I have been working at Celgene full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Probably the best employer for ensuring that you maintain the work-life balance. Work is constant and aggressive, but also still a learning experience as they aren't regimented in their ways.... yet.

Cons

"Still a learning experience" (mentioned above) = can be arduous to establish processes and standards

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Celgene is because of the amicable atmosphere at their Cellular Therapy site. Another good reason would be the stock options as part of its compensation for FT employees. Biotechnology & stem cells is an advancing and a novel field to work in, and Celgene is one of the leading pioneers.

    Cons

    There were a few cons however - the company likes to keep a lot of contractors, this creates some trepidation over job security. Sometimes, you are stuck with projects you dislike while others get easier, more fun projects to work on.

    Advice to Management

    Dont lose touch with lower level associates, these people are the building blocks of tomorrow!

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The stock price is going up

    Cons

    Complete managerial ineptitude. Layers and layers of bureaucracy.
    A glut of former "high powered" managers and directors that brought "Big Pharma" to an organization that isn't prepared to operate under "Big Models." Morale is non existant and as long as the stock price goes up, the issues go by the way side.

    Advice to Management

    Do an in-depth assessment of how your front line directors and managers treat their staff. You would be appalled to see how Celgene's name is becoming synonymous with "worst place to work."
