    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 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.

    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.
