    I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. good and friendly people from reception/catering staff to senior management. It is a nice feeling when you turn up to work (good location).

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, complex SOPs, workloads, lack of innovation contribute to low morale among employees. Managers need to understand their line-reports and their needs and work together as a teams. Cutting down on workload than the headcount would be the way to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your biggest asset is the quality of talent that you employ so, please make efforts to retain them. The American hire&fire mentality has got to go.

    Pros

    Good training, great access to resources, annual pay rises, bonuses.

    Cons

    American stone age style of time administration, missed time deducted from holidays not from pay with no chance of regaining time, first two hours of any overtime is given free to the company. no Time In Lue. A feeling of low morale in all locations. Outsourcing currently pandemic in most departments. Unions are forbidden in new sites and are being phased out of existing sites, except of course in France.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of this stone age American time managment, we are all big boys now. Stop all this outsourcing nonsense currently going on. Its affecting the quality of the product and morale.
