    I have been working at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time for 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.

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

    Pros

    At some point the company delivers value/hope to patients. You get to put another known name on your resume.

    Cons

    Systems and thinking are from the 1950's; incestuous, passive aggressive and old boy's network culture; extremely risk adverse which makes it impossible to actually get anything done. Everything needs a committee with multiple reviews and rehashing of the same topics...I've watched paint dry faster than it takes to make one simple decision at BMS. If you haven't been there for 20 years, it's very difficult to break in and forget about getting promoted. Women and minorities are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice for the BOD and shareholders....level the place and start over.
