    I have been working at Alcon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Able to move to other locations if positions open. Excellent coworkers and team members

    Cons

    upper management uses flawed metrics very unfairly to rate their field force. Unwilling to listen or try to be open to suggestions to make it fair. They also allow customers dictate our business making situations worst instead of designating the proper managers handle bad situations Too many confusing messages regarding OT

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower management and field force or you will begin to loose personnel
