Featured Review

I worked at Celgene

Pros

Good company values, friendly atmosphere

Cons

Several managers have been promoted too soon leading to people in management that do not understand the area they are managing.

Advice to Management

Review your promotion procedures. Promotion should be based on merit, not tenure. Promote those that work hard, not just say they work hard!

Former Employee - Sales Force Effectiveness Manager

I worked at Biogen full-time

Pros

Great culture, great salary, great bonuses and other incentives

Cons

At times there are political plays over ownership of various tasks and projects. Some employees will try and position themselves as leaders of these projects at the expense of colleagues.

Advice to Management

Focus on the benefits each employee brings to the company at all times.
