    I worked at Optos full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The technology is amazing and the people I work with were great.

    Cons

    Not a lot of advancement growth for females. Plus, it looks like as soon as they promote someone they lay them off a few months later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your lower level employees with the same respect you treat upper management when laying someone off.

    I worked at Optos

    Pros

    Great Medical device experience in Optometry in engineering, training, and sales. Possible advancement opportunities, business travel (everywhere). Great benefits. Good people

    Cons

    You can travel and work weekend, after hours and management won't notice or investigate. It's very easy to be missed in the hard work you do for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the people who do more than the 9-5. Understand that Field Service is more important than you realize. Find stars in the company that you meet outside of the conventions.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Melbourne (Australia)

    I worked at Optos full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Have great technology in a specific health sector, that is impressive to many ocular specialists.

    Cons

    Outside of this specific area they suffer, could almost be seen as a one trick pony. Publicly well known exclusivity agreement with large retail chain hurt other markets, and as a result went through 7 sales staff in the 4 regions in 15 months. Lots of unhappiness and insecurity in that department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    USA style management practices do not work in AUS. Recognise market shifts and not to and force previous forecasts in other market segments that are declining due to massive success in another.
