    I have been working at Valeant full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great effort by the leadership team over the last year in their efforts to transform the culture. The difference since I started working here is tremendous. Opportunity to develop my career has been fantastic. The company is still evolving, but the direction is very encouraging.

    Cons

    At times business groups tend to be siloed. Communication plans need to be improved around company policies.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your efforts on employee engagement. It would be great to have a wellness program implemented. It would also be great to have a more user friendly intranet.

    Pros

    Pay is very good and products are top in the industry. Managers are not overbearing and numbers speak for themselves

    Cons

    So much bad press that you dont know what the future holds day to day. Upper management including CEO is new and doesnt quite understand the nuances of Dermatology

    Advice to Management

    Pay out big bonuses to retain the best sales team. Learn the nuances of Dermatology on the ground level instead of in a board room.
