    I have been working at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time

    Pros

    Company provides lots of responsibility and flexibility, and is very much a mission driven enterprise. Colleagues are smart and collegial.

    Cons

    The law organization is spread out and communication between departments could be improved somewhat. The company is transforming and has some growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries and benefits need to be benchmarked against the market. Non-financial recognition is good, and the emphasis on integrity is appreciated.
