    Great company to work at, until it was acquired by Valeant Pharmaceuticals

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBausch + Lomb had a strong work environment, good career opportunities, and great people. It offered a lot and had a great heritage in the ophthalmics industry.

    ConsIt tended to operate in a lean fashion, creating a challenge to maintain an appropriate work/life balance. There was a tendency to create too many systems.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work until the sale

    Applications Developer (Current Employee)
    Rochester, NY

    ProsGood compensation, lots of flexibility, great people, excellent benefits

    ConsSale of company to Valeant is going to destroy B+L legacy. Valeant can't handle running a company this size so they will just dismantle it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink with your heads, not your wallets. People made this company, not management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
