Pros

One Sight program provides lots of terrific charitable opportunities to help others. Large company that can provide terrific amount of resources. Lot of nice smart people worked here,

Cons

Lots of politics and conflicting brand interests that can make it hard to get things done. Poor performers were retained and upper management in some brands were part of the problem in this area.

Advice to Management

Stick with a new program for a bit to give associates a chance to make it work vs pulling the trigger if results are not immediate although you should not retain poor performers as long as sometimes happened.

    Pros

    Decent healthcare and benefits, flexible schedule (with a good GM), nice associates/people in our region, new glasses yearly

    Cons

    -corporate doesn't give you adequate hours to run your store
    -upper management is disconnected from reality and how it works in the real world
    -out of touch with economic realities regarding $ goals/thinks we can do 15-20% more per year when people are losing jobs, money tighter than ever and optical market oversaturated in some areas... lack of commissions hurt both morale and pocketbooks
    -puts too much pressure on stores/employees to "bring in business"!.. that is primarily the doctors (appts) and company's job to do w/marketing etc; it is the opticians job to take care of them once they are IN the store.. they can't do everything.. back to item's 1 and 2 above! Lack of understanding of what has to be done on a daily basis.. they seem to only look at the numbers, not the day to day work with patients and customer service
    -lack of consideration and support
    -constant badgering from some RM's to produce $

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking so greedy and unappreciative - take better care of your employees.. you have alot of good ones who you could lose ..stop the payroll/sales agenda unless it is extremely low on a regular basis.. the over and under should average out on a monthly basis
    - put people in upper management who have actually done the job and have some understanding of what it takes to operate a optical store.. not jewelery
     - set more realistic goals for stores to reach
     - get better lab quality
     - give older stores a facelift and increase the frame options/ update styles more often.. help us draw in customers
