    Pros

    Energetic people, motivating culture, inspiring good leaders.

    Rather than recruiting freshers more and more, more specialised experts would be beneficial.

    Pros

    Honestly, Celltrion provides good enough salary and welfare compare to other average companies in South Korea. Good place to experience Global pharmaceutical work and might be helpful to experience various drug development related work and enhance your career.

    Cons

    Every working process are inefficient. Company is still young and have no efficient working system. Upper management people don't meet the expectations and are not qualified to follow the pace of growing. Upper management people are rude, emotional and not professional for managing projects as well as in terms of business.

    Not much

    Pros

    Status as a worldwide leader in monoclonal antibiody biosimilar development & commercialization makes it a great place for some unique experience. Founder and current Chairman/CEO is a visionary and he's had a great deal of luck that played in his favor but can't deny the fact that he led the company to where it is now. Company claims that salary and benefits are at the top of the industry but can't verify, although personally content with the current status as it is. Thrown right into the work itself so if you are motivated and dedicated, should help you grow professionally. Employees are generally younger than the average in other companies.

    Cons

    Seems to be led very much by one man only: not sure how the company will do if and when he no longer manages everything hands-on. Work hours got better but could do better by paying for overtime after 6pm. Workforce not yet stable an organization: lean management is good but the house needs to be in order to get stuff done. Company's stingy on training, makes some employees feel as if they are disposable. Could be wasting your time if working for "bad" supervisors. Aggressive goals sometimes makes you do things that are simply absurd. Wonder if some of the experience here will be relevant elsewhere in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Need to upgrade training program, support management training as there is absolutely none right now. Could dial back some goals, ambitions as they are straining the workforce, infrastructure too much right now.
