    I worked at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time

    Pros

    Comraderie, good health benefits, matching 401K up to 6%, good HR department, beautiful grounds (in Center Valley, PA new corporate headquarters), flex-time hours, their focus on enhancing people's lives every day and helping people enjoy the continuum of life by being a precision technology leader, designing and delivering innovative solutions in its core business in various areas. Believed in family coming first whenever there was a family issue that you needed a day off for.

    Cons

    Too much turnover at the executive level of management, poor security with very valuable equipment, not very good role models of management with constant criticism instead of commendation when a job was well done, did not have backup in some of my responsibilities when I was on vacation, so when I came back from vacation, I would be overloaded with work, and my boss would sometimes give me a hard time giving me overtime to make it up. Had many town hall meetings keeping employees abreast of what was happening within the company in all divisions, including the parent company in Japan,

    Advice to Management

    Give people more positive feedback when they do a good job; have more training in areas where people need it. Give better percentage of raises.
