    I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee-friendly, annual bonus, lots of free food at company events, opportunities for community involvement, professional working atmosphere, nice working spaces.

    Cons

    Constantly re-organizing, your job is never safe, but they will treat you well during separation. Severance packages (according to your time with the company) are relatively generous.

    Advice to Management

    Eventually most company employees (except for the executives) will be contractors, not sure if that is good or bad. Many companies are also doing the same thing.

  3. "Great place to work, focus on the patient, but some big company politics"

    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.

    - Great work life balance, flexible work schedule, onsite day care
    - Innovation and tremendous change - several opportunities for people looking to grow and make an impact

    Cons

    -Confusion around career next steps as company is transforming itself and has a flatter structure

    Advice to Management

    - Great at acquiring new talent, but not able to paint a clear picture regarding the career path after the first role. This may result in losing employees that want to learn and grow.
