Lensmaker (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – June 21, 2016
Typical day at work was fun, entertaining, and productive. I learned that we were a team. One hand washes the other. We were all responsible for operation of the company. No matter what department you worked in. Management supportive, and awarded you for job well done. Me and co-workers supported each other. No matter the situation. Personal and job related. The hardest part of my job were those long 12hr nights. And being away from children at night. And leaving a husband to sleep alone. The most enjoyable thing about my job would be the friends that I have made. The different jobs they allowed me to learn. And the cleanest of the work place.
Senior Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – May 24, 2016
This company's focus was on Eye Health. I was hired to support the VP of Talent Management and Organizational Effectiveness. I also supported the Manager of Employee Relations and Manager of Corporate Health and Wellness. Supporting these people and their stuff really opened up the world of Human Resources to me. I learned many aspects of this function. Supporting the VP meant scheduling meetings, booking global travel, responsible for department budget, meeting prep using PowerPoint, Excel & Word, I was involved in initiating the Talent system called Taleo and launching globally. I was introduced to SharePoint and worked with a team member in IT that showed me how to maintain the HR site. Learning the system came easy to me. My IT partner called me a natural. My largest project was leading the execution and transition to a new service award program for the US and Canada. I was also involved with the Women's Network at B&L which participated in a number of community projects including fitting children in need with glasses on an annual basis. My co-workers were some of the best people I have ever worked with. It's a shame that B&L was sold because I'm quite sure I would have retired from there had they not been.
Everyday I learned something new.
I was let go on day one of the sale of B&L to Valiant

The hardest part of my job was being a perfectionist. I am an individual that follow Standard Operating Procedures, Company Policies and Rules, and all Government Standards.

Good culture work place. The big problem Support personal only 2 persons for 24x7. When one person not doing the work another will over working for 24x7. Manager did not do anything to fix the problem.
Bausch and Lomb is a very large company but I felt like it was a small-mid sized company. they have great people, great benefits,m and it was all good. They finally started coming out with new products which really started to turn things around, becuase they were lagging behind for a long time.
