    I worked at Bausch & Lomb full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    B&L has a clear vision of company direction and is very good at communicating status. It has a fast-paced environment where days go by quickly. The beauty and cleanliness of the facility made going to work very nice. The corporate identity through branding is effectively used.

    Cons

    The employee culture at B&L seems to be caustic, and it appears to be tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline those that contribute to an environment where ascension is tantamount to muddying the reputation of others.

    I worked at Bausch & Lomb as a contractor

    Pros

    There were several people (very few) that were really dedicated to their jobs, and gave the impression that things weren't ALL BAD

    Cons

    Microbiology Department: The quality supervisor, microbiology (A. Ferreira) was the only helpful, competent supervisor. She was the only person who listened to concerns and provided constructive, informed responses.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire contractors to manage day-to-day activities! Especially ones that 1) have no idea what we do and 2) don't care to learn what we do


  4. "Total chaos"

    Pros

    If you are an underperforming sales person it's a good place to be. Top performers leave within a year. Laughing stock of the industry

    Cons

    Horrible management that has a broken compass. Don't be fooled by the name. This company has had better days and is not investing in it's infrastructure and tech

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking a marketing program can change subpar products
