    Pros

    The company has great benefits and if you are ok to go with the status quo in a very mundane environment then give it a go.

    Cons

    Disjointed and erratic work environment. Given objectives and mandates with no budget or support to meet these requests. A whole lot of fancy dancing and finger pointing to shift blame for poor sales and P&L concerns. They had an easy ride with great drugs and are now trying to be "No 1 in Diabetes with two lame oral products for Type II Diabetes; just a bit unrealistic and arrogant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get s grip on reality, make solid and clear decision and reward those who work and move the rest along. there is no slack to support groups of people sitting around doing nothing but waiting for their product line to require work. Multiple product accountability for what you have in line is a great money saving opportunity for you and you are missing it. Be careful who's toes you step on it will come back to bite you.

    I have been working at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice people, nice places. A good environment for "hands-on" people. Managerial growth is supported.

    Cons

    Politics, so many people leave the company. Limited, not supported scientific research in most of the R&D departments. Creativity is considered a sin. The worst place to go for a scientific career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be much more open to the scientific community.
