I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

HR has a true business partner relationship with management. HR has a significant presence and can impact the business working with their client group management team. Talented and intelligent work force and HR organization.

Cons

When recognition is based on sizzle vs. substance it is frustrating and demoralizing. Rather than promote from within, hiring 'new' and 'better' is also bad for moral.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support and promote individuals who consistently deliver results instead of rewarding people who supposedly think strategically but can not deliver.

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

    Pros

    Rewarding work, excellent compensation, good work/life balance, innovative environment, quality co-workers, and unparalleled pay-for-performance bonuses.

    Cons

    As with most companies, promotions are still mostly decided by networking and not competency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to prevent your superstars from leaving, make the promotion process more transparent. The Old Boys Club might have been acceptable in the 50's, but it's 2012.
