Pros

The benefits are great. The 401 k is unbeatable in any industry much less the pharmaceutical industry. The health insurance and dental insurance are great. They have a credit union on campus which is quite convenient. There is also a company store which sells Alcon products and Nestle products. The prices on baby formula and pet food are a great buy. There's a great cafeteria which is a little pricey for lunch but you can't beat the breakfast. The campus itself is beautiful. The salaries are better than average for the Fort Worth/Dallas metro area.

Cons

Just bought by Novartis who lay off people without even a care. Parking is horrible and you have to walk at least 1/4 mile to your car. In the Texas summer this is not pleasant at all.

Advice to Management

Don't lie and say there won't be lay-offs when 3 weeks later people are being escorted out the door. Check and see who's really sitting around with NOTHING to do before you ruin people's lives.

    Pros

    Alcon is one of the most giving companies in the states when it comes to the benefits package. As far as a company that people can go and feel at home, Alcon is the place for that. even at the corporate office, it is easy to talk to just about anyone on the campus. There is a good workout facility on site for the employees use, however, it costs about $15 per month. Most people say that isn't very much, but if you like to workout with your spouse, this isn't a good option. Alcon still strives to have their employees stay healthy enough to stay at work for a long time. Once you are at Alcon, most people stay there until they retire.

    Cons

    The current employees have a hard time making more money if they started at the bottom and are working their way up.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people that take care of you.
