Hey, it's a job

Field Service Engineer (Current Employee)
Center Valley, PA

I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas

ProsThis company really does turn out excellent products. There are some really great people who contribute to a truly “worthwhile work” feeling. There is a real value in the balance of work/personal life. Company vehicles, for field service personnel only, are offered. Tuition reimbursement and various other benefit perks are available. Casual Fridays are nice.

ConsAdmittedly, this is my first exposure to a corporate working environment and sadly, it’s a rather disappointing experience. As many others on this site have commented, management (and subordinates) are certainly not encouraged to offer independent thought. There seems to be no real direction or leadership on where the company is going. In the end, the customer is often shafted due to the lack of leadership and blinders that management has become accustomed to wearing. Unless you’re in a very clear and obvious old-boy network circle, there is no real room advancement. The Health insurance is dismal at best and many of the other benefits have been dropped or modified to the point where they’re virtually not even worth offering.

Advice to Senior ManagementTAKE CHANCES! Hire new leadership, loosen the reigns, and embrace new ideas and innovation. Lastly, give employees a reason to want to “exceed expectations” – break up that Long Island network and offer promotion and opportunities to others outside this network.
