I worked at Adnexus, a Bristol-Myers Squibb R&D Co. as a contractor (Less than a year)
In short, this place cares about you as a person. Period. The people are incredibly nice, the atmosphere is relaxed, and there are so many great little perks. Food is plentiful. Lots of team events. Overall just a positive vibe.
On the way out, Bristol-Myers had started to apply their own internal politics to the scene. This led to many people getting let go that really brought the place to life. In addition, as a contractor looking to go perm, it became clear a few months in that going full-time would never happen which what sealed my fate there.
Advice to Management
Fight off Bristol-Myers policies with all your might!
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adnexus, a Bristol-Myers Squibb R&D Co. (Waltham, MA) in September 2009.
One interview but the people are so nice.
No negotiations allowed out of school.
