Federal Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 5, 2018
The company has been good to me in terms of providing a place to work but it is not a place I can see growth.

The companies need to work more together vs separate.

Technician (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYJune 24, 2018
12 hour rotating shifts. Manager never see you work but still review you at the end of the year with some generic copy and paste despite how hard you work. Business is dying, and lack of management and anything even close to a business strategy is causing it to just sink further into the red. This is at bausch and lomb in Rochester, one of valeants "better" companies....

A company with a bright future, but a dark past
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJMay 22, 2018
Valeant is a large pharma company that is working its way out of a shady past that has left a bit of a mess for current employees. The company looks to be on its way to a successful future, but its poor management and lack of company culture make it nearly impossible for employees to look forward to going to work everyday.
Pros
Compensation, Ceo, Company has a bright future
Cons
Work Life Balance, Culture, Management

Terrible company
Senior Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 14, 2018
This company and all levels of management use fear to motivate its salesforce. Even after I won a presidents club award the manager called the next day to complain about how I do my job. A rep can never do enough. Terrible experience left even gave up my award trip
Pros
None
Cons
Pressure

too focused on cost, not product development
Digital Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJMay 4, 2018
Nice place to work. Co-workers seemed all to be on the same page and had nice team work on projects. But, the company seemed to be too focused on cost and not product development/growth. Read other postings, it seems they have been called a fake pharma in the past that is more of a hedge fund.

Slave Ship
Senior Credit Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJApril 26, 2018
The management here expects you to be robots. No job security. Changes every month. They show favoritism to employees that have been there longer making it very difficult for a new person starting. Not welcoming at all. Sets very high expectations without providing the resources to get the job done. Never again.

Manager (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJApril 24, 2018
Nepotism was the law of the land. If you were not related to someone, you had very little chance of security. You need to make sure you know the politics of the department you are going to work for before going out on a limb and letting people get to know you.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Nepotosm

MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Union City, GAApril 11, 2018
The company is a good match for gaining experience if you're an entry level employee looking to move up, that's it. I used it as a stepping stone and bit the bullet when it came to being paid just so I could gain manufacturing and biopharma knowledge.Expect to start off on night shift as a contractor and wait about a year before being brought on full-time.
Pros
Great pay after becoming permanent
Cons
Most likely night shift, management micro manages alot

Senior Director, Quality Operations and Compliance (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCMarch 27, 2018
I enjoyed working at Valeant. We went through many acquisitions and it was hard to keep Quality systems harmonized at the different sites. Upper Management was focused on acquiring companies and increasing the stock price.

Credit and Collections Manager (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJMarch 21, 2018
I worked in the Credit and AR group and it was the worst experience in my life. There was a lot of finger pointing, and back stabing. Morale was like working at a funeral home. An episode of the Walking dead has more hope then that working in this group. Senior Mgmt does not want to invest in systems so the AR close takes 3 full business days because of two archaic systems never reconciling. Reporting is all done out of Excel. Only if you are desperate to meet your rent are car payment should you accept a job in this group. Otherwise does not compare to other company's of their size.
Pros
Gym, Cafateria
Cons
Systems, leadership, Morale

Sales & Marketing Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJFebruary 24, 2018
New CEO has made some good changes overall, but workloads are tough and there's little mentoring or support. Lots of people given more work due to firings (some sudden and without notice).

Easy job but management needs improvement.
Working Filling Lead (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCFebruary 7, 2018
Employees are somewhat easy to work with but the management can be immature and unrealistic with their expectations. There could be some improvement in the way that management treats the employees and the way that management judges immaturity.

Sales Rep./Field Sales Trainer (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 16, 2018
Great workday support if needed that allowed me to learn about a new women's health product in a new space (HSDD). Loved teaching new info to docs. Valeant was great at providing promotional material for field effectiveness.
