    I worked at Alcon as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job if you are desperate.

    Cons

    Don't come here if you smoke and don't be a temp here. The managment and employees treat you like you are lower than a rat if you are a temp. If you are a temp you are not allowed to go to any company functions even though you may work 40+ hours for them. You give up your weekends and work nights and they won't hire you. They just drag you along for years and keep telling you that you will be hired if you just wait it out. I don't think I have enough room here to go into shift supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    I watched the transition to novartis and the euro style is a recipe for a sinking ship. I did not find but a hand full of college educated employees that have been there longer than 10 years. The smart ones got out. While I was there I saw kids get promoted while anybody who had a clue was ignored. Replace your shift supervisors.

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

    Pros

    They have their own cafeteria, credit union, gym and good benefits.

    Cons

    They rarely will hire their temps. 90 percent Asians. Hard to understand their language. They became public and stopped having holiday parties and I have to punch in on a time card. Too Big.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with employees about goals and where they want to go in the future.
