    Current Employee - Territory Sales Representative

    Pros

    Freedom As an Independent Contractor, you have the freedom to make your own schedule. As long as you are out there working and making your numbers, they are not on your back-in my experience. It is a strong optical company with a great reputation in the industry and excellent products.

    Cons

    You are an Independent Contractor. There are absolutely no benefits. You pay your own taxes/retirement. And the big one, is the car and gas expenses. There is a lot of driving in most territories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have always liked the management team that I have been involved with.

    Pros

    Most employees on the team are very polite and respectful. International and luxury brand experience is a win. Premier eyewear company with loyal employee base.

    Cons

    Extremely demanding and disorganized company. Somewhat dated in systems, technology and flow between departments. Does not promote from within. Dead end!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be bold, share your vision and look to your employees at all levels as stakeholders. Communicate with your employees and involve them, don't just talk at them. They bring tremendous value to the table. US relationship with Italy is somewhat broken.
