    I worked at Transitions Optical full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Teams I worked with were very dedicated, and IT was world class. International presence makes it a great opportunity to learn how to address cultural differences in the work place. Proponent of Gallup and Strengths Finder... including leveraging resources strengths, instead of beating up their weaknesses.

    Cons

    Budget very tight. Likes moving some tasks to offshore. Since ownership has changed hands, it is a far more negative environment, and feels unsafe compared to when it had the PPG influence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be bullies, look at the benefit your management is really bringing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While owned by PPG, company had lack of innovation - R & D group was living in a time-warp. Also, very high turnover - for a company that prides itself on Gallup Workplace Award, I saw at least 8-9 quit in one of the years I worked there.

    Company is like your Aunt Sally - she gives you candy as long as you play by the rules. But if you leave, she'll punish you In other words, HR Department is vindictive, spiteful and I have seen them go after people.

    Pay is decent for Florida - and that's about it.
