    I have been working at Eyefinity full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Eyefinity is a wonderful place to work. I’ve been with the company over 10 years and you could not find a better place to work. We are always developing new software products for our market therefore we as employees are always learning new products.

    The benefits are A + from healthcare to the 401k matching and profit sharing.

    Vsp Global our parent company is very supportive of Eyefinity.

    Cons

    Sure every company has its cons but overall nothing that stands out.

    Advice to Management

    The president of Eyefinity does a great job and has been in the position a long time, keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Eyefinity (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Small independent "company" within the greater VSP org allows for flexibility beyond your stated role, leading to greater career opportunities. Solid market leadership in legacy products in a stable industry funds next gen products, allowing for a variety of opportunities to gain experience. Incredibly charismatic President in Steve Baker balanced out by the more serious but technically accomplished and extremely intelligent COO. Finally brought in a world class VP of Sales (top of the industry worldwide but they had to go to Ireland to find him). The rest of the senior management team is now working well under these three, all good people.

    Cons

    Eyefinity is not always granted an appropriate level of resources from the parent company to achieve it's full potential or even adequately maintain some shared service operations/functions. Also recovering from a "hangover" associated with bad hires at the senior level in the last few years. Even though all these people are now gone, it has scarred some of the longer term employees who suffered under a toxic regime.

    Advice to Management

    I'm happy to hear from Steve himself in recent meetings that hiring at the management level is going to focus on cultural fit as well as technical competence. Keep it up, and keep Eyefinity on the right path.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, collaboration, and success. Largest Eyecare software provider in the country. Unique and challenging projects with many twist and turns makes work fun and not stagnant. CEO is magnificent, best I have worked for.

    Cons

    Too many balls in the air. Not enough celebrating of wins. One IT Manager that is rude and extremely uncollaborative to anyone below them, literally shushing people and being clearly egotistical and consistently difficult. Anyone working for this individual is absolutely deflated and frustrated. Sad that management allows this person to continue in this role, as everyone is aware of this person and their disrespectful style to others.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on key objectives, wins, and reassign the bad apple IT Manager to not manage staff, or manage out.

    Advice to Management

    Hello Management. What y'all been upto. I been running all over hell's half acre and you aint listenin. This guy in the management, He's got a burr in his saddle and he aint even trippin no more. What to tell y'all about this guy. he is lower than a snake's belly in a wagon rut. When folks ask for promotion he squeezes a quarter so tight the eagle screams . He’s so cheap he wouldn’t give a nickel to see Jesus ridin’ a bicycle. And i bet you know a thing or two about bikes. Bless his heart. Gone are the good ol days . Now it's all caravan laden demagogues who just want to take a knee. couldn’t buy a hummingbird on a string for a nickel. That's a hard workin guy talkin. we will keep fightin till the old lady starts singing. Unless you better wake up and smell some falafel. All these positive reviews ain't real, just sain. Two more years like this and you might just call the place 'sissy' land coz its full of sissies.

    Pros

    Geez, that's a tough one.

    - Cake days are cool. tech events are fun too.
    - Play rap music during meetings.
    - Loads of Fried chicken and beans.

    Cons

    hmm...

    - For starters CEO is a poser, spends more time Biking then being in the office.
        #NOTCOOL.
    - No one is serious about work. Most of them are posers. No wonder all the
       products are going red.
    - High school revisited .. seriously a lot of amateurish stuff all around.

    Pros

    - VSP
    - Health and other Benefits ( again VSP )
    - 401K

    Cons

    - Higher management, especially CEO is corrupt
    - Wannabe diamond awardees
    - Very old processes
    - Very high iteration
    - No growth
    - no innovation
    - Legacy technology

    Advice to Management

    @VSP - Restructure the management and look into the corruption. The people at the top are cooking books for their benefits. Same people get promotions and incentives again and again and the deserving hard workers are left unrewarded. Work - life balance is way out of place. For people working in Eyefinity, VSP looks like a dreamy Disneyland. Please help ..!!!!

    Pros

    - It is part of VSP, which is awesome
    - good industry exposure

    Cons

    - Upper management is corrupt and biased
    - No push for quality in the products
    - Processes are all over the place
    - Higher management is very out of touch with real technologies and challenges
    - Not very agile
    - Loads of bugs all around

    Advice to Management

    Advice to VSP management, please take control and clean the mess. The folks at Eyefinity are spoiling the environment big time. Major dig in is needed if someone wants to make a change. I have tried in my capacity to complain to everyone I could but no one seems to care. I called the helplines, put suggestions in the suggestion box but with no use. Would be great if VSP management take over. I know we have a new CEO at VSP, i hope he makes a change that is needed.

    Pros

    Cake Day, rafting trip, majority of the employees work ethic, most clients are amazing, some of the supervisors are the best out there!

    Cons

    VERY reactive culture. If you are not a favorite, you are not going to make it. You can essentially do whatever you want (no worries on deadlines, no worries on language, no worries on ramifications on sexually harassing someone)...

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. Stop being reactive. Start listening... Evaluate your senior management....
