International mentality and orientation career wise , mostly meritocratic (but still an Italian company so exceptions..)

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Padova (Italy)

I have been working at Safilo full-time for more than a year

ProsOk benefits/ specialized in luxury segment/ international orientation and career prospects/ differentiated sales channels and segments/ overall business culture pleasant and family-like

ConsLong hours/ low pay/ too many management layers/ already at middle management way too much time eaten up by endless meetings and too little contact with clients

Advice to Senior ManagementProduct coordination needs to understand reality of market more (too much design-focused) and so dialogue with commercial side / sales force is necessary (seems not to exist at the moment)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
