    Pros

    Solstice offers a great discount on sunglasses. The starting compensation is much higher than several other retail stores. The company runs great contests for their employees.

    Cons

    The smaller boutiques run with a store manager and key holders which leaves very little room for any career development.

    Pros

    in response to the review from the corporate person: much of what is written is accurate and senior management is aware of the lack of opportunity from within. However the reviewer is not correct about no movement from the field to the corporate area. There have been several employees who moved from the field to the corporate NYC location and there has been 1 employee who successfully moved from a store manager position to a Safilo Product Manager posiion. It is fully recognized that opportunities from a store manager to a district manager have been limited. In 2012 substanital monies have been dedicated to the creation of area managers and co manager positions exactly designed as succession to the position of District Manager. We look forward to adding these positions starting immediately and continuing throughout 2012 and beyond

    Cons

    no more downsides than any other company
