    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Safilo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are great to work with. Great medical insurance. Along with dental and vision. 401k .. Company matches if you put in 6%

    Cons

    Gross cafeteria food. Pay is not competitive at all. Company has gone down hill since I started. Seems like the company cares less and less about employees year after year. Certain departments don't communicate with others like they should. No growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    We appreciate the meetings about how well the company is doing. But hearing that last year the company made over a billion dollars, but are clear that there will not be a raise or yearly bonus any longer, it's a bit disheartening.

    I worked at Safilo full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn the Eyewear business from A-Z and on a global scale. Good packages.

    Cons

    At that time the culture was extremely "Northern Italian" and male-dominated. Short-term focus on results due to pressure on the numbers / share price. Believe this may be changing under new CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the front line more - sometimes they may be right! Be more inclusive and promote more female executives to balance the "macho culture"
