Pros: further learning, free lunch on fridays, amazing patients
Cons: lack of respect in the office, uncertain lunch breaks, unclear job expectations
While I am extremely grateful for the experience and generosity, this is a stressful work place. There is a good bit of hostility between coworkers and management. A typical work day consists of nonstop activity from 8:30 am to around 6:00 pm. I've learned many new things including how to use specialized machines and learned more about the specific workings of the human eye. My coworkers are amazing people who I care for deeply. The hardest part of the job is trying to keep a happy and positive mood with all of the hostility from lack of respect amongst employees and management. The most enjoyable part of the job is the actual activity. I adore running my optical lab and working with patients one-on-one.
