Benefits

Celgene employees enjoy a high level of benefits — befitting our most important resource. These benefits include opportunities for professional development and a wide range of wellness options.


Continuous Learning and Professional Development

Our success in achieving business objectives depends on the contributions of each employee. We’re committed to the professional and managerial development of all employees to meet both the changing demands of their positions and to help them achieve their personal and professional goals. These principles guide our employee development efforts:

  • Managers must know the capabilities and aspirations of their people.
  • Job assignments are used to develop our leadership and drive business growth.
  • Feedback and rewards reinforce performance and developmental messages.
  • Development occurs throughout one’s career and occurs company-wide.
  • Managers are accountable for the vitality and diversity of leadership depth.

We encourage employees to take part in courses of study that enhance their general development and support continuous learning and professional development. This supports our philosophy of learning and development by advancing employees’ personal and technical development to help them achieve individual goals and corporate objectives.

Professional development opportunities also contribute to enabling employees to incorporate Celgene’s “Leadership Success Behaviors” — five practices of individuals who produce exceptional results — into everyday operations. In addition to formal leadership development programs, there are numerous tools available to help employees envision and plan for rewarding careers at Celgene. For example, My Career Profile is a robust career development tool that enables employees to consolidate their experiences and career aspirations in one place to facilitate employee and manager career discussions, allowing us to match our talent with the experiences and career opportunities that correspond to employees’ strengths and business needs.


Wellness Options

Celgene’s investment in employees extends to their health and well-being. That’s why Celgene offers a number of healthy living programs, services, and educational opportunities. These opportunities include healthy food and exercise programs, and health programs both in the US and internationally.


Healthy Food and Exercise Programs in the US

Health club reimbursement is available to eligible employees in the US and Europe. Fitness centers and group fitness classes are available at certain Celgene facilities, and certified fitness professionals are on staff at certain US Celgene facilities. In the US, we offer programs to support employees’ efforts to improve their health.

  • Healthy food alternatives are provided in workspaces and at meetings where Celgene extends cafeteria services.
  • US-based national webinars are offered that focus on various topics including organic foods, healthy heart programs, stress reduction, and the flu season.
  • We provide support for soccer, softball, and other teams of employees that participate in local and community sporting leagues.
  • On-site educational tables at select US locations cover topics such as anti- inflammatory diet, healthy eating on-the-go, and “ask the exercise specialist.”
  • There are on-site nurse practitioners at select US locations.

Company culture

Company has grown way too quickly. Management no longer cares about its employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Please take a look at level of management below the c suite. Just because they've been employed a long time doesn't mean they are effective managers. Many haven't grown with the company and need to be replaced.

What I like about the company

Competitive compensation and great benefits.

What I dislike about the company

Toxic environment. Most employees unhappy but do not have an objective outlet for complaints.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be more engaging and give feedback to your resources. Don't expect things to just happen the day before the deadline.

What I like about the company

Good facilities at a nice location. The company has been increasing its market share with several hallmark products and made record profits.

What I dislike about the company

Senior management not living up to company values. Leaders are weak and unwilling to engage. There is way too much politics going on which is highly detrimental to the culture. Lack of accountability runs amuck and a lot of blaming and finger pointing from those who have been in the same position far too long.
