    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.

    Insecure Management

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some nice colleagues in departments, come from other big companies

    Cons

    Insecurity on Management lead to fast decisions that keep change every other day, they keep talking about other thinks that are affecting them with the merger and how good is their culture ! themselves they bought dozens of smaller companies over the Years..., but they never improve the current processes that are very outdated lengthy and unnecessary, their own insecurity for the job that enjoy fro the last 10 Years or more is supposed to be your problem. To many meetings and no actions. The good people leaving or pushed out and the gossip ones are the favourites to stay. Workload is all over the place and not distributed evenly, if you are a favourite you can go home early, or work from home....US colleagues consider to have priority in everything, to many directors but they never buy new software....

    Pros

    Celgene is a nice place to work. All of the people are nice and very friendly. I look forward to going to work each day.

    Cons

    The company has a soda machine on each floor, which just leads to unhealthy habits for the employees. Not happy about that.

    Pros

    You get to work from home some day. You get to speak with different types of people and help people with life saving medication.

    Cons

    Very high call volume. As a contract employee you also do not get any paid days off and can be let go at any moment.

    Slave mentality

    Pros

    Nice People working there. Benefits are good

    Cons

    Worst management team in most departments. The Company grew very fast and they were not able to train good managers. Just because you are good at your job does not make you a good manager of people. The Managers treat lower staff like slaves in a factory. 100% is not good enough, you need to give 200%. Work life balance was the worst.
