    Pros

    The best thing about Essilor is the compensation due to the high end products that are sold. The community involvement would be another positive aspect. Pretty decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    It may sound like a cliche,but the company is truly a good 'ole' boy network. Essilor acquires a vast amount smaller optical companies, and with that comes the intergration of inviduals who are grandfathered into the company with life time contracts.(Extreme nepatism). Needless to say, it is a total recipe for disaster to incorporate a "mom & pop" philosophy into a corporate structure.
    If you are looking for innovation, don't stop here. The company is extremely prehistoric in terms of system applications, and processes. It is difficult to learn anything. No formal training. It is very much a "hit the ground running" type of atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Join the 21st century. The processes are broken. The systems are old. A lot will be lost financially if you don't.
