Overall Alcon is a good company

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsWill receive the typical benefits from pharma companies i.e car, good health benefits, 401K etc. The company likes to promote from within. Calling on Optometrist is not so bad because they are generally a nice group of doctors.

ConsThe Vision Care division (which sell contacts lens) calls itself a "medical device" company...since when are contact lens and over the counter contact lens cleaning solution a "medical device?"

Advice to Senior ManagementThe mangement team is ok. Not a group that I would say are great leaders.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
