Custodian/Tech (Former Employee) – Bristol, RI – June 12, 2016
Started off with working in the cafeteria cleaning table, emptying trash barrels and checking the Bathrooms. Then cross walk duty after that I had 2 hallways, 2 bathrooms, 3 room and 16 classroom to clean.
The pay and benefits were great. The time was also great
Job duties were the same thing every day, One felt unappreciated
Garland Associate, Vendor Seller (Current Employee) – 16 Farnham Way – June 10, 2016
Bristol Fair has been a second home to me since I was in high school and I am very close with my co-workers. I have worked this job every summer since I was sixteen because you are basically getting paid to have fun and make kids smile. Selling flower crowns to little princesses and making their parents realize the price is worth their child's priceless entertainment, has been a joy for the last 9 years.

Warehouse Technical Support (Current Employee) – Manati, PR – September 29, 2014
My typical day at work is beginning early in the morning when i checked my emails and organize my agenda and see the priority for the day. My job is very dynamic for that reason all the time i learned about the rule of the goverment or something that was change Etc. As part of my resposability is coordinate some activity in the Warehouse when my boss is out i'm in charge of the all activity relate to receiving and shipping. I don't have any negative feedback for my co-workers because i'm a good team player and my opinion about that is if you want to get a excellent result you need to work together for the same goals. The hardest part of my job is i can't say "No" when somebody need any information or favor i give them, and the negative part for that is sometime i'm leaving later.

Director (Current Employee) – New Brunswick – June 5, 2014
The organization continues to undergo change and the new management team is anything but professional and definitely not your typical polished Pharma Executives. Its common to learn new information from your co-workers and expect your boss to ignore your questions, especially your direct ones. This used to be a great place to work but the great leaders have left or are looking to leave. The work is great but the environment makes it very hard to get anything done.

Network Operations Technician (Former Employee) – Bristol, VA – April 8, 2013
BVU - Bristol Virginia Utilities Authority is a wonderful place to work. Its a public utility company that also provides Internet, Phone and Cable via a huge Fiber Optic network that BVU built in SW Virginia. The majority of supervisors and higher management people are outstanding, and while it does have some amount of Politics, its not a huge concern. BVU treats their employees with respect, has a vast network of people you can go to when you feel something is not right. Everyone in middle-management and above are extremely competent in their areas.
There are a few problem areas but seriously given all the things that BVU does for its employees, their families & the community they are minor. The CEO is a great man and I have never heard any CEO say things about his people that I ever believed til I met him. He believes in taking care of his people. I had to be hospitalized twice and I never went one day with out pay, due to the generosity of the employees and the policy that you could donate your sick time to others.
I loved everyone there and still do. If I had not decided to come back home to help my sister with new baby, I would still (i hope) be working there.
Hands down, the best job and the best company I have ever worked for.
lots of activities, lunches, xmas parties, great salary, great people, lots of opportunities.
anyone not used to having "faith" & "church" intertwined into their work day. but a small thing, very small.
Is a good company and the people that worked here have graet values, commitment and are proud of their contribution to enhance the human life.
Knowledge Transfer Leader (Former Employee) – Humacao Puerto Rico – August 6, 2012
A typical day was to developmet people, managemnet all aspect of the regulatory training departement and the site objective goal. I worked for BMS for 22 years in many regulatory roles, Quality Auditor, Product Compliance and Site Knowledge Transfer Leader, all of these position represented to me a growth of my professional careers. the hardest part of my job, was an implementation of new ideas or innovated process. The most unjoylable part of my job was the opportunty to develop people.
too much work with less people and the lack of management vision to innovate.
