    Celgene is a wonderful company.

    The good: Decent base, great bonus if you are in the top third and regular equity awards. The stock has suffered the past year so you will probably get good strike prices for the foreseeable future and the stock is on the uptick. Only 1 meeting a year and the sales director knows how to run meetings for the reps benefit, not all the cubicle warriors from New Jersey. There aren't a lot of time wasting teleconferences. Great car choices. Basically every payer in California prefers Otezla.

    The bad: you will spend hours on the help desk because to do the training, your benefits, and basically anything with IT, it can't easily be done on an IPAD and for some reason, I&I doesn't get a lap top. The bonus is volume based, so some territories will never compete. The division has no product pipeline for dermatology so you will have a 5 year old product with absolutely no new data. They still believe in speaker programs, even though attendees are all nurses. The expense reporting is a nightmare, so its better just to do snacks and forfeit all lunches.

    I don't know about the manager. I am on the east coast and my manger is great.

    This is all true, great company! But the really good news is Santa Monica was a awesome territory! So you’ll walk into good bonus and ranking.
