    I have been working at Bausch + Lomb full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Even though the environment of the Leaders is toxic, there are some really good people that I've come to know over the years.

    Cons

    Director levels back stab each other not to mention the employees that work under them. Pretty sad how the loyal, hardworking and good attendance employees get shafted constantly and the lazy who nothing employees get promoted and pay increases, because their work has been pawned off on someone else. SMH!

    Pros

    Great products, great people.

    Cons

    Leadership is out of touch with sales force. Leadership consistently changing directions and reporting. You're just another number.

    I have been working at Bausch + Lomb full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No one stands over your shoulder and micromanages you. You are free and left to your own devices, as long as you get the work done. You can ask for help and expect to receive it. No one works in silos. People are always moving about.

    Cons

    If you come on as a contractor through a staffing agency the pay is slightly less than if you come in permanently. I don't necessarily see this as a con. Staffing agencies have to turn a profit off the employees they source and contracted employees want to be able to ask for/expect a pay increase when they transition into permanent employment .
