    I have been working at Alcon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great environment, open culture, world class benefits, generous vacation time (you are allowed to use whenever you want)

    Cons

    raises are minimal per year and promotions are capped at certain percentages. how are they going to keep talent????

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you doing and hire more young people. the organization needs young talent not people that have been there for 25+ years who are afraid of change
