finding ways to venture to other positions or departments can be difficult

    Getting more like a big pharma rather than biotech in recent 2 yrs

    Pros

    Stock option. RSU. 401(K) match is similar to any other pharma but in form of com stock. generous health care, prescription drug benefit.

    Cons

    Recent 2 years, the company was undergoing tremendous culture change. The management team should know it and prob heard old folks talking quite a bit. In one sentence, Celg is more like 2 big pharma at Kenilworth, NJ (both 10 yr ago and now) rather than a biotech at Summit, NJ 10 yr ago. Go figure out who they are!

    Good Company but it depends on which Department you work for

    Pros

    Good Company overall but it depends on which department and manager you work for . Good pay & benefit.

    Cons

    -I worked for Celgene over 3 years , its a good company to work for but unfortunately I worked in Corporate Accounting which it runs by Mr. right who surrounded himself with bunch of yes men. There are so much Favoritism, politics , double standard and discrimination especially against older employee in that department. He appointed some incompetent middle managers who don't have the minimum skills to manage and don't even know what they are managing . - I would say in my career I have not seen a manager as horrible as my former manager. She micromanaged and wants to control everything
