    Pros

    I have been in management at America's Best and Lenscrafters- MyEyeDr actually cares and allows employees to do what's best the patient. Commission structure is amazing compared to other opticals. Most offices have good hours no early morning or late nights. We are always closed Sundays which is almost impossible to find in larger optical companies. Bonuses at end of month are hefty if you are good at your job and your office meets goal.

    Cons

    Changes often in company, some offices get better treatment or product than others

    Advice to Management

    Focus on day to day operations to deliver better service.

    I worked at MyEyeDr. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discounted glasses, free eye exam once a year, some PTO. That's all.

    Cons

    -Being expected to work almost every single Saturday
    -Unacceptably poor office communication
    -Employees ruled by fear and punishment
    -No recognition for successes or hard work
    -Constant criticism
    -Poor office culture
    -Managers unfit for any supervisory position
    -Employee blaming and zero accountability
    -Nonexistent training
    -Money hungry company
    -Terrible external lab
    -Obsession with reports that takes away from patient care
    -Intrusive cold calling patients who have already been called 10 times before and begged to be taken off of our call list
    -Way too much focus on the numbers despite what our patients patient's concerns are
    -Many more...

    Advice to Management

    I don't know at this point. You need to reconfigure a great deal things to set this company right. Many employees have left or are constantly contemplating it. They're just not telling you. Really listen to what employees have to say about their general managers, investigate, and hire new managers! I don't know...maybe managers who actually have experience, accountability, and maturity. That would be a start.

    I worked at MyEyeDr. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free exams and eyewear, I guess

    Cons

    This is really a terrible company to work for. I drank the MED juice for years and can't believe I lasted that long...It's bad folks. Reading the reviews and seeing all of the people trying to say that this company cares about their people and that there is room for growth is a joke to me. It's clear that they were asked to write a positive review because everyone know that the reviews on here are lower than a 2.5. It's talked about in the offices on a regular basis..duh! From what I've seen the majority of the people who got promoted are now either no longer at the company or have been demoted to a lower job.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a complete overhaul..money isn't everything! Take care of your employees and everything else will come.
