    I worked at CIBA Vision full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Being owned by a large pharma company can be a real plus from that perspective.

    I worked with some great people.

    Pre-Alcon, managers had a lot of independence. There was freedom and support to drive to results.

    Cons

    Pharma companies breed bureaucracy, and Novartis is no exception.

    Pushing Ciba into Alcon did not go well. Even though Ciba Vision had a lot more insight into how Novartis worked, Alcon didn't care.

    Work life balance was not the best.

    Very quarterly results driven. Have a bad quarter (or worse, a bad year), and layoffs were virtually automatic, no matter workload or contribution.

    Advice to Management

    For Novartis, consider spinning Alcon off.

    For Alcon, remember that Texas is not the center of the universe.

    I worked at CIBA Vision as an intern

    Pros

    The people are basically the only reason to stay. There is a team atmosphere, and they care about ~you~. It's nice to know you can go to your supervisor for more than just work issues.

    Cons

    BORING. It's like they don't really know what to do with interns. And, for FTEs, I heard lots of complaints while I was there about hitting a ceiling in their job - and a low ceiling at that.

    Advice to Management

    Care about more than the bottom line. There are good people there. invest in them to get them to stay.
