B&L was a fun place to work at
Manager (Current Employee), Bridgewater, NJMay 5, 2014
Until it got acquired by Valeant Pharmaceuticals.

The work at Bausch & Lomb was challenging yet fun. The co-workers were very smart and pleasant to work with.

All this changed after Valeant acquired Bausch & Lomb. There is no job security anymore because Valeant's growth model is based on mergers and acquisitions as against investments in R&D. With – more... every new acquisitions, starts a series of layoffs. Valeant's working environment is full of stress and anxiety. – less

Bausch + Lomb Customer Service Department
Project Lead & System Analyst (Former Employee), Rochester, NYNovember 25, 2013
Pros: people, culture, products, benefits, company history
Cons: never going to be the same company it used to be
For 15 years I worked at Bausch + Lomb and enjoyed every year I was employed there. I was let go during the acquisition by Valeant and I'm currently looking for work. I have nothing but great things to say about my 15 years of service at Bausch + Lomb. I cannot speak to the current environment as I no longer work there.

Customer Resource Associate - CRC (Current Employee), Rochester, NYSeptember 3, 2013
Pros: love the environment and the people
Cons: not knowing if the new owners are going to keep us.
I take phone orders from doctors offices as well as being Sales Support to our 35 sales reps. These reps are for our Vision Care (contact lenses and solutions), and our Pharmaceutical reps.

I take care of everything from phones, service issues, credits, tracking orders and entering promotions.

I am also a senior rep. so I am a floor trainer and mentor – more... as well. I am dependable, and a great multitasker.

I have taken as many as 225 calls a day, before automation began. I am in training now to be a "chat agent" for our on-line ordering. – less

B+L was an excellent place to work.
Principal Scientist (last position) (Former Employee), Rochester, NYAugust 30, 2013
The purchase of B+L by Valeant displaced many talented and diligent workers. I hope that the remaining staff there is able to continue the business and serve its customers.

Regulatory Operations Specialist (Former Employee), Irvine, CAAugust 8, 2013
Pros: environment with high performance standards yet laid-back and fun group
Cons: mediocre benefits and bad management during the merger
Typical day at work was stressful at times yet productive with great support from collegues. Excellent Management and co-workers. Hardest part was the merger/aquisition of the company and having conflicting interests with other groups. The most enjoyable part was the tight-knit group and support even through difficult times of the merger.

Decline to state (Current Employee), Decline to stateApril 1, 2013
Pros: good 401(k)
Company is mired in infrastructure problems and now wants to go public. They do not value the work experience of their employees and spend too much time in meetings. No one really wants to get the work done - just talk about it - forever and forever . . .
