    I have been working at Optical Express full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team in store of hard working people

    Cons

    Optical Express focuses on sales(naturally) and customer care-although the two can be conflicted! However they have yet to learn the crucial lesson that unless staff are treated properly they will move on. So,continual staff turnover,management changes etc.

    I have been working at Optical Express full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Optical Express has a competitive salary, great bonus opportunities and career progression available. I have a great team who work for me and a great senior management team. Don't get me wrong like a lot of jobs there are days when you feel frustrated, angry and at times deflated however my management team are approachable and always find times to motivate you and allow you to make changes and support your ideas.

    Cons

    Communication could be better at times across the business.

    I have been working at Optical Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Optical Express is a challenging place to work. I joined the company as a student part time, once I finished my studies, I continued working full time to progress and develop my career. The company has great opportunities that I've been lucky to take advantage of. I work with a great team of people. I have always felt supported in any role or department that I have worked in. The technology that the company has invested in and optical solutions that is on offer to patients is life changing. I am proud to be part of an organisation that makes such a positive impact.

    Cons

    I do believe training should happen more frequently. A structure should be in place to continually train staff throughout their employment; not just when they first start working with the company. This would be beneficial and help staff progress.
