    Pros

    Overall compensation package is decent. Benefit is comprehensive. People are respectful. Managers are reasonable. Career development is promising. Professional working environment. Good science and project management. Work/life balance is valued.

    I have been working at Celgene full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Full experiential immersion for new, young and graduate employees, specifically marketing, market access, competitive intelligence and other commercial functions. A great place to start your career. Be sure to have an Ivy League MBA though.

    Competitive remuneration.

    A truly global environment.

    Cons

    Top heavy - too many chiefs (VPs)

    Not progressive enough for a biotech/Pharma company. Things happen too little/slowly, too late. Progression should not be driven by outside pressure.

    Strong political influence.

    I have been working at Celgene full-time (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.
