A typical day at Alcon for me was to go on our CyberGrants database and pull grant requests from requestors. Review grant requests for their validity and appropriate grant specialist's responsibility. Fill out specific forms and direct to grant specialist. Assist grant specialists for payment by check requisition, contacting grant requestor for more information or however assistance is needed.
I have learned so much at Alcon. There were opportunities as I would volunteer to use my PowerPoint and Excel knowledge for fun activities outside the normal work day (Maintain Don't Gain or birthdays bulletins etc.).
Alcon's management was very loyal to it's employees and in return it made the employees want to work hard and loyal to Alcon.
My co-workers worked together as a team with knowledge to strengthen one another to make a more profitable Alcon.
With Novartis joining Alcon there were constant changing procedures, forms, policies, softwares that it was difficult with some of management wasn't prepared to distribute information as properly needed.
There were so many opportunities in health, career, fun, benefits etc. it seemed were just endless.
