    Pros

    Fast growing organization with ample opportunity to expand your career. Outstanding support to increase your knowledge in your career no matter how much experience you have. It feels like a family because of how they are concerned for your well being and your sucess.

    Cons

    With the fast growth comes some growing pains with regards to infrastructure. The organization is trying to address those growing pains but in certain areas it will take some time to overcome..

    Advice to Management

    Keep the course and don't forget that your team members are extremely important to your continued growth and success.

    Pros

    Multiple locations and that is about it.

    Cons

    Management is a boys club, despite the owner being a woman. All the DMs and GMs are buddies, so nothing ever gets done disciplinary wise on that level. All about the up sell, and profit over patient care.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feedback of your patients and your staff, especially those with boots on the ground.

    Pros

    Great benefits for employees, if trained, it is an easy job and company to work for.

    Cons

    Hard to take time off. Not a great training program for new hires. High turnover rate. If looking for a boutique feel, this is not the company, very corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Be more positive with staff, a lot of negativity from upper management about stores performances.

    Pros

    "20 word minimum" Impossible to find with this cattle/human herding they call Optometry.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid is putting it mildly. Demeaning for anyone with even a little intelligence. Consistently broken promises from ANY and ALL management on all aspects despite the smiles and calm tone. Sheer chaos every shift one way or another.

    Advice to Management

    May your conscience be your guide.

    I worked at MyEyeDr. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I really have nothing good to say

    Cons

    Two faced liars. Trainers do not know what they are doing. They hire managers that have no optical knowledge. They force employees to sell all extras that the patients do not always necessarily need. They are incredibly expensive. They have favorites and they set unrealistic goals. I was with a company they bought and we merged. Just be careful...They start out with promises but I will tell you they lie. Growing so fast buying everyone out putting people in positions that they have no clue what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to employees. Be fair. Follow through with what you say. Be realistic for the areas you are in with your pricing. Take care of your patients... Without them you will have nothing.

    Pros

    Pay is good. Commission on glasses sales, PTO, they do offer and contribute to insurance benefits, but policies are not worth the money.

    Cons

    If you like working in a stressful environment, understaffed with a high turn over, this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure there is enough staff to meet office needs. Just because people do their best in bad situations and make it work, does NOT make it a productive environment for staff or patients. Do NOT take for granted that this is acceptable.

    Pros

    Bonuses and overtime pay. Ability to move up in the company.

    Cons

    More sales and retail like than a medical practice. Lack of medical training so we are uninformed when patients ask questions.

    Advice to Management

    Give better bonuses. I've gotten a better yearly bonus at a company that I was making way less at. Also pay your employees on days we have to close due to snow. Sometimes we can't always make up the hours in the same pay period.
