I recommend working here because the company is generous with compensation. The drug discovery projects are well staffed and financed. Money is not an issue for this company.

The new facility looks promising
LAB ASSISTANTANT (Former Employee) –  La Jolla, CAOctober 25, 2015
although the company is good, the compensation and job security are certainly not the priority. The manager sometimes is a hit or miss depending on your department

Great for individual contributors only
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 19, 2016
Great pay and benefits. Few opportunities for professional growth and development. If you enjoy being an individual contributor and have no particular ambition or desire to advance and progress upward, Celgene may be a good fit. Otherwise, not a great organization.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
Lack of upward mobility, few advancement opportunities, poor development planning

Very good company to work, every one in company are very supportive.I only wish the pay was a bit higher. Because of this, I doubt if I will be able to work here for very long. But for the time being, I'm enjoying learning new things and picking up a few skills.

productive and nice place to work
Tableau Developer (Current Employee) –  Warren County, NJAugust 18, 2016
There are lots of opportunities available.
They also care about their employees and I have seen them try very hard to place everyone in a department that was disbanded.

Promise a lot, but nothing is true
Finance (Former Employee) –  Berkley Heights, NJMay 7, 2013
They promise a lot, but first the 401K, for the first 4 years you can only put your money into their own stock(all your eggs in one basket). Second the finance/shared services group only care about what you have done for me today. Managers are not involved in the day to day and when asked questions get input from their employees then pass off the answer as their own. They also do not work with you to learn their system... They expect you to know their way of doing things or you not good enough.

HR is not interested in your problem, only what their managers tell them. Problem is their managers don't know what they are doing. They have a lot of advancement, problem with that is then you have people that don't know what they are doing in charge.

They tell you that you can make 150% of your bonus, but they never pay it.
Cons
everything
