    Manager, R&D Strategy and Analytics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb (Princeton, NJ) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Initially, I had 2 phone screenings - 1 with HR and 1 with the hiring manager. After the screening, they invited me to participate in a full day of onsite interviews. Additionally, they gave me a case study and
    a writing sample to complete in advance.

    Everyone I interviewed with was nice and I received positive feedback, but unfortunately, things didn't work out for me. The only problem I had with the process was the poor communication of timelines. I was told that I would hear back from them with a decision within 10 days - that turned into 2 weeks, which turned into a month.

    It seemed as if my recruiter was left in the dark from a communication standpoint, and in turn, so was I. I found that part of the process to be terribly unprofessional, but I suspect that's the nature of the business, unfortunately.
