    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

    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'

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

    Pros

    This is a very interesting company in that there is little bureaucracy compared to other corporates I've worked for. You are enabled to actually do your job to the best of your ability. The company also rewards performance very well.
    Pay is good and equity compensation can be generous.

    Both a pro and a con, but since there is direct accountability your experience can vary a lot depending on your department or direct manager. Mine is very flexible which leads to an excellent quality of life.

    Despite occasional long hours, the lack of general roadblocks create much less headaches.

    Cons

    Very few vacation days
    No pre-tax transit benefits
    Benefits overall are okay, not amazing
    IT is okay
    The office is in the middle of no where

    Advice to Management

    It is a growing and changing company, not too much that needs to be worked on yet.

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

    Pros

    They treated us respectful, professional, were reasonable with their requests and time frames to get work accomplished. They actually listened to the sales force and tried to accomodate!

    Cons

    The only negative was very slim product line, the drug I was selling for Hep C came out poorly in new clinical trial, efficacy only 10 %, company sold product off , all reps let go due to nothing else to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, get some more products, call me to work there again!
