    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.

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

    Pros

    The culture for those who work side by side (excluding the leadership tier) is inviting and motivating. Everyone is incredibly invested in the turnaround of the company and hopeful for the future.

    Cons

    We are still a lean company and internal communication (from manager to directs) still needs work. When priorities change at the drop of a hat and the new objective is not communicated properly, it causes a lot of frustration.

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

    Pros

    During my time at Valeant I am proud to say I've been part of an organization which has made great strides toward transformation . The efforts made by leadership to make this a successful company, as well as a desirable, happy place to work have been tremendous! It isn't a just flavor of the month initiative, executive leadership is all in on taking the organization to the next level.

    Cons

    Valeant has stabilized, but now leadership needs to work on normalizing the organization. Not so much a con, but an area that still needs improvement. Valeant is unlike any other organization, but in order to stack up against our competitors we need to be at the same level in regards to organizational management. Lots of work is being done, but its important they do this in order to keep their employees happy, and can sustain the improvements made.

    Advice to Management

    Quicker reaction time to urgent matters and better communication at a team level. Joe, continue your communication and transparency efforts, they are definitely noticed.

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

    Pros

    The company is trying to make positive changes. They genuinely want to improve the culture. Quite a bit has been overcome throughout the last 1 - 1.5 years which only helps build momentum.
    There are opportunities to move around throughout the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems as if helpful information is hidden and that there are certain processes that are followed just because its the way it has always been done. Seeing all of that change with a more useful intranet and understanding/flexibility in some areas would be great!

    Advice to Management

    Make yourselves seen and available. There aren't many junior people who will just walk up to your offices or ask for a meeting with you to address concerns. Seeing you throughout the building may make you seem more approachable and more in touch with things that are going on.

    Pros

    Some of their subsidiaries are small, close knit, companies

    Cons

    Very difficult environment. They call it "challenging" but really it is just impossible requests and timelines over and over again. They do pay women less.

    Pros

    Things are getting better each day. Leadership willing to listen so we can work towards results. CEO is leading the charge to improvement, business leaders are visibly more passionate and excited. Feels more people focused (both for patient and employee). big chance to make a difference. Company is wanting to make its employees happy again.

    Cons

    Some kinks to still work out. Seems like some are too negative and don't feel the rise in morale just yet. makes for a negative environment at times. Everyone needs to move onward and upward if we're going to turn it around.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure. I think management team is starting to get things under control. Company is too big to manage for us "little people'
