    I have been working at Valeant full-time (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.

    I worked at Valeant full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits. PTO was also very generous.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Improve Communication and Trust not only to investors but towards employees as well to build a more stable and effective corporation.

    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.
