    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.
