By keeping the patients in mind from the start, we are able to achieve brave, innovative, and transformational outcomes. Beyond the work environment, our employees also devote their personal time to supporting patient advocacy groups and voluntary health associations. It’s who we are.

Benefits for Employees.
We’ve always been focused on changing the lives of our patients. But we know it’s just as important to help our employees live their best lives. Our benefits are based on real conversations with our people about what they need, what they want, and what we can provide. The result is a comprehensive list that landed us on Forbes’ list of Top 10 Places to Work Worldwide. See why for yourself.
Learning and Development
We believe in setting up our employees for success, through continuous learning and professional development opportunities and exposure to all levels of leadership. From tools and training to tuition reimbursement, we support your desire for continuous learning and growth to help you achieve your goals.
We know family comes first. That’s why we provide eligible employees with 12 weeks of paid time off to care for a newly born infant or new adopted or foster child. U.S. employees can also enjoy a “bridge back,” working part-time for four weeks with full-time pay.
As a company focused on improving the lives of patients, we recognize that our employees can be caregivers too. So, if a family member is diagnosed with a serious illness, eligible employees may take up to six weeks paid time off to act as a caregiver to their loved one.
Elder and Childcare Assistance
Celgene wants to show support for those things in life you can’t predict. That’s why, if your primary source of care for a child or elder family member falls through, we can provide secondary care.
Additional Maternity Assistance
Becoming a parent comes with a new set of challenges. As part of our benefits, Celgene offers additional maternity care including nutrition, lactation counseling, and the ability to ship frozen breast milk home if travelling for business.
Flexible and Summer Hours
To help balance the demands of career, family, and home life, Celgene offers the Flexible Work Arrangement, enabling employees to perform some duties remotely, as well as summer hours on Fridays for eligible employees.
Celgene’s investment in our employees extends to their health and well-being. That’s why we offer a number of healthy living programs, including nutritious food and exercise programs, wellness centers, and counseling opportunities.
