    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Celgene full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible hour & holiday pay.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance. Even on a holiday work phone is ringing & expect to answering emails too. No career progression. Can dedicate many year & performing same still? Poor management. Appraisal target is a too easy, why no challenge? Is it leading to a low job satisfaction. No support in crisis times, when a thing goes wrong It is no effective team playing if not everyone is helping. It is not a place it once was, too high turnover.
