    Pros

    BMS is a solid company with a good pipeline. Good salaries for administrative staff. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Company more interested in paying higher dividends to shareholders than in employees. Although company promises work-life balance, it depends on supervisor/management team and department. Company expects to do more work with fewer employees so workload often overwhelming. No recourse available if manager’s assessment is wrong or unfair. Yearly performance evaluation not always fair/managers not required to contact feedback providers or consider their evaluations. Hire temps instead of increasing permanent staff – don’t see hidden costs in employee turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to ensure employee evaluations are fair. Promote work-life balance in practice to managers. Evaluate employee workload fairly and hire more employees where needed.

    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.
