    I have been working at Valeant full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    My boss is awesome and give me the support needed to keep me motivated. This is the only reason I’m still here.

    Cons

    Pay is low as compared to industry but more over less than peers in other BUs doing the same job! Basic resources to perform duties, to the most bare degree, are lacking. It appears that upper management has no clue what is actually transpiring at the field level. Operations is constantly changing, and not in the right direction. Operations is a revolving door as is HR. Home office employees, in partnership marketing, is not held accountable for lack of resources and if sales are down the mentality is “the sales force isn’t doing their job.” Unless your work at HO there is NO promotion from within.

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits. PTO was also very generous.

    Lack of communication between Corporate and Subsidaries. The high debt the company currently has makes it susceptible to lay-offs and downsizing.
