Former Employee - Research Scientist I in Princeton, NJ

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

Pros

This is a well managed company in terms of benefits, good pay, and believes in buying high quality equipment for the benefit of the scientist. The work life balance is excellent, and most people are caring.

Cons

The company senior managers are extremely driven and when I was there were more concerned with what other peer companies were working on instead of driving their internal science programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust you scientist and listen to their ideas and stop looking over your shoulder at your peers. Believe in your own people and you will reap the rewards.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing Specialist in Devens, MA

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

    Pros

    Good vacation allowance and sick time, good 401K match -100% to 6%. Northeast Site (Devens) is in nice location, right off highway. Coworkers are generally good to work with, although some moral boosting would do all well. Company is investing in site and has a bright future.

    Cons

    Typical corporate crap - bonus way below what it should have been given recent stock price jump. Upper site management sometimes aloof of realities in Manufacturing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding upper management personnel with 6 figure salaries who are useless and add nothing of value and instead take some of that money and pay the people actually doing good work in the Manufacturing side!
