    I have been working at Alcon as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are from Africa a great starting place with no experience in manufacturing to start off with. Only for foreign people with no work ethics and or experience in manufacturing, and fear of defending themselves against bad management. Easy money and jobs no brainers, pick this up put it together and try to meet their outrageous quotas. Plenty of nice people, but their are always trying to make money off you by selling you expensive things.

    Cons

    Too many inexperienced people at high management spots with no work ethics and or training. Extreme employee drop outs, high turn over rate, very low rate of permanent turn over rate to Permanent Employee. No teamwork, your on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of troublesome Management people with no experience what so ever, overhaul your outdated tracking system on floor to keep track of material online, CytriX!!!! Use Online Programming material for new employee job workers to train while at work, get rid of messy paper work that's over 20 years outdated. Update network system on computer servers. Tons more Ideas can't put in here.
