A mixed bag.

I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time for more than 8 years

ProsNice working environment as far as the workforce in general, which tends to be very professional and culturally diverse. Compensation and benefits are competitive as is work/life balance overall.

ConsFrequent organizational restructuring creates chaos and undermines morale. Employees are viewed as disposable. There is very little opportunity to advance career-wise.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider the true costs of chronic restructuring.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I was over-stressed and dissatisfied. No room for advancement.

I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb

ProsI liked that they provided amenities such as a daycare on premises; Gym, etc. The cafeteria is fairly decent as well. Office spaces are much better than some of the other companies. Laxed dress code was also much appreciated.

ConsThere was a lot of nepotism--it didn't matter how hard you worked but the promotions and raises were always given to the favorites. It became increasingly demotivating to work in an environment like that. There also wasn't much flexibility to have a better work-life balance, even though this was emphasized by the company on paper. At the end it felt like the negatives outweighed the positives.

Advice to Senior ManagementHiring should be done on the basis of merit as well as personality. There should be zero tolerance for nepotism. There should be a better career plan for employees.
