    I worked at Optical Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with some very talented staff and was proud to be part of and to have worked on the new brand re-launch and associated activity.

    Good level of investment and budgets for projects and activity.

    Direct line manager was a pleasure to work for.

    Cons

    Some level of difficulty re engaging others within the business to help on projects and activity. Found certain members of the business outdated in their approach but overall, majority of staff were great to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Enthuse and inspire employees with good and honest feedback - you'll reap the rewards!

    Also to review the amount of holidays the company provides - not in line with most businesses and can be a big put off to anyone new joining the business.
