      Change is the only constant

      Pros

      Good pipeline and dynamic environment. People are working really hard here and do care about generating innovative drugs for patients

      Cons

      It's a revolving door with constant turnover which can make it difficult to get things done. However, plenty of people thrive in this environment and see change as an opportunity. There are lingering effects of celgene integration, but this is very different from department to department and team to team.

      R and D talent in lab no longer valued.

      Pros

      BMS was a stable company to work for.

      Cons

      They introduced a new career ladder for R and ED vs keeping the hBMS or hCelgene title and pay structures. Those at director and VP levels all maintained their titles and benefits at the detriment of those below. The hBMS tracks of research (PhD) and technical (MS/BS) were merged with people now having drastically different responsibilities and expectations for the same job titles. Even worse they compressed several laboratory titles into one, thus taking away or making meaningless some promotions. The new system also has not equalized pay between the departments let alone hCelgene vs hBMS to each other claiming “market rate”adjustments.
