I have been working at Alcon

Pros

The benefits are great. The 401 k is unbeatable in any industry much less the pharmaceutical industry. The health insurance and dental insurance are great. They have a credit union on campus which is quite convenient. There is also a company store which sells Alcon products and Nestle products. The prices on baby formula and pet food are a great buy. There's a great cafeteria which is a little pricey for lunch but you can't beat the breakfast. The campus itself is beautiful. The salaries are better than average for the Fort Worth/Dallas metro area.

Cons

Just bought by Novartis who lay off people without even a care. Parking is horrible and you have to walk at least 1/4 mile to your car. In the Texas summer this is not pleasant at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lie and say there won't be lay-offs when 3 weeks later people are being escorted out the door. Check and see who's really sitting around with NOTHING to do before you ruin people's lives.

    Cons

    Local leadership in Middle East do not listen they are keen about their jobs and satisfying their managers more than on the company and people in it, lots of politics and evading change
