    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Galderma Laboratories full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good: 401k matching, health plan, maternity leave, free product I made several connections with colleagues here that I will maintain for my entire career. There are several groups that work very hard and are passionate about their work. For those that play their cards right, there is opportunity for advancement as this organization prepares for the next phase with EQT.

    Cons

    Over the last 8 years, I witnessed the most turnover of my professional career. This was most prominent at the executive level: 5 CFO's and 4 CEO's in North America. The constant turnover in people and strategy has left the company short-sighted and struggling to execute within a 1-3 month time horizon. Historically the organization had a myopic focus on marketing and sales. This led to an underdeveloped operational backbone. While there are some bright spots, much of the organization still operates very inefficiently. Information is fragmented and teams are not well supported. Finally, while I enjoyed working with many of my colleagues there is a group I felt very uncomfortable working with (Rx business unit). The other two groups (consumer and aesthetic) had teams that were great to engage with. The Rx BU was incredibly insulated. They made it very clear who was "in" their group and who was not. This created an atmosphere of group-think, many of those that support the business do not feel they can speak independently or challenge ideas.
