    Pros

    Great coworkers who really cared about getting things done right the first time. Management was involved and supportive when it came to key projects.

    Cons

    No clear path for growth within tech-ops. Collaboration between groups was often times poor resulting in double work or project delays.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on getting Tech-ops and Business side groups to work more closely. Provide clear paths for growth.

    Excellent colleagues, wonderful work environment, flexible hours and transparent and plain-spoken leadership.

    Honestly I can't think of anything right now. Maybe the traffic could be better, but I have flex time so not a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Thnank you! ...CEO visited the NACC in my first week!

    Pros

    Bristol Myers Squibb offers competitive salaries, strong benefits and a stable work environment. The senior leadership has a strong vision for the future and has built a strong culture.

    Cons

    Although it's still a good company to work for, it's no longer a great company to work for. Years of outsourcing have left current employees with very little mobility, either upwards or laterally.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better jobs tool, that would allow for employees greater flexibility for job switching, so that employees did not feel as though they were stagnating in their current roles.

    Pros

    BMS is one of the strongest pharmas right now, with an excellent pipeline and a lot of excitement about the company's future.

    Cons

    Like many other big pharmas, BMS leans heavily on acquisitions to sustain its pipeline. That means frequent re-organizations, layoffs, "strategic re-alignments," etc as the people at the top try to keep things from getting out of control. For most of the company, that means job stability is very tenuous, and internal research may not have time to come to fruition before yet another new visionary leader disrupts everything again. The impact on company culture and morale is significant.
