      Painful Mergers

      Pros

      Exciting novel cell therapy experience. Exposure to multiple platforms and processes (manufacturing, analytical, raw materials,etc.). Fun work functions and lunches to make up for constantly working ridiculous hours.

      Cons

      The changes across the mergers (Juno to Celgene to BMS) that would impact employee’s career progression were very poorly communicated even at the managerial level. Everything is treated like an emergency; leads to rushed work that ultimately isn’t necessary or has to be repeated. Poor work life balance.

      Pros

      Collaborative, friendly culture, pragmatic, good work life balance, approachable top management (Celgene)

      Pros

      Flexible hour & holiday pay.

      Cons

      Poor work-life balance. Even on a holiday work phone is ringing & expect to answering emails too. No career progression. Can dedicate many year & performing same still? Poor management. Appraisal target is a too easy, why no challenge? Is it leading to a low job satisfaction. No support in crisis times, when a thing goes wrong It is no effective team playing if not everyone is helping. It is not a place it once was, too high turnover.
