    Pros

    Relaxed environment and great people to work with. Work with front end tools like SAP BI and some of big box vendor tools.

    Cons

    Relaxed environment doesnt promote growth. People usually arent responsive to emails or inquiries unless there is top down command. Stagnant culture.

    Advice to Management

    Have more team building events among staff level employees, departments are very siloed.

    Pros

    Great benefits and discounts, 401K match is good, surprise contests with nice prizes

    Cons

    They say they are family oriented but expect you to work all holidays and for management, there are so many weeks were you are not able to take vacation you miss out on alot, for example no time off in March, which if you have children, they usually have a spring break, no time off during August, etc, plus many other times

    Advice to Management

    Tell your managers they are appreciated and show it, be a little more flexible with time off.

    Pros

    Discounts are great and getting to meet all different kinds of people. Great vision insurance as well.

    Cons

    Commissions were not enough to even cut what we sell. Working alone is not fun especially when a lot of people enter the store or there are people stealing.

    Advice to Management

    Better loss prevention techniques could deter shoplifters. Also restructure commissions to mirror how much we sell.

    Pros

    Luxottica boasts an environment that is friendly, energetic, and inspirational. Though at times the work load can be demanding and requires working past normal business hours, the experience you gain is unparalleled. The company is great and is reflective of the wonderful people that work there.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, once you are at a manager level it is difficult to progress higher within the organization. Also, compensation is not always within industry standards.

    Pros

    Great relationship with coworkers and you meet alot of people.

    Not enough hours on a stable basis. When sales are down, your hours get cut down.

    Advice to Management

    A company is made up of people who have thier lives to support, even when profits are down your employees have to pay thier bills.

    Pros

    Company has a nice culture and does their best to improve employees with training and great incentives. Upper management consisted of really nice people.

    Store manager only cared about her own performance. Promises were mostly not fulfilled. Picked favorites.

    Treat your workforce as a team and put your words into actions.

    Pros

    I love working for sunglass hut because you are not limited by many rules, it allows you to be creative and make the best of your judgement. Also if you love to sell, this is your place to shine.

    Cons

    I absolutely hate the management, very unstructured and very unprofessional at times, its sad because the job could be so much better! They care a lot about making numbers, not a lot of clientling
