I have been working at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-Work life balance (summer Fridays, working from home, flexible scheduling)
- Good compensation
- Special projects
- Ability to move around and stay with the company

Cons

- Hard to get promoted despite great performance reviews
- Lots of outsourcing
- Constantly changing business strategy without letting the dust settle
- Despite trying to be agile, the company has a long way to go
- Too many meetings lead to not enough time to innovate

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Keep talent in house vs. outsourcing everything
- Let the dust settle before making decisions which impact the field and back office
- There are lots of dead weight in senior positions in the company. Identify where the productivity is really happening.

    I have been working at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, great work/life balance, understanding leadership, continuous improvement in all areas.

    Cons

    The pharmaceutical industry in general is demanding. I've had to come in on multiple weekends and holidays, but with the economy being the way it is, I'm more than willing to work a little more in order to hold a stable job. The cafeteria in Mt. Vernon is outsourced to Sodexo, which charges an arm and a leg for a sub-par meal. Thankfully, there are some good food choices down the road, or just bring your lunch. No big deal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep employees a little more informed. There is a lot of information that does not get relayed to employees in the manufacturing areas.
