Does Bristol Myers Squibb offer massages?

Pros

Big on diversity including a "People Resource Group" for every population- people with disabilities, women, women with children, LGBT, people of color and putting a lot of funding for company sponsored events by those groups.

Cons

Because of acquisitions of other companies, there is little to no planning on revised processes and procedures. So what worked last week doesn't necessarily work this week. Managers and employees are left to their own devices to figure out how to do something. Which then holds everything up, sometimes for weeks on end. Ending the subsidized lunches because the pandemic is ending. As restaurants ore opening again. When many other other companies have some kind of subsidized or free meals as a perk to attract candidates.Or many of the workforce (about 40%) are contractors, so no benefits, vacation, PTO. And no ability to contribute to company sanctioned non profits for matching funds. Which is just another reminder that as contractors, we are just less than..And when a new contractor takes over, update your resume, because likely they will start laying people off to maximize profits. As soon as I find another job, I am outta here. as a colleague said to me on his last day, "Good luck, you're going to need it."

Advice to Management

Stop thinking you are saving money and absolving your selves of any responsibilities just because a large percentage of your employees are contractors. In an environment where companies are complaining about a shortage of candidates, not a good look.
