Military and Veterans

Join the many veterans, reservists, guardsmen and military spouses who are continuing to transform lives through their work at BMS.

Making the transition from the military back to civilian life can be a challenge. To help, we formed a dedicated Veterans Community Network (VCN), where the support of fellow service members fosters engagement and creates a sense of community. Bristol Myers Squibb provides a rewarding work environment for veterans to build their careers and to create a new life for themselves and their families.

Supporting Military Members Like Ken Faria

Shortly after joining BMS, Ken Faria found out he was being deployed for several months as a member of the Air National Guard. Without hesitation, his manager and team stepped up to support him during his military leave—and then worked together to make his transition back into civilian life as seamless as possible.

This level of support is something every military-connected individual can expect at BMS. You’ll also be directly supported by like-minded peers through our award-winning employee resource group for the military-connected community. Now is the time to apply the skills you built during your military career to help us change the future of health for humanity.
