    I worked at Valeant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work-life balance is the only one i can think of.

    Cons

    Incompetent employees and managers, including upper management, totally unprofessional with nil knowledge about PV regulations/requirements. No process, no relationship with other departments like RA, Medical or Local PV. Lack of transparency and HR communications, promotions based on who you know not what you know. Interview agreements and contract were not respected. They hire people with experience, but ignore their recommendations. There are many other cons, but you got the point.
