    I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture seems to be friendly and connected.
    New Management is starting to address the issues.
    Old management stuck in their ways has moved onward

    Cons

    Salary was not negotiated too much and rather low balled too.
    Lots of bureaucracy - but being addressed by new leadership.
    Things seem to be more complicated then they need to be with overly processed approaches to their work. Needs more streamlining and simplification.

    Advice to Management

    On my exit it seems new management in the clinical research space see's the issues and are ready to address and strategize on how to improve the organization. This may take some time given the deep roots of these issues, but the good news is they are being addressed.
