    I worked at Bausch & Lomb full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work, people great to work with most of the time. Money SUCKED, no where near what is advertised on this site. Most of time, people were easy to deal with.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to exist. People are blamed for failures, when it isn't even closely related to their fault. Processes are decades outdated. Computers on average 10+ years old - still running Windows XP. Internal applications VERY buggy, crash ALL the time. Internal Wireless network - operating on single channel - so goes down for several hours per shift. Have more processes in place to prevent failures, not continuing to cover up in adequate technology, and process control. Get rid of current guy in charge of maintenance.. He has no training, or background for current position, and rarely fixes stuff correctly, in a timely manner. Things are are claimed to be Fixed, rarely stay fixed, and break over and over, even after being reported multiple times. No standards for packing, no standards for label placement, no shipping training available for new associates. Electronic documents are not available on site, as server for these is in NY. What if an emergency occured, and hi speed link was not available ? What happens then...no docs available at all on process or procedures locally.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of people that cannot make production ASAP. Keep those that are performing well beyond expectations. Fix stuff on time, when it is reported. Update computer systems to current models, and current software. Hire people based on ability, not political status.
