    I worked at Medarex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, the people were wonderful to work with. Small company, which gave it a family-like atmosphere. Nice stock option incentives.

    Cons

    Salaries on the low side compared to the rest of NJ. Management tended to be a bit too degree-focused. Not a lot of promotion from within.

    Advice to Management

    Focus attempts to promote from within in order to empower employees. No one knows your products better than current employees, thus there is less of a learning curve than when managers are brought in from outside.

    The level of scientific expertise exceeded large biotech companies.

    Pros

    Medarex Princeton has an extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. The employees are very passionate about what the company is trying to accomplish.

    Cons

    Bristol Myers' buyout has completely changed everything. Before the buyout this was the perfect place to work. Many of the employees are very upset about the buyout.

    Advice to Management

    Try to go back to the core values and procedures of before the buyout. Work with medarex as a small subdivision of BMS as opposed to another section of the huge company.

    Pros

    great pipeline in biotechnology products

    CEO that sold us out to a "partner"

    Advice to Management

    Try to be honest with your next company's employees and tell them you are there to sell them and enrich yourself.
