    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Celgene full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, flexible hours, and a lot of opportunities to move up within the organization

    Cons

    There is a stagnant mentality that you have to pay your dues within the industry to move up, which inherently undervalues your external dynamic experiences and soft skills.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees' overall experiences and talents.

    I have been working at Celgene full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Rewarding area and good company portfolio

    Cons

    Upper management very poor in their people skills and leadership. Very tight group of original people who are passive aggressive in their behaviour and non-inclusive.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more diversity of thinking and style and accept and embrace these different styles. Be more open and inclusive. You are driving your employees to high stress levels and very poor work-life balance.
