    I have been working at Specsavers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The management is style seems a lot better in Australia. There were a lot of incentives and bonuses, healthy competition between employees. Training and support given as needed. A lot of encouragement in terms of self development and working in a team. The managers listened and made you feel valued. No naming and shaming!

    Cons

    There was some pressure to meet sales targets, but they would address you individually about their concerns.
