I have been working at Celgene full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Celgene has never had layoffs due to economy, stock continues to climb, pay is good, and the extras - especially the stock options - are great.

Cons

As others have said, there's a bit of the 'old boy network' here, especially at the headquarters in Summit. Depending on the department you are in and the level you are at, there's not always room for promotions and career growth.

    I have been working at Celgene full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job stability, stock options, steady paycheck

    Cons

    Limited professional growth, poor management. They are quick to justify resources at higher management levels and leave all the burden and add more work at lower level people becasue they get either less or no resistance.

    Advice to Management

    Please open your eyes, and re-assess how resources are being abused to satify some managers egos, they are just out there to build empires. Hard workig people get no recognition, because they are not management, this will have tremendous impact on morale.

    I worked at Celgene full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Although I didn't work for this company that long, it seems as though they may pay their employees pretty decently.

    Cons

    I can't really give any cons because I didn't work with them that long after the purchased the company that I had been working for for 6 years. If they want you, they want you and if they don't, they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Past employees shouldn't be denied applying for positions within the company.
