    I worked at TLC Vision full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Newest laser system. Better surgical platform than competitors. Nicer offices and surgery rooms. Supposed to be a premier choice for lasik/prk

    Cons

    Over worked, under paid and under appreciated. It's a corporation and upper management 100% fits that bill. I would never recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring more about the clinical staff who actually run the business.

    I have been working at TLC Vision full-time

    Pros

    Best technology in the business; strong commitment to patient care and outcomes; best and most talented surgeons in the business work with TLC; lots of TLC "lifers" (not a lot of turnover); many employees are like my second family; strong promote from within policy; strong support from upper management; employees are treated fairly and with respect.

    Cons

    Work life balance can sometimes become a little unbalanced.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage your staff, provide support and training, and continue the commitment to patient care.

    Great people, fun work atmosphere, work location

    Benefits were just okay, stability- not knowing for sure if you would be at job long term

    Advice to Management

    Filter communication to ALL that need the information. Make every effort to keep your good workers. Crosstrain more employees to help them grow in their jobs and learn new responsibilities.
