    Pros

    Great benifits, including health dental vision and legal insurance

    Cons

    The pay for current employees is very low compaired to what other medical places offer. Starting pay was raised without raising the pay of current employees that has created a lot of tension. People who been there for years who now find themselves making less than people who just got hired this year.

    Advice to Management

    find ways to increase overall pay to exisiting employees, not just increase pay to new hires

    Pros

    They really pay employees who have been there a while pretty reasonably. The company is changing and they are hiring a ton of temps. We actually have a temp agency working out of plant. WOW!!

    Cons

    Do not make any mistakes. They will be documented and you will be held accountable.

    I worked at Bausch & Lomb part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    When this company was Bausch & Lomb, the co-workers were fantastic, opportunities were plentiful, and things were advancing.

    Cons

    Little to no raises, virtually no promotions. Cut too many good programs like education assistance, no travel, and vacation time. Cut R&D to death - more concerned with buying products that developing them from within. Greedy upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Actually I can't post what I really want to say here.

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

    Pros

    Surgical division product line is high quality and good value for world wide distribution

    Cons

    Completely overshadowed by drug focus. Instrument R&D not being maintained even at subsistence levels. Tragic loss of talent and product knowlege

    Advice to Management

    Focus on B&L instruments and devices needs to be better balanced against the drug portfolio. This cash cow is being quickly drained and physician loyalty to the brand is eroding.
