    Pros

    The company has great benefits and if you are ok to go with the status quo in a very mundane environment then give it a go.

    Cons

    Disjointed and erratic work environment. Given objectives and mandates with no budget or support to meet these requests. A whole lot of fancy dancing and finger pointing to shift blame for poor sales and P&L concerns. They had an easy ride with great drugs and are now trying to be "No 1 in Diabetes with two lame oral products for Type II Diabetes; just a bit unrealistic and arrogant.

    Advice to Management

    Get s grip on reality, make solid and clear decision and reward those who work and move the rest along. there is no slack to support groups of people sitting around doing nothing but waiting for their product line to require work. Multiple product accountability for what you have in line is a great money saving opportunity for you and you are missing it. Be careful who's toes you step on it will come back to bite you.

    Pros

    Bar is low, so easy to deliver. Build a process or fill out a template, and you are all set. All the right things are in place to make BMS great...

    Cons

    ....but something is missing to bring that to fruition. Seems like everyone is just checking boxes rather than delivering top quality and with passion. Checking a box and building yet another process/template is what is rewarded. Seems like the company is stuck in 1990. Never heard "no" or "that's not the process" so many times.
