Strong collaboration between groups (I noticed at a training seminar how rare this is at other companies, but seems commonplace at BMS)

Daily reminders on who we really work for...the patient!
I love working here...there is a true sense of pride every morning I drive by that BMS sign.

Always busy (this isn't a true negative, but it does make focusing time on novel projects or new technologies a lesson in time management)
Advice to Management
Keep the focus on the patient and your employees and you will keep your loyal family.
