    I worked at Celgene full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Have stock option and the stock price is increasing 2. Good life work balance since no one desires to do extra 3. Good products to sell which benefits the patients

    Cons

    1. Yearly salary increment is less than inflation 2. Yearly incentive is less than 1 month bonus: Employee incentive plan 5% and sales/marketing incentive plan 12% 3. Less than 5% employee can have more than exceed expectation for yearly review. No encouragement for employee to do more than achieve expectation. 4. Hiring is person for the job or setting up job for the person especially for those that know the HR personnel 5. Cutting costs, headcounts and benefits of employees - where is the "Trust in your words and your actions"? 6. Layers of bureaucacy for decision making and asking to justify the obvious - where is the "Willing to face the challenges and the unknown"? 7. Retaliation from HR and management when employees are willing to be open to express their views and opinions which is different from management. 8. No career development plan or roadmap for employees. HR ask the employee to think of their own career roadmap, of course becomes employees think about where are other opportunities in other companies.

    I worked at Celgene full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Began working in the company late 2000, great leaders, the novel product then (Revlimid) and good stock option plans for employees. HQ and disease team leaders are easy to access and contact. An average american company level salaries, thus somewhat higher than in EU based companies.

    Cons

    10 years later, the stock price may tell the whole story, unfortunately. Under the ”new leadership”, the company was supposed to be one of key players in bowel disease, rheumatology and so on. Only Apremilast left. Patent cliff for all other products in next few coming years, revenue replacements products in the pipeline? Mongersen, several failed phase 3 studies, ozanimod data good enough? HR is serving only director level employees, others like working ants. No career opportunities outside HQ. Too many narrow minded, non-professional, mid-level managers who delegate everything to others or require frequent meetings with no relevant agendas.
