    Pros

    Nice environment, good office location in midtown, talented designers working there and strong development teams. Fun office vibe.

    Cons

    Lack of management and clear hierarchy. Potential for isolation within the company if not connected to one of the larger creative teams. Potential for communication breakdown.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage the design teams with the most support to reach out to the other creatives and offer mentorship and guidance. More training for new employees is needed.

  5. CSRs get the bad end of the deal here, if you can work somewhere else.

    I have been working at Marchon Eyewear full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, could be more honestly -- this is NY after-all. Designer frame discounts. Fun little treats like free lunch or themed days.

    Cons

    They don't care about employee advancement, not in the least bit. Won't let current employees alter their schedules beyond a 11:30-8 shift but will allow new people to have a 9-6 schedule. Employees punished for MANAGEMENT'S discrepancies. Doesn't add up if people have accumulated more time and were told upon hire EVERYONE would do that shift, but they LIE. Unfortunately, they don't want to see that accommodating your employees makes them work harder and enjoy where they're working. Management has favoritism. Certain people are golden children. Occurrences for being sick or in the hospital are plan FOOLISH and having to schedule time off for life experiences and being denied is equally foolish as well. Things need to change at this place ASAP. They write you up for everything it seems, even breathing wrong if it doesn't comply with how they want you to exhale. If you're a nobody they're definitely not looking out for you no matter how much you try to stay on their good side. It's a shame, I was so excited to work and grow here. Now I want to run away as fast as I can.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be reevaluated, ASAP. Practices are backwards and no one wants to stay at your company if things don't change. I respect rules, but getting written up for getting sick if you don't have time or are in the hospital is RIDICULOUS. No one plans to get sick or have a heart attack or die . . people shouldn't be penalized for being human. It's inhumane. Work with your employees schedule so they want to give back and not run away.

    Pros

    I have worked for Marchon for 2 years and have been very happy with them. I find them to be fair and treat you well.

    Cons

    Being self employed. Some of the things we have to pay for I question at times and think we should get some type of expense reimbursement

    Advice to Management

    Praise your reps. Many of us put in some long hours and a lot of road time.

    Pros

    -Great benefits -People you work with are very friendly and knowledgable -Team work is at a high and everyone helps everyone with grace -Ability to volunteer throughout the US - CAKE DAY

    Cons

    -You are basically doing 2-for-1 jobs - Hard to get a job ( very competitive) - There aren't many other cons except that Marchon and Altair Call centers will be merging into 1 which requires everyone to learn the other companies policies and procedures which means you'll have a 3-for-1 job

    Advice to Management

    I best advice to management is to see the positives in each employee and to adjust their responsibilities to their strongest assets to accomplish more work in a timely manner
