    Former Employee - Special Products Expansion Technician in Fort Worth, TX
    Former Employee - Special Products Expansion Technician in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at Alcon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great revenues (nice salary), world leader in field, pedigree work environment. I had personal conversations with 2 different, very personable CEOs during my tenure there. On site gym, nice perks, a lot of flexibility and generally speaking, great leadership

    Cons

    Very hard to see professional growth if working in certain business units (which may be more of a universal problem). I was working in academics before joining Alcon for the second time. I saw a nice salary increase (~$30K) within the first year. But it was tough to grow past the initial job function, namely due to politics. I had friends in other areas see promotion with little to no extra effort. It may have been due to my mgmt team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise growth strategies for professionals across ALL business units.
