    I have been working at Bausch & Lomb (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company pays very well.

    Cons

    Too much politics and estrogen. Not enough honesty. It is common place for employees to throw each other under the bus for a promotion that you will not get.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all current management.

    Pros

    No such thing as under qualified.

    Cons

    VTX sucked the life and brains out of this company. All that's left is a shell of paid off top levels and incompetent box checkers.

    I worked at Bausch & Lomb full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and perks, not a cheap company, and very stable global company doing business in a medical field that should have a good future and outlook.

    Cons

    The position I accepted turned out to be quite different than what was advertised or discussed during the lengthy interview process. This was due to a severe difference of outlook between what the national office had versus what the manager of the local plant had, regarding this position. The individual locations scattered around the globe were not under good control by the corporate headquarters in Rochester.

    Advice to Management

    Your HR processes need to be reviewed and revised.

    I worked at Bausch & Lomb full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Bausch + Lomb was innovative, forward looking, and valued quality people...this literally ended the day Valeant took over, so the great folks (there were many) have left, leaving those that don't want to leave for some reason, or can't leave for some reason.

    Cons

    Under Valeant, the company is following the business model that Valeant has for a few years now, which is to fire all support and innovative personnel, and hope those few left can keep the lights on long enough to suck the products dry, and the discard the company like yesterday's garbage. A shame to end Bausch + Lomb's 160 years of success and innovation with at the hands of such a destructive company as Valeant, but I'm doing my part to warn folks not to get involved.

    Advice to Management

    I have none - they are simply carrying out the genius (sarcasm) of Mike Pearson, who gets a big payout if he can keep the charade going until 2018. If you don't believe that, research his compensation agreement - you'll see everything, and all will be made clear. It's an awful organization and I only have it 1 star because I can't give it 0.
