    Current Employee - Anonymous in Sinking Spring, PA

    I have been working at Alcon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. That's it

    Cons

    Constantly work mandatory overtime. No home life. Way too much favoritism in my department. If you make a suggestion for improvement you never hear anything about it. Lead controls supervisor. Can do no wrong. Employees can do nothing right unless you are in the click. Tired of being treated like a child and abused, while the favorites can do anything they want. Don't ever make a mistake. You get a report card at the end of the month with your mistakes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for a change in supervisors. Get rid of them like they get rid of us. I would love to give my supervisor a review. Definitely would fire them. We need management that cares

    I worked at Alcon full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    None really worst experience I ever had

    Cons

    Employees are poorly treated and take it out on each other the managers like to bully and insult those who work under them which creates an environment where no one has any incentive to work effectively. Too much outsourcing over the last 7 years has made a mess of Alcon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to save money by outsourcing your talent and sticking the money in the pockets of your executives. Your only making a mess of the company in the long term.
