    I have been working at Sysmex America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Global leader in its chosen field, very few firings due to selective hiring process, outstanding training and community. Intelligent, thoughtful leadership.

    Cons

    A little slow to recognize when to fish or cut bait regarding internal technology. While core products are sound, not the most technologically advanced, but extremely interesting to work on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really not much, management is really great. I would say they could communicate strategy a little more loudly, a little more clearly...but that's a minor criticism.

    Pros

    Good pay, interesting work, Japanese Owned Company - they try to follow Japanese business model. They allow a lot of telecommuting positions which are great if you like that sort of thing - I did.

    Cons

    Long work hours, not enough support staff, too many people hoarding knowledge to secure job position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's hard to balance life and work in this company at times.

    I worked at Sysmex America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It sounds cliché, but it's all about the people. Everyone is very passionate about the products and the company as a whole and it shows in everything they do. The products are the best in the industry. The new product line is even better than the previous one. So long as the company can maintain their previous culture, they have no place to go but up.

    Cons

    There are times when they are moving very fast which places a lot of stress on the best of the best in the company. They are often overworked, however, when times are tough and stress levels are high, that is exactly when the teams pull together and work miracles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. When they cry uncle either slow things down or get them more help.

    I have been working at Sysmex America full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The employees here are top notch - Smart, friendly, feels like a large family.

    Compensation.

    Our CEO knows my name - I'm not just a number.

    The work we do is important - I don't feel like I'm wasting my time.

    Cons

    Management takes "Do more with less" to a new level. The company's employee base has grown over 3x since I've been here (and of course, the customer base as well), yet the support staff has grown only marginally. The company is so focused on growth that the back-office support is often overlooked and expected to keep up with the ever-increasing workload.

    Poor-performing managers/directors are kept far longer than they should.

    No real chance to advance unless someone leaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix cons, but overall, keep going. We're heading in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great company that's growing immensely that invests in its employees and emphasizes work/life balance and happiness in the workplace. Tons of opportunity to move and grow within the company.

    Cons

    Every company has downsides, but other than my personal commute, I'm still looking for them.

    Pros

    Sysmex is a very collaborative company with great products. Managment truly cares about their employees. This culture tone is set throughout the company and you find co-workers in a productive, non-defensive atmosphere. Employees are motivated by the mission of the company through health care initiatives.

    Cons

    Sysmex is growing which is good, but should continue to automate its processes.
