    Good benefits, pay is better vs other industries. Seemingly good vision for future.

    Too chaotic/lack of focus. Vision always sounds good but never focused enough to execute anything righy

    Advice to Management

    Focus & consistency . People need the time & resources to execute correctly vs constant band-aid fixes.

    I have been working at Alcon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Most of the management wants to help you improve. They pay for your college. I'm excited about the Alcon spinoff of Novartis

    Cons

    Novartis buying Alcon only hurt the company
    Starting off as a contractor can be rough, but once your foot is in the door the opportunities open up.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid micromanaging employees
