    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

    I have been working at Safilo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get a weekly paycheck (albeit salaries are way below industry/function standards). Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Too many to list - but overall, if you're in brand management this is the worst possible career move. Suffice it to say that there are no clearly defined roles and responsibilities across the board. This leads to a horrendous lack of accountability, deep rooted dysfunction, and deplorable employee morale. Makes it enormously and unnecessarily difficult to get anything done. Single most frustrating experience of my entire professional career.

    No training for new hires
    No growth opportunities (company does not promote from within)
    No structure
    No work life balance
    Just - d o n o t a c c e p t a n o f f e r t o w o r k h e r e - unless you're desperate, run for your life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees - our feedback is not merely complaints. If you listen, you'll hear the solutions to the key issues that are preventing the company from achieving its goals. You'll also realize why new hires quit within 4 weeks of starting the job, and why current employees resign so often.
