    I have been working at For Eyes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at For Eyes for a little over 2 years now. They've gotten rid of the "good old boys" club and the turnover has stopped. The new leadership team all seem to have experience running large companies and you can tell by the way the operate. The first thing they did was move out of their assigned offices and sit with all of us in the open seating area. The previous team was very distant and you couldn't go up to them and speak with them. You can now laugh and smile in the office, with the previous leadership team it wasn't allowed, you had to be quiet. All the new leaders are approachable and you have access to them.

    Everything is about "metrics" and measuring things. Previously we did things based on what people felt, which created a lot of work when it didn't work. For the first time in the companies history all employees are now going to be getting bonuses (finally!). They are spending money on stores, the lab and headquarters. Very happy to see that they are promoting people who were already working here, not just brining in new people, good sign!

    Cons

    - Changes and lots of them.
    - The new leadership team likes to move fast and some people are not used to that speed, it's hard for me to keep up with.
    - Company is owned by GrandVision, based in Europe and they want things done a certain way.
    - It was awful that a lot of people were let go when the new leadership came in (but to be fair they've been replaced with newer people, some of I think are better than the previous people).
    - The long term employees are shrinking everyday.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep having the town-hall meetings.
    - Give us free contacts.
    - Match our 401Ks dollar for dollar.

    I have been working at For Eyes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New management team is transparent and driven to chart new path for the company, establish strong controls, and grow fast. Corporate office has hard working culture but flexible. Tons of upside and opportunity under new leadership team. Benefits have been improved, I heard 401k match is approved.

    Cons

    The legacy issues are being addressed, seem to be gaining momentum with improving systems. Definitely no room for slackers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recruiting strong people and upgrading the talent, stay close to the store personnel to ensure same culture change in the corporate office is also happening in the stores.
