“In July 2013, I became the first intern for the Medical Systems Group. I helped Product Managers in Core Gastroenterology, EndoTherapy, Cleaning and Disinfection, and Respiratory Marketing with critical projects. After the program, I applied for a Respiratory position and gained employment with Olympus two months before graduation. As a current Associate Product Manager now in Respiratory Marketing, Olympus has allowed me to flourish and make a difference in the lives of my co-workers, customers, and patients who suffer from lung disease.”

~ Ariel Merkt, Associate Product Manager, Core Respiratory EndoTherapy Devices

"Becoming an Olympus employee was one of the greatest opportunities to come my way after a 20-year career with a large pharmaceutical company. Upon starting, I was very pleased to learn about the great healthcare benefits and special wellness programs offered by Olympus. In addition, I noted the “atmosphere” and how much the Company cares for its employees. It is wonderful to find a company with such dedication to creating a positive and balanced environment for its employees."

~ Helen E. Yanovitch, Graphic Designer III - Marcom & Advertising
