    Pros

    Bonus, 401k. Insurance. Vacation time

    Cons

    Hourly pay is not competitive. Do not exoect a cost of living raise every year...they give you a lump sum payment

    Advice to Management

    You are solely looking good to the higher ups because the production workers do everything.

    Pros

    Just purchased by Essilor and buying my time interviewing while awaiting my severance package if I stay that long

    Cons

    No direction since acquisition. Former leaders left or were let go. Now, still poor leadership by a new guy with operations background in supply chain. The acting temporary General Manager of No America falls asleep in meetings and has no knowledge of the business except a focus on profit and rapidly increasing business to pay off the high cost ( over payment) of purchasing Transitions. It's a totally different culture and very depressing. This is coming from a director level employee so hopefully this holds some validity. Understand the former employee's severance packages were horrible compared to corporate standards of other professional companies. Morale is horrible and it's due to impending doom that new owner Essilor will soon clean house again. Essilor has less than desirable reviews from existing employees so there's no hope there.

    Advice to Management

    Design transition plans and have strong leadership in place before take over so remaining team had sense of direction. Get your act together !


  3. It use to be an enjoyable job.
