    Pros

    Strong collaboration between groups (I noticed at a training seminar how rare this is at other companies, but seems commonplace at BMS)
    Boston grade pay but cheaper cost of living in Devens without the horrible daily commute into Boston
    Bonus payout was great last year
    Phenomenal pipeline in many diseases and leader in immuno-oncology
    Management and senior management that seems to truly care about the individual
    Daily reminders on who we really work for...the patient!
    Great co-workers
    Work/life balance
    I love working here...there is a true sense of pride every morning I drive by that BMS sign.
    Was really impressed during my first couple of months here when we were short on hands and our Director came and helped out in the lab for a couple hours. Love that when our VP visits, he not only inspects the lab, but goes into drawers and asks questions about what people are working on (I appreciate they get involved).

    Cons

    They could open up something in the Southeast so I can get away from these winters :)
    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.
