    I worked at CIBA Vision full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Certain managers are great people. Fantastic way to build your resume. Working with people that recognize what talents you have and then capitalizing on those talents is great. I learned a lot about multitasking as well as chemistry best practices.

    Cons

    Some stagnation in enthusiasm persistent across the company. I saw many great people leave the company with the merge with Alcon. It is important to remember each individual reaches a point where they cannot proceed up the ladder. Upward mobility was limited and thus many people had to leave the company.
