    Celgene Cambridge

    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.

    Great company but too political

    Mar 28, 2016 - Product Manager in Summit, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Compensation, culture, smart people, growing organization/energy, multiple products. Restricted stock units! Overall, good culture, energy, and work environment. Lean organization so opportunity to take on more work and learn faster

    Cons

    Slowly becoming big pharma/hierarchical. Career progression can be hit or miss depending on political standing within organization. Depends on how much superiors with political capital 'advocate' for you. Some deserving people are passed over for promotions because of favoritism and inconsistency across the organization.

    Not What it Was

    Jun 25, 2018 - Director in Berkeley Heights, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pipeline is promising if they can pull it off. Those coming in now may be financially rewarded if there is success. Culture of bringing in at higher levels from the outside so if you join new there is opportunity.

    Cons

    Alles just figured out that management has to manage to avoid disasters like the FDA failure to file letter. Employees who have been there for more than five years have all option grants underwater, everything granted since 2012 is worthless, motivation shot. Company President, General Counsel, Business Development leadership, more, all gone. Stockholders meeting a joke, Board obviously did not care.

    summer internship experience

    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

    The people are great, and it's a wonderful working environment. Compensation is great, and they offer stock options. It's a company that is doing well despite the awful economy.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity for advancement for an administrative assistant.

    Autonomy and dynamic pace make Celgene an entrepreneurial place. Plenty of opportunity to contribute.
