Associate (Former Employee) – Township of Warren, NJ – June 6, 2018
Great managers, great work environment if you are in the right department. Office politics are always going to be a problem but if you don't make friends and just keep to yourself you will be just fine.
Director (Former Employee) – Summit, NJ – May 24, 2018
I had the greatest opportunities in my career at Celgene. I am fortunate to have been able to join at a time when the company was just growing. I was able to learn from some of the best mentors. Management was very good to the employees. Allthough Celgene never really shuts down their computers or mobile phones and its business around the clock. That was the hardest thing about the job, not having a work life balance due to the amount of work. However, it was good compensation and job security.
Research Associate (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 18, 2018
If you enjoy a fast-paced environment where the direction from upper management is always changing then you would enjoy working here. There is not much of a work-life balance. There is also little room for upward advancement. The people are nice.
IT Asset and Configuration Process Owner (Current Employee) – Summit, NJ – May 17, 2018
Company has a lot of politics which impacts progress. To many areas that do not see the bigger picture and makes it harder to make a change. Management focuses on trying to survive instead of innovation.
Sr. Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Summit, NJ – May 6, 2018
Communication skills, more transparency between managers and subordinates. More Community volunteer work. Mandatory Training for admins. Working from home opportunities for all employees. Christmas week closures.
A decent place to work; however, they tend to promote people into positions with no prior experience. I guess some people are considered to show potential while others, who demonstrate superior skills and experience, get left behind.
Senior Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) – Township of Warren, NJ – March 30, 2018
Celgene is a great company to work for. However, as in most corporate jobs, remember not to get lost in the administrative shuffle. People will have you training your next manager or director, while you stay at the bottom rungs of the ladder.
Management (Former Employee) – Summit, NJ – March 27, 2018
Celgene used to have a innovative and collaborative culture where everyone worked together to make the company successful. Now with an influx of new people and a very poorly run HR department the culture has shifted to one where everyone is watching their back and many people are jumping ship to go to better run companies where you don't need to put in 60 hours per week.
Global Quality System Document Coordinator (Former Employee) – Melrose Park, IL – March 22, 2018
Celgene's ability to allow its employees to grow and learn so they can move into other roles and advance is remarkable. They provide a career ladder so no employee is left behind or wonder what they will have to do to get to the next level
Contract Document Coordinator (Current Employee) – Berkeley Heights, NJ – February 15, 2018
My typical day is working on site contracts. I have learned that no sites are the same when negotiating. I think the hardest part of my job is that I wear different hats. I can be doing a CDA for outsourcing and then be negotiating a contract for a site.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Berkeley Heights, NJ – February 12, 2018
Learned the contract process management Workplace environment was very collaborative Typical Day at Work was handling meeting schedule, logistics and responding to meeting updates People were fantastic to work with

Innovation leads to the discovery and development of therapies that save and extend lives — the primary goal of any healthcare program. And by doing that, innovation helps keep healthcare costs down and drives economic growth.
Thanks to medical innovation patients are living longer, healthier, more productive lives, a benefit that extends across the entire healthcare ecosystem to society as a whole. Simply put, the longer one lives, the more time they have to be productive and contribute to their families and society.
Senior Doc Specialist - Nonclinical/Early Drug Dev (Former Employee) – Summit, NJ – January 31, 2018
Celgene provides advancement opportunities like no other company I've worked for. They care about their employee's happiness and want to ensure there is a good work/life balance. It's hard to get in, but it's great to work there.
