I have been working at OpticsPlanet full-time

Pros

- Successful company (growing 20-30% every year) with good job security.
- If you show ability and initiative you will get opportunities to take on more.
- Strong upper management and good people to learn from.
- Company is in constant state of growth and improvement.

Cons

- Disappointed that we eliminated the ability to take partial days off...why give people less flexibility?
- Benefits are just ok, definitely not great...though there is a good amount of vacation/flex time off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be willing to lose money on a transaction in order to keep a customer.
Reinstate partial days off and unpaid time off.

    I worked at OpticsPlanet

    Pros

    - employee discount
    - relatively young and energetic employees

    Cons

    -Nepotism: if you don't belong to a certain clique, you are viewed as an outsider.

    -being happy/nice is viewed as weakness and you'll be docked for it in reviews.

    -unprofessional and elitist upper management: I was thanked me for "not crying" during my interview. He said he made most people cry.

    -Turnover is ridiculous: I think the average lifespan of an employee is about... 2 months. Just long enough to find another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if I were to give advice, no one would listen to it, so I'll just save my breath on that one.
