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.

Clinical Data Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCSeptember 29, 2017

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

Overall a great place to work.
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.

Facilities Technician (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJuly 18, 2017
Showing up to work here, you can feel the happiness off of every employee in the building. A typical day consisted of helping others with any orders they had and fixing any equipment that needed tending to. Would highly recommend this company!
