Since its inception, Celgene Corporation has devoted itself to creating medications that improve the quality of life and prolong the life expectancy for people who suffer from chronic disease. The company conducts multiple clinical trials each year and has proved extraordinarily successful at obtaining FDA and EMA approval for its various products. One of its drugs, Revlimid (generic name lenalidomide) requires such special handling that it has its own dedicated pharmacy (RevAssist) to ensure proper treatment for patients. Many of its efforts focus on multiple mylenoma, a rare form of bone marrow cancer that can cause extreme chronic pain. Celgene Corporation also creates drugs as alternatives for patients whose prior therapies proved unsuccessful.
Employees at Celgene Corporation have access to a wide range of benefits, including insurance, retirement plans, and paid vacation. The company is devoted to promoting work-life balance among its work force, which means that employees are encouraged to maintain active personal lives outside the office so they can devote more energy and effort into their work when they come into the office or lab.
Employees report that they are satisfied with the benefits that Celgene Corporation offers. They complain about the "small biotech" culture's ongoing metamorphosis into a more "big pharma" atmosphere, but they also praise the stock options programs, knowledgeable coworkers, generous bonuses, and "small company culture." Employees report that superiors encourage collaboration and reward hard work. – less
