Poor Management and lack of collaborative science work
Senior Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAOctober 19, 2017
The worst position I have in 13 years in the industry. Culture is poor, people do not communicate. Tremendous amount of work is expected for low pay. It is basically a glorified sweat shop.
Pros
Talks given by KOL
Cons
Salary, management, culture between colleagues.

Large company with a small company feel when I was there
Associate Scientist (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 12, 2017
Celgene had a small company feel but as they grew they lost that feeling. The management restructured into smaller project groups and really deflated the culture. A lot of the people who work there are not happy but they are afraid to leave because they are getting rich off the stock.
Pros
free lunches, flexible hours
Cons
restructure and the culture; not much discovery done in house, advancement is very difficult

Data Entry Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Summit, NJOctober 7, 2017
On a typical day at work can be a relaxed day if management did not watching your every moved. its very uncomfortable. Not the entire company like this. When you are a contract person, you feel uncomfortable and not treated the same as the permanent employees.

Tradeoffs
Director in IT (Current Employee) –  Summit, NJSeptember 27, 2017
Very little provisions for maternity care for this type of company
Very little support in the healthcare plans for infertility (IVF, etc). This is not a company to work for if you have that issue.
Paid time off is limited
Salary and compensation is great
Some great managers; however othersble to get away with behaviors you wouldn't expect at large corporations
If the company drove towards a work from home culture it would tremendously improve morale; however in a lot of ways it is the opposite

Lab Services Associate (Current Employee) –  Summit, NJJuly 28, 2017
Certain Managers love to micro manage. If you can put up with this, then it should be no problem. You just need alot of patience. Do you job to the best of your ability and don't take anything personal.
