    Pros

    Great Business model that helps client managers retain their accounts. Improved in many areas (frame collection, lab TAT, system reporting).

    Cons

    Operationally challenged when it comes to being flexible and hard to implement changes the clients requests. Lacks transparency on many metrics it reports back to clients.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Davis Vision

    Pros

    -Good work atmosphere -Good people -Ability to move up if hard worker but they do weed out under performers -Always expanding due to their Empire Visionworks affiliation

    Cons

    -Union is strict and unless you are in the call center it will work against you -Call center operations is in the same area as other departments which creates two work atmospheres that are very different

    Advice to Management

    Continue to expand call center in main office suite while moving other departments to your other locations Push more responsibility to adequate middle management, Directors are incredible at what they do but you can tell they're overworked

    I have been working at Davis Vision

    Pros

    Good management. Everyone work well together. There are a lot of knowledgeable people throughout the company and willing to work with you.

    Cons

    Salaries are competitive and relevant to the market, however the only downfall is there are no bonuses and no tuition assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Consider bonuses payout for all employee and not just director and above. Invest more money in training and education. But other than this, the company is very good to work for.

    I worked at Davis Vision full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You have a good network to help you do your best.

    Cons

    If you're a CSR, Union forces everyone to start at the same wage, even those with more experience. Working hard, or being good at your work isn't always appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can really be done as long as the union is trying to keep everything "fair"

      I worked at Davis Vision

      Pros

      Good team environment. Open door policy. Davis Vision has relocated its corporate HQs to San Antonio, so most Management will consist of new faces.

      Cons

      Hard to get promoted. Although, that could change depending on what direction Management takes the company in. A lot of details are still being worked out, as far as I understand.

      Advice to Management

      I don't feel I can offer advice since I am not longer with Davis Vision in light of the relocation of its corporate Headquarters. The severance package they offered was perfectly fair.

      Pros

      Friendly & helpful coworkers & TA'S. Plenty of coaching for new employees.

      Cons

      Management talks about providing excellent service but in the end too rigid about meeting standards. New employees often get later shifts to start.

      Advice to Management

      A little more flexibility towards new emloyees meeting goals would be nice.
