    Medical Eyeglass Center

    Good morning,

    Medical Eyeglass Center is in the process of taking over management where I and many are employed. I don't have a good feeling about this. Is anybody familiar with them. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you, plvt16

    I worked for MEC for 2 years (length of contract with practice). Pay was above average but benefits were terrible. One thing to know - MEC requires practice to sign a one year non-compete clause regarding their employees. If practice and MEC don't renew contract (typically 2 years), you will not be able to work at that practice again for a year. I know this from personal experience.

    As others experience this and the new private equity companies all say they are not Essilux owned ask if the are "Partnered with" the Big E.
