    Pros

    Good pay and benefits flexible schedules are available to support work/life balance, opportunities for advancement, good opportunities to attend industry conferences

    They do not value long-term employees or experienced professionals. There appears to be a ceiling once you hit 50 years old.

    Advice to Management

    leadership training would be invaluable

    Pros

    The pipeline is strong. Decision making is not as difficult as with other Big Pharma where I have worked previously.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is something that is not always emphasized by senior management. Senior leadership is very much into the details which can at times be an issue.

    Great culture and great managers. Absolutely Love working here. People have been here a long time and some leave and come back.

    I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Products, good compensation, talented co-workers

    Cons

    Company down-sizing to quickly, not enough resources and people are asked to pick up more and more work everytime a position is eliminated. Consolidating roles and de-leveling the organization to much. Career advancement depends on your connection to 1-2 Senior Commercial leaders. Nepotism run wide.....boys club with only lip service to promote talented women.

    Advice to Management

    Strart hiring and promoting people other than those in your inner circle.
