    I worked at Alcon as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a job if you are desperate.

    Cons

    Don't come here if you smoke and don't be a temp here. The managment and employees treat you like you are lower than a rat if you are a temp. If you are a temp you are not allowed to go to any company functions even though you may work 40+ hours for them. You give up your weekends and work nights and they won't hire you. They just drag you along for years and keep telling you that you will be hired if you just wait it out. I don't think I have enough room here to go into shift supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I watched the transition to novartis and the euro style is a recipe for a sinking ship. I did not find but a hand full of college educated employees that have been there longer than 10 years. The smart ones got out. While I was there I saw kids get promoted while anybody who had a clue was ignored. Replace your shift supervisors.

    Pros

    The only thing good is the benefits

    Cons

    Co workers are mean. Supervisors are always on your case. Too much favoritism. The workers are the ones the company comes down on. The slackers get all the attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! This place use to be wonderful to work for. You treat us horribly. If the job market was better, I would be out of here. Would not recommend it to anyone.
