Senior Research Investigator II (Former Employee) – New Jersey – February 1, 2018
I didn't feel challenge working in BMS and most days were relaxing. I learned some new knowledge from seminars and group presentations. I also learned advanced flowcytometry and principles of panel design. My most enjoyable part working in BMS is team work. We had very good working relationship. The hardest part in BMS is the pool laboratory conditions. The lab is crowded and instruments need to be upgraded.
Great culture. Professional environment. Difficult collaboration on promoted product with parent company. Management and expectations were fair. Targeted bonus structure could have been a bit more realistic in that there was to much variation from one quarter to the next.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Hopewell, NJ – January 29, 2018
I worked for a vendor at Bristol Myers. employees not empowered to make decisions all decision by committee most meeting had 20-30 participants. manager was micro-managing everyone most employees afraid of manager, not a leader. many contractors left before contracts ended. No organized project management lots of what I call 'Engineering in the back of the bus' over topics and issues that should have been covered much earlier in the project planning cycle.
Executive Legal Assistant (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – January 28, 2018
I had opportunities to work on many different projects and enjoyed watching myself grow over the last 20 years. I learned all my skills and developed a career in the legal field while working for BMS. I am truly thankful for everything they provided for me.

Troubleshoot Laptop hardware and windows software and resolve in a short period of time. Client's are very meeting and time concentric. Can be stressful at times when there are more client's than technicians.
Have to learn new technologies being rolled out on your own.
Pharmaceutical Representative (Former Employee) – Kingston, NY – January 19, 2018
Most fun part of the job was that everyday was different. I met lot of different people: Physicians, Nurses, Administrators, Pharmacists and after a while developed relationships with them. It was a sales job so was very competitive, but very civil. Got to go to dinners, tennis matches, local plays, baseball games. Lot of paperwork and keeping inventory control of samples was the hard part but very doable.
helpful managers and colleagues
depressed if not hit your weekly or monthly numbers
VETERNARIAN TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – January 17, 2018
The People are great working together very helpful and always pushing each other to work harder. Although the new Management Team that was hired to come in had no answers to anyone's questions to where we would have to wait Months for an answer, Management would get upset if "too many" questions asked. other than that its a good place to work.
Loved my Division & stayed because of all the great people
