Draining - It's sad from a longtime employees viewpoint with these layoff's and corporate scandals to see this.

I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

They will pay the money if you work hard but you must demand it. It will not be given freely.. Some good people to work with. Some career advancement.

Cons

They have a clause "business need" in your employment contract that trumps every employee right given in the contract. It's vague and can be applied in every way you can imagine. It has become management's instrument to force"non-mandatory" overtime, work scope changes or any other need they choose.

Seems like the business plan gets re written every time management changes. Have seen many key employees just give up and go elsewhere.

We have always been a difficult company for the end user to deal with. Great products of the past has always made it worthwhile. Lack of any real innovation in the past few years has allowed the competition to grab market share.
