Gone Downhill
Director (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJAugust 11, 2018
Was a great company several years ago.
Early on there were many opportunities but over time the company started becoming smaller and niche.
The culture went downhill.

Senior District Business Manager - NS- LTC (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAAugust 11, 2018
Bristol-Myers Squibb used to be a large, diverse pharmaceutical company that competed very well. However, senior management is only okay and they've changed to become a much smaller company focused on specialty markets.

Great Company
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 2, 2018
This is a great company to work for as long as you are not in People Services or Shared Services. There are no promotional opportunities if you are from a certain ethnicity and this is due to the managers there. Anywhere else is fine.
Pros
fun, flexible, always food around, nice employee perks.
Cons
managers in People Services are awful, incompetent and discriminatory. High turnover and no promotional opportunities.

Contractors are not equal partners
Contractor - Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New Brunswick, NJJuly 31, 2018
I have now been on both sides of the fence as a long time employee in various jobs and a contractor at BMS. I might as well have been an alien. It is dependent on the team you are on but I found the facility and research teams to be demanding & dismissive You did not feel like you were a part of the team. The culture is very us against you. My contract is ending after a year and although Im sorry that Im losing a regular job I dont feel like Ill miss the people.
Pros
Easy commute
Cons

Great Experience
Analytical Chemist (Former Employee) –  New Brunswick, NJJuly 27, 2018
I enjoyed working in Analytical R&D but I moved with my husband to Maine. The only negative about my time there was you had to get a bachelor's degree to get anywhere b/c they have a union for technicians and w/o the paper your stay there. BUT they have (or had) great education benefits and always flexible in hours to accommodate.

Good place to work.
Director (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJJuly 27, 2018
Dynamic workplace. Never a dull moment. Not much work life balance. 50+ hr workweeks are the norm. Shrinking organization means less room for promotion.

Manager, Systems & Distribution - US
Marketing Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJJuly 25, 2018
I enjoyed the 25 years of service with B-MS. I had the opportunity to experience brand launches of key products. Managed a 3rd party Distribution vendor and launched a system to support the review and approval of Promotional/Non-Promotional materials for the sales force and Direct to Consumer (DTC) campaigns to Healthcare providers (HCPs). In addition, system met the Transparency project guidelines.
.
My management style is to treat your employees how you would like to be treated. They are the front line, without them they would not be successful. The most enjoyable part of my job was working in an matrix environment at all levels including Medical, Legal, Regulatory, Sales, Marketing to name a few. I love to learn, B-MS was always in the state of constant change.

Clinical Trial Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 25, 2018
BMS is a great place to work but there is not much for upward mobility in terms of research and development. The environment and culture is great focusing on patients and health. One of the major perks of this job is the ability to work remotely.
