I have been working at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Compensation, 401K, stock awards at mid to higher levels. Mostly good people. Great training and career development. Decent pipeline (a few years out).

Cons

Seems to reorganize every 18-24 months. This leaves employees with a sense of instability.
Tough to get things done due to internal corporate bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Your reorganization has made departments less efficient.

    I have been working at Bristol-Myers Squibb full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and good location. I work with a good group of people and we all get along very well. Although the company is very large our group works together well and gives it a small company atmosphere.

    Cons

    I would have thought that a company with as many employees as this would have a lot of room for growth but it is actually quite the opposite. There are very few promotions within our group and no suggestions on how to get ahead in the company.

    I worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns/Co-Ops make meaningful contributions to company. Flexibility to work on projects that align with your goals. Lots of education for Co-Ops. Management was very helpful and understanding. Surrounded by very smart people.

    Cons

    Slow-moving environment, bureaucracy sometimes gets in the way of fast-paced innovation in the business operations environment, understandable for a pharmaceutical company however.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Being overly formal sometimes puts up communication barriers, especially with younger employees.
