I worked at Solstice Sunglass Boutiques

Pros

Company is great at training and showing how the organization of a small company should work. The best Benefits that you will ever receive at a low price. The Corporate Level staff is knowledgable on how to do their jobs.

Cons

If you are in the Corporate Level, your chance of growth is zero. There are only 15 to 20 people that make up the Solstice Corporate Level because they have a "Shared Service" with their Parent Company Safilo USA. There is no way to hop from Solstice to Safilo, which means there is no way to grow or advance.

IF YOU ARE A STORE MANAGER, FORGET TRYING TO BECOME A DISTRICT MANAGER. In the history of Solstice, never has a SM been promoted to a DM and stayed there. They only hire DM's from outside. Hence why they are losing Top selling Managers left and right. So get in and make your numbers and get out in order to grow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start to hire within the company to promote past the level of Store Manager. Otherwise, you will not be able to keep your key people. Don't assume that someone at a certain level is ok doing the same thing day after day without extra responsibilities. They will find somewhere else to move to when they are bored out of their mind.
