    I worked at Safilo full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn the Eyewear business from A-Z and on a global scale. Good packages.

    Cons

    At that time the culture was extremely "Northern Italian" and male-dominated. Short-term focus on results due to pressure on the numbers / share price. Believe this may be changing under new CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the front line more - sometimes they may be right! Be more inclusive and promote more female executives to balance the "macho culture"

    No opinion of CEO
