Great learning experience, but company had growing pains

I worked at CIBA Vision

Pros

Good, smart people
Passionate employees
Good brand marketing experience

Cons

Consensus based decision making made getting things done very difficult (numerous presentations at every level (laterally and vertically) to get approvals)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not sure if this is still the case, but my advise would be to trust your employees. Everyone is highly vetted and very smart. Trust them to do their jobs.

    Excellent and varied, but marred by bureucracy and politics towards the end.

    I worked at CIBA Vision full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Employ highly professional people, excellent product line.

    Cons

    Bureucratic and overly process driven - from parent company, Novartis. Long term view constantly disrupted by (unnecessary) short term expedients to show high profits.

    Doesn't Recommend
