I worked at Bausch & Lomb full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Company had a lot of momentum to make the place a great place to work. Culture and employees were receptive to new ideas and very focused on being the best at their disciplines.Cons
In finance, many legacy processes/practices that remained in place because "that's the way it has always been done". This presented challenges as a new employee, especially one from a younger generation.Advice to ManagementAdvice
To Valeant, instead of letting go everyone in finance days after the acquisition closed, take the time to understand what everyone does. This could have avoided an interruption during the transition and possibly you could have realized you needed to retain some employees in finance.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Bausch & Lomb in December 2014.Interview Details
I applied to the position online and heard back from someone in HR within two weeks. First there was an initial phone screening where I was provided with more information about the position and went through my resume.
Directly after the phone screening, I was emailed, asking to schedule a skype interview for the following week. I did not think the skype interview went very well, however I was emailed right after to set up an in person interview. They flew me to their headquarters in NJ for an in person interview, which consisted of 4 rounds with different employees. Each round had a different focus. One focused on sales experience, another explained the job benefits, one went through my resume (again) and the last asked behavioral questions.
I felt like the interviews at the headquarters went well (compared to my previous interviews with them) but I was notified via email about a week later that I did not get the job.Interview Questions
