    I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time for more than a 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.

    I applied online - interviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was comfortable. The questions were more about your recent work not all the "how did you handle a situation when" kind of questions. The managers were very interested in hearing my background and experience instead of putting me in the hot seat.
