Assistant Quality Control Scientist (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – April 19, 2017
It is extremely difficult to be treated as an equal among BMS employees as a contract. It is frustrating at times to not be able to take on equal responsibilities to prove your worth to the company. As a contract you are also thrown around on really undesirable days (weekends and constant shift changes) that throw off a comfortable work/life balance.
Great company to work for. Room for adancement. Global relations across country as well as across the globe. Most times dealing with cross globe management during budget season and if a situation occurs. Otherwise, work with laterals to ourselves to handle day to day and month to month transactions.
Territory Business Manager in Pharmaceutical Sales (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – April 8, 2017
My responsibilities were to build and maintain professional relationships with physicians and their staff to gain access and promote the products of which I represented. Over the course of 15 years, I interacted with a variety of physicians/residents and called on different types of facilities (teaching/community hospitals, termination clinics, ER's, psych wards,etc). And I launched 12 drugs (anitbiotics, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants,anti-migraine, anti-hyertensives, diabetic, oral contraceptives, estrogen hormones). The culture and management all depended on who was the current District Manager. The most difficult aspect of the job was sometimes not having access to the customer. The best part was interacting with a variety of people and having some independence in my work.
Meeting people, using my medical knowledge, salary

Business Architect Process Modeler (Current Employee) – Lawrence, NJ – April 6, 2017
I have spent about the last year contracting at BMS and even though the company was and is still going through major transformations, my team and the work they did was tremendously satisfying.
I was respected and treated like a full-time employee as a contractor, which I have heard is uncommon. They expected a lot out of me and for me to quickly develop. My peers and managers gave me mentoring and guidance. However, I feel I was an exception as I was a pre-identified contractor and was reached out to about the contract from an internal team member.
For contractors and full time employees, I think the culture is very much enjoyable. The staff is wholly professional, the facilities are kept very tidy and, although it's a competitive environment, I never felt pushed around or on edge.
Very professional staff with high performance expectations
Cafeteria is a bit pricey. Strategic transparency from upper management, although unsure how much to expect in global corporations
Set responsibilities. I developed worksheet to payout United Way withholding and reconciled inter-company accounts. Hardest part was that I wasn't given opportunity to learn SAP database training. Most enjoyable part was timing. I could leave on time.
I would have to say that it has been a great learning experience. It is a fun place to work in, open environment, very modern, with excellent benefits. I had the opportunity to work in different projects and participate in stretch assignments with other departments as part of my development. I also loved the fact that the company allowed flexibility for working remotely.
