    I worked at Transitions Optical full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Teams I worked with were very dedicated, and IT was world class. International presence makes it a great opportunity to learn how to address cultural differences in the work place. Proponent of Gallup and Strengths Finder... including leveraging resources strengths, instead of beating up their weaknesses.

    Cons

    Budget very tight. Likes moving some tasks to offshore. Since ownership has changed hands, it is a far more negative environment, and feels unsafe compared to when it had the PPG influence.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be bullies, look at the benefit your management is really bringing.
