    I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits. The medical device division continues to set records. Blue jeans all the time is a great idea,

    Cons

    Very anal retentive leadership. Finance department full of good people but everything is compartmentalized. Like working in a morgue. They'll be shrinking the size of the cubes shortly. That'll be great for morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to how directors tteat their direct reports.
