Pros

The benefits are better than most, but are still inadequate. The opportunity for advancement are excellent, but a lot of management is based on friends promoting friends, instead of promotions based on capabilities and qualifications The company does have the capabilities of transfers to other states. So you are pretty flexible in moving to states where the economy is better.

Cons

There are times when you are transferred to other locations, and extended travel isn't compensated. A lot of "opticians" are under educated to meet the needs of the patients they are supposed to be guiding. The education level is based more on sales rather than meeting the patients medical and economical needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more objective toward advancement instead of subjective. Increase retail wages, slightly, and eliminate commission. It is detrimental to patient oriented sales.

    Pros

    Very good leadership development and career planning. Strong goal oriented performance driven culture. Career development plans are implement and followed up on. As with all retail and field based organizations, leadership within a territory or region varies. Field personnel has decent support to operate the business as compared to competitors within the industry. The company does support trying new things when things are not working, albeit to slowly.

    Cons

    Culture is such that at times learning to speak the buzz and being properly connected overshadows actually performing demonstrated leadership competencies. As the organization has grown, like many, decision are directed to politics, jockeying for power, and what looks best to the next level of leadership. While ROI is an important factor is becoming less specifically driving the vision and more about "reporting"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek the feedback outside of the circle to balance with those who are trusted advisers. Be responsible for your emotional wake.

    Not a bad job overall.

    Pros

    For an optometrist who prefers to earn a salary instead of owning a practice, Luxottica is a great company to work for. Compared to being employed as an associate by a private optometrist, a corporation will provide much more comprehensive benefits. Unlike many HMOs that employ optometrists, we are able to practice full-scope optometry from specialty contact lens fit to refractive surgery co-management.

    Cons

    I agree with the Manager from Chicago about downsides of the company. I chuckled when I read the review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than visiting stores to provide feedback, Senior Management should actually work as one of us at the store level once in a while to remind themselves how a store actually runs on the bare bones staffing we get. They will be able to come up with much more realistic models and goals for the stores to work towards.
