    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.

    Outsource things you are not good at to smaller US firms; not Indian firms.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 10 years)

    Pros

    I got a paycheck, paid vacation and some holidays. I can not say much good about the company after Valeant took over. Please see below for more details.

    Cons

    When Valeant took over I went from having 5 weeks of vacation to 4. I also lost the ability to purchase an additional week of vacation. They also took away one holiday from us. People are leaving in droves due to the work environment. The ones that remain are forced to work much harder than when the company was run by previous management. Valeant does not want to hire nor can they retain people.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating people like the professionals they are.
