Pros

The benefits are better than most, but are still inadequate. The opportunity for advancement are excellent, but a lot of management is based on friends promoting friends, instead of promotions based on capabilities and qualifications The company does have the capabilities of transfers to other states. So you are pretty flexible in moving to states where the economy is better.

Cons

There are times when you are transferred to other locations, and extended travel isn't compensated. A lot of "opticians" are under educated to meet the needs of the patients they are supposed to be guiding. The education level is based more on sales rather than meeting the patients medical and economical needs.

Advice to Management

Be more objective toward advancement instead of subjective. Increase retail wages, slightly, and eliminate commission. It is detrimental to patient oriented sales.

    Pros

    Very good leadership development and career planning. Strong goal oriented performance driven culture. Career development plans are implement and followed up on. As with all retail and field based organizations, leadership within a territory or region varies. Field personnel has decent support to operate the business as compared to competitors within the industry. The company does support trying new things when things are not working, albeit to slowly.

    Cons

    Culture is such that at times learning to speak the buzz and being properly connected overshadows actually performing demonstrated leadership competencies. As the organization has grown, like many, decision are directed to politics, jockeying for power, and what looks best to the next level of leadership. While ROI is an important factor is becoming less specifically driving the vision and more about "reporting"

    Advice to Management

    Seek the feedback outside of the circle to balance with those who are trusted advisers. Be responsible for your emotional wake.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and personal growth

    Cons

    No family career balance, a bunch of micro managers at the h.o.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to thinking about the people. You used to have a great company. I'm sad to say that the almighty buck has taken over where caring for people once was.
