Was once great, now...
Sr Director of Operations, Sunglass Hut Outlets (Former Employee) – Mason, OH – August 7, 2018
As the company folds into the Luxottica / Essilor merger it is becoming more and more difficult to stay optimistic about the future of the NA corporate office staying in Mason, OH. Many upper-management were asked to move to NYC offices and many declined and took severance packages and moved on to other opportunities. The company over-engineered eliminating leadership and employee layers hiding behind a "shared-services" moniker. This created not only vacuums of leadership, but added increased workload to the already full plates of the remaining workers and leaders. The separate retail divisions (LensCrafters, Sunglass Hut, Oakley, Ray-Ban, etc) also now lack personality and direction for the future. We're currently "existing". Morale is at an all-time low as of this writing as everyone continues to wonder if the Retail offices will be closed to move to Essilor headquarters in Dallas with even more elimination of jobs.
There's a cafeteria and a gym in the building.
Leadership, unknown future, expectations of work hard or else...
