Endless opportunities for growth.Excellent benefits very rewarding salary , work and home life balance. The training has gotten 100% better.

Wouldn’t want to work for another company.

    Cons

    I currently don’t have to many cons at this time. How ever if I was asked this question 9 months ago it would have had a completely different response.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the changes you have made in the past 6 months or more and you will continue to have dedicated employees with a passion to grow with a s successful organizations such as yours. I am honored to be a part of the Orlando team for the past 15 months.

    Pros

    I love my patients and my work family! Working with and for the LASIK Vision Institute is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I look forward to going to work everyday. I enjoy helping my community by translating and giving the gift of sight.

    Cons

    Working the occasional Sundays bothered me but seeing patient outcomes after 1-day post-ops makes it worthwhile.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with continuing education. We learn a lot!

    I worked at The Lasik Vision Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers at the center, good health benefits, great trainer down at corporate.

    Cons

    Upper management’s demands for high sales and their lack of integrity to get those sales. I was asked numerous times by regional management to lie to get the sale. There is also no consistency between locations. Each center runs things differently and there seem to be different rules for different center based on your relationship with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    When working in patient care, the patient’s needs should come first. Each center is always short staffed and upper management was constantly begging for anyone and everyone to travel at the last minute.

    Pros

    Supportive management. Options to travel to other centers to help. Pay was good. I worked with a fun team.

    Cons

    Not enough staff available to cover patient load. Other centers we constantly asking for people to come help as well. Patients complained about extremely long wait times because of it. Yet company refused to hire more staff. No continuing education.

    I worked at The Lasik Vision Institute full-time

    Pros

    The Brookfield office was great however each office is managed differently. The Office manager was smart, helpful, great with customers and staff. Good pay, good benefits, good staff. GREAT schedule.

    Cons

    Each office is managed differently so I heard rumors about other offices with poor managers or a new manager every 3 months. Corporate office places some unnecessary restrictions like corporate approval to order supplies like pens, paper, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate office should trust the local managers more if that specific manager has a proven record of success.

    Management disregards employee complaints, allows unprofessional doctors to continue to work, hostile work environment, not paid for holidays like stayed in employee hand book. Schedule and expectations constantly change, huge turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, provide a safe working environment, give raises to dedicated employees . Pay employees additional hourly rate for traveling out of state for surgery help.

    Pros

    Salary, if you can get 40 hours n

    Cons

    Pressure from Corporate, Managers who are hired from other industries, knowing nothing about ophthalmology. Putting young girls that have no idea how to talk to people or treat them in Assistant Manager and Manager positions.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate, take time to hire the right managers, not just anyone because you can't get anyone. Treat your employees with respect. If you have a problem, speak to them with respect, do not badger them, attack them verbally and not allow them to talk. You then create a hostile environment and people leave the position. That's why you can't keep people. They are afraid of loosing their jobs and the environment is unstable.
