"I loved the job because there was something new to learn and study every day. We had the best instruments and technology. My troubleshooting skills were excellent. The one thing I disliked about the job was sometimes long hours and weekend work without management even giving you a thank you."

Senior Scientist at Valeant Pharmaceuticals
in Petaluma, CA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Valeant offers no job security or compassion for employees."

What do you like about working at Valeant Pharmaceuticals?

"I worked for a company acquired by Valeant. The original company was great - Valeant is not. There is no job security (4 rounds of lay-offs in 4+ years by Valeant, while the original had none in 31 years). Valeant's benefits are O.K., but the insecurity overrides all strengths. They grant stock, but good luck lasting long enough to receive it."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Do not interview. NO job is safe at Valeant. I do not recommend working here."

What don't you like about working at Valeant Pharmaceuticals?

"Lies by management, job insecurity and a total lack of R&D. Valeant innovates by buying more companies."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Be very honest with companies that are bought regarding lay-offs and plans. Stop lying about plans, how decisions are made and what the future holds."
