    Optical lab tech

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a good group of core employees. If your willing to learn and move around with the work you can become a called team player.

    ConsLots of talking and not a lot of doing. Poor communication from management. Letting some people do thing and then letting others take the fall.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together and treat everyone the same no favoritism

    HOYA Vision Care, NA: Going the Wrong Direction - A Company in Disarray

    Sales Management (Current Employee)

    ProsInternationally, HOYA has been a leader in product technology,

    ConsIn America standards have been lowered concerning both lab and AR technology resulting in an increase of quality issues and customer complaints. Today, HOYA is more of a follower than a leader in the industry.

    The company heavily practice’s favoritism, some employees are grossly overpaid while the majority are underpaid with little hope of change. HOYA has a long history of not providing raises/salary adjustments - stating (year after year), “it’s just not in the budget”! Recent senior management changes have brought individuals with a limited understanding of the vision care industry to the table.

    Hard to recommend this company to a friend - As stated by others, I'm also not optimistic about the outlook for HOYA with the present level of North American management

    Advice to Senior ManagementAmerican management is fraught with issues. I challenge Japanese management to take over the day-to-day operations of HOYA Vision Care, N.A.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent Pay Lots of Overtime

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey have a decent pay rate. If your interested in overtime to get a little extra cash then this is a good thing.

    ConsYou will work a lot of saturdays. They don't always give you raises every year even if you work your butt off.

    Employees are not valued.

    Finance (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThey paid average market salary. The offices were well kept. The offices are located conveniently near a major highway and the airport.

    ConsThe management is poorly trained and only promoted by seniority, not by the level of competence. Supervisors heavily practice favoritism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide all employees in supervisor positions with extensive management training. Develop sound and consistent office policies to regulate granting vacation days, promoting employees, and maintaining a pleasant work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The best company to work for in the United States.

    Line Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThis company really cares about their employees. They have great benefits and a liberal vacation policy. They also train their people in the best methods of producing eye wear. The customer always comes frist for this organization. A bunch of customers got to go on a 2 week vacation give to Greece one year!

    ConsIt is a little hard working for a Japanese company while in the United States because of the language differences, but this was overcome by taking Japanese classes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to push ahead. You guys have the best insight into the market and how to beat the competition.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
