    Pros

    Anniversary coupon for glasses every year
    Competitive incentive program

    Cons

    -Limited opportunity for growth or development in management ranks unless you are Italian
    -Everything is controlled from Milan; US based employees have little to no influence on decisions
     - Prefers to move quickly and clean up the mess afterwards instead of building a solid foundation
     - Very political environment

    Advice to Management

    Follow your characteristics. You hire good people, allow them to do their jobs and develop them .

    I worked at Luxottica part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great management team. Flexible hours as part time and late went to full time with benefits. They are growing and there is room for your personal career growth.

    Cons

    You do work Sundays and can be the only employee there are non Doctor days.

    Advice to Management

    Is there a way to have 4 full day shifts and alternate weekends? This would give more life/work balance.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, but not worth it.

    Cons

    CEO in Italy unilaterally makes all strategic decisions for U.S. market. Key leaders in North America have been fired or asked to leave, then replaced by Italians. Used to be a great company, but has changed dramatically for the worse in the past 2 years.
