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

    Pros

    Really focuses on the patient and its not just lip service. Employees and coworkers are great, people respect each other, and pretty modern facilities with nice comp and benefits.

    Cons

    There's a lot of "alignment" and all that technical talk which really means there's a lot of politics, but that's partly a necessary evil when you have so many layers in an org.

    Advice to Management

    Relax a bit with all the diversity talk, people forget they have an actual job to do when everything is just focused on diversity goals instead of executing on a long term commercial strategy.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bristol-Myers Squibb (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Met hiring manager at hotel in atrium for interview following an in-depth phone screening regarding my past experiences in pharmaceutical sales. The interview was about an hour and fairly formal. They appeared to be looking for a lot of tenacity, existing relationships to sell a challenging product.
