    Pros

    Great company to work for! Olympusat has given me the opportunity to learn and grow. I have taken the opportunity to continue my education and pursue a Masters Degree because there are always advancement opportunities at Olympusat. My co workers are friendly and helpful. No one could ask for a better support team. The CEO is dedicated to his business. I am proud to work for a CEO who values his employees. My coworkers are always happy and it feels so good to be surrounded by positive people.

    Cons

    Trying to keep up with the CEO's busy travel schedule can be over whelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop treating employees like family.

    Pros

    Friendly, casual work environment. Creative and intelligent coworkers. Diversity is a positive. They value different cultures. Olympusat seeks growth of Spanish. Advancement opportunities. Supportive coworkers. If I was sick another employee would volunteer and move their work belongings to my desk and cover the phone lines as well as do their work.

    Cons

    Multi tasking of answering phone calls, greeting people, imputing data reports while maintaining shipments.

    Advice to Management

    HR Director can use an assistant.

    Pros

    Creative environment that allows you to share and implement your ideas. Great staff that is both educated and highly motivated. If you are seeking for an opportunity within the TV and Media industry, Olympusat is the place, as a fast growing and innovative company.

    Cons

    Timelines can be a little tight, but that is usually the case within this industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the communication with the staff and always encourage new ideas.

    Pros

    Long lunches, relaxed environment. People are generally friendly. Holidays off and work-life balance is good. Advancement is there, but mostly for the male staffers.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment and inept management. CEO dates his employees and then promotes them to positions out of their depth. Honestly can't believe this company is still operating.

    Advice to Management

    Act like an actual company instead of a fraternity. Respect the people that work hard. CEO getting naked at parties, dating and promoting his assistants is constantly mocked.

    Potential to get a great title, potential to travel, casual environment and young team.

    Cons

    Unorganized, young inexperienced managers in some departments, run very very unprofessionally, some people earn large salary for doing nothing, other hard workers are not rewarded equally

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals and let them do their job. Terminate bad employees and revise your business model.

    Pros

    The pay is decent and they are established in the broadcast industry. Have some good customers. Not a real player with other services they offer. Work life balance is OK.

    Cons

    Management does not keep up with current trends. Sadly, those who manage the technology groups have no technical skills themselves. They could use more relevant technology but do not. The industry is changing, but they are stuck in the old ways of doing things. No career growth potential at all. Management is often hostile toward employees & are always scrambling about trying to fix problems. They are always in reactive mode rather than proactive mode. Seems they are always going from one crisis to the next. Poorly run business.

    Advice to Management

    Get on board with some relevant technology. Change your business processes to more current methods of doing things. Hire management who actually knows something. In case you are unaware, the broadcast TV industry is changing. If you don't change with the times, you'll be left in the dust.
