    Great benefits, vacation was 120 hours and sick time was 48 hrs. Bonus given on a yearly basis. Location was small.

    Gossip ladies, preference for people, lack incentives, spent money on the customer, audit people instead of workers. Management lacked supporting manufacturing issues

    Acknowledge people with incentives

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

    Pros

    Great benefits for permanent employees (non-temp). Pay is pretty good if you can argue a good salary.

    Cons

    This place is definitely top heavy. Managers have managers that have supervisors. The politics makes working here difficult some times. You have to watch your back and mind what you say, because anyone could be listening or watching you on a camera. Big brother is big indeed.

    Advice to Management

    Fire half of management, stop promoting incompetence, and do your job. After that, I have no problem with what you guys do.

    I have been working at Bausch & Lomb as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An extensive and solid training program.
    Great people to work with including management.
    Great benefits package, PTO and vacation time.

    Cons

    Understaffed since the integration.
    It is hard, if not impossible to have a voice that is heard. If you have better ideas to improve a task, good luck getting that through to management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open minded to the employees when they have an idea for growth within the department.

    Pros

    They have great benefits, a solid training program, they update information through lots of communication with employees

    Cons

    The on boarding process was rough, wish more detail had been explained to me as I had to figure out a lot of it on my own.

    Pros

    Great collaboration from your peers. Fun office experience. Work closely with a lot of smart, hard working and overall great people.

    The Valient purchase split the company regionally and made US/OUS operations difficult. I still have many friends working there and the environment has changed for the worse.

    Advice to Management

    Revert back to the global model
