    Pros

    Good culture, laid back. Great products. A leader in research and design. Innovative, not settling. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Senior sales management has come from Pharmaceutical industry, and has not quite grasped ophthalmic lenses and lab services. Very slow to identify opportunities or change direction. Don't seem to value input from experienced team members. Separation of Sales and Operations, yet a message of "one Hoya". Overly aggressive sales goals, often requiring 20-30% growth at plan.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make it more complicated, make it simple. Be more agile, and embrace process improvement. Year over year goals must be realistic. Better engagement with sales team, and customers. Need more "Barneys".

    Pros

    family oriented, steady schedule, team environment, insurance and PTO are competetive

    Cons

    Training isn't the greatest, low pay for a tech position, little to no recognition from corporate gurus, typical corporate job where sales and management get decent pay checks and production gets the shaft, quality and quantity have no influence over compensation, no bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who actually is reliable, consistent and actually making the business profitable.

    Pros

    Plenty of work to keep you busy, but not to the point of overload. Very nice friendly staff and management. If your a go getter and willing to learn its a great way to learn a skilled trade at any age or stage in your life. Management goes out or their way to thank you for your work! That is rare these days! Hoya really does appreciate the employees. And the people that complain about pay, should go! There are plenty of people who would LOVE to work here. Also management is always open to ideas and your views.

    Cons

    Not everyone shares my thoughts on being thankful for employment and pride in the work place. Could clean up their work areas etc. before leaving. Typical negative nancies that are everywhere, that will move on eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe be a little more assertive in telling folks to clean up. Also, ask workers what they think their strengths are, I see many missed opportunities with the wrong folks in certain departments that would thrive in others.

    Pros

    Managers work with you when you need to schedule a doctor's appointment, etc. Non stressful environment Not a lot of micromanagement Great work life balance. Strictly 8-5 job. Rarely, if ever work weekends. Family oriented. If you're working really late, they encourage you to go home and be with your family

    Cons

    Not any room for growth within the company No big promotions or raises Only one bathroom Older company. Not a lot of young professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Value your current employees. Hiring new people every other year is just going to cost you more money in the long run, so you might as well invest in the people that are currently doing a good job

    Pros

    Most of the fellow employees are great love the hours Mon- Fri 8am-5pm with a hour lunch. the management is friendly and willing to address any issues you have

    Cons

    Some employees get special treatment. the employees that lack training are just left there to have other employees pick up the slack. Lack of Appreciation for employees that are willing to go the extra mile. Morale seems low in certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the dead weight. Have more encouragement. Better pay will boost morale quite a bit.


  11. If you want to grow within a company, this is definitely NOT the place.

    Pros

    Health insurance has low deductibles. You can look at it as a short time thing in order to get the experience other good companies require.

    Cons

    Based on the Texas work force commissions description of Harassment: Ethnic slurs, racial jokes, offensive or derogatory comments, or other verbal or physical conduct based on a person’s race constitute unlawful harassment if the conduct creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment, or interferes with the individual's work performance. All of the above happen daily, HR ignores the issue, and the Dallas lab ignores even the speak up line complains.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid a lawsuit and take these claims more serious.
