I worked at Alcon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great people to work with and excellent compensation package from Base Salary, Bonus Structure, Company Car, 401K, Health Benefits, and Vacation time.

Cons

The Company Culture has changed a great deal since Novartis has taken over and it's not nearly as fun to work there. Several good people have been forced out and the Sales Divisions have been somewhat stagnant over the past couple of years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to the basics of listening to your employees and incorporating some of their feedback into making improvements in moral and operation structure.
