    I have been working at VSP Vision Care full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Incredibly strong culture, strong support of work/life balance, fair pay and good benefits. Extremely generous 401K package.

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive and more control should be given to lower level management to influence internal compensation when warranted.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on empowering employees at all levels, showing trust and faith in those you've hired and trained.
