I have been working at OpticsPlanet full-time

Pros

- Successful company (growing 20-30% every year) with good job security.
- If you show ability and initiative you will get opportunities to take on more.
- Strong upper management and good people to learn from.
- Company is in constant state of growth and improvement.

Cons

- Disappointed that we eliminated the ability to take partial days off...why give people less flexibility?
- Benefits are just ok, definitely not great...though there is a good amount of vacation/flex time off.

Advice to Management

Be willing to lose money on a transaction in order to keep a customer.
Reinstate partial days off and unpaid time off.

    Pros

    OP won "Best 10 workplaces in Chicago area" this year. Personally, I think that this company is providing all its employees with a great chance to move on in life. It will teach you something new everyday, and most importantly, you will be able to take that knowledge with you for the rest of your life. It is supportive and very helpful when it comes to your work place or your personal life. They are willing to listen to your needs and take necessary actions to make it better. There is great opportunity for growth. And, last but no least, OP will become your family. All people there are very nice and friendly, and everyday you will feel happy to wake up and go to work! I grew up in this company, became a professional in this company, raised a child while working for the company! I recommend everyone to at least give this company a chance to be your employer, because once you do, I am sure you will love it as much as I did!

    Cons

    I have nothing that I can add here!

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Keep it up! Miss you!
