    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 worked at Safilo as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Very little BS. Very autonomous workplace.

    Cons

    If company drops/loses lines, your income suffers; You are in direct competition with your workmates; other companies in industry provide better compensation plans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Italian corporate owner needs to assess what it gives the US partner--Sales managers are poorly paid and must work a territory to make any money. This means the rep in that territory loses out on the accounts the manager keeps for himself. If you are a rep with unpopular name brands, your compensation is below minimum wage after paying your own expenses.
