    I worked at Omron Scientific Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good place to develop skills. Colleagues are quite pleasant. Company, in general, is supportive of employee's work-life balance and emergencies so long as you are not on critical path. Very stable employment for many positions. Good insurance packages.

    Cons

    Oppressive upper management. Almost 100% turnover of software group in two years (engineers, not management). Excessive and meaningless process overhead that does not improve the safety, reliability, or efficacy of Omron products. Many employees have not had a raise in more than ten years. Salaries are low, about 75% of market rates in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your lower-level R&D people with more respect. If you don't, now that the job market has improved, you may find yourself without an R&D department at all.

    I have been working at Omron Scientific Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is quite busy.

    Cons

    Upper management lacks structure and organization. They say they want to hear employees concerns but when you try to express them they don't really listen, they don't take the concerns seriously, and they don't follow up with a plan or actions. A general lack of respect/concern for anyone who doesn't fit their mold. Unwilling to provide necessary tools for employees to excell. Constant over-time. All employees are hired as Exemp and are required to work overtime without pay however they must work at least 40 hrs or they get deducted pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and take their concerns seriously.

    I worked at Omron Scientific Technologies

    Pros

    Great products, fantastic internal support, very fast deliveries and customer service. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Prices are higher than several major competitors. Management stuck in "West Coast thinking".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some perspective outside of the West Coast.
