I worked at Olympus full-time for more than a year

Pros

The pay is competitive, the facilities are very nice and most of the people working there are very nice to work with. In addition, it does seem like senior management has made an effort to improve the culture of Olympus. There are a lot of decent, hard working people at Olympus.

Cons

The health insurance is great as long as you don't need anything more than a routine check up. If you end up going to the hospital, the annual deductible plus the coinsurance that you pay can add up to thousands of dollars. Also, beware of human resources. If you have a problem with your manager, HR is not there to protect you, they are going to look out for the managers. Regular employees are expendable.

    I worked at Olympus full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    high quality imaging equipment. new technologies. They have a nice single port surgical system.
    Surgeons often support the purchase of their equipment.

    Cons

    multiple ethical issues through the years. Financial issues have now become much larger issue as well. Their pricing is always higher than the competition due to the more advanced imaging. This makes sales in this economy more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i would recommend that they also take the mandatory ethical training that they require their employees to take.

    I worked at Olympus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great products in a growing industry.

    Cons

    Management by fear, Little interest in advertising their products, and if recent headlines are any indication, tons of corruption and cooking of the books by those in charge. Run away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing department management is a joke. When you have a guy called "Dr. No" because "no, we can't do that" is the most common phrase heard from him, you know you are in trouble.
