Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
No opinion of CEO

Pros

1) Great management at the Irving office.
2) Great teammates to work with.
3) The work is never the same.
4) You work for an industry leader.

Cons

1) The staff in Irving TX is being laid off. I personally don't like it, but then again I don't run the company. At least they were up front and gave us sometime to find new jobs.
2) Some of the business decisions Olympus has made over the years don't make any sense from a business perspective.
3) Working remotely doesn't really offer you any opportunities for growth.
4) Benefits have pretty much tanked.

Advice to Management

Please allow more opportunities for growth and advance to the employees out side of the corporate office. Since I started, the benefits have gone nothing but down hill. There are no pensions for new employees, no more automatic 401K match, and mediocre health insurance. To attract good employees this will need to change especially for a company in the healthcare industry.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -working for a company that has a gold standard medical device that saves lives
    -people I work with..
    -tons of overtime
    -because of its deep pockets with coporate-stability of job
    -new CEO and brass at corporate level-excited to see what will happen

    Cons

    -upper upper managment very disconnected from day to day activities-several don't even know how to use current platform software.

    -used to be a company with "atta-boy" perks--i.e turkey at thanksgiving/summer picnic/christmas lunch--all taken away or turned into "fundraiser activities" that really only benefit company taxes.

    -management obsessed with dress code-sending people home for not tucking in shirts.

    -difficult to get promoted...few opportunities.

    -very low morale...

    -unlike corporate, the repair center upper/senior managment has not changed

    Advice to Management

    -focus on the quality..not cost or delivery.
    -get more involved with what your "minions" do.

    Pros

    Good at first, then it all went down the toilet.
    Nice area
    Hopefully new uppermanagement can take the company back and "right the wrongs".

    Cons

    Management is completely out of touch, not in reality.
    Micromanagement at its finest.
    Management leads by intimidation.
    Unrealistic MBO's with little or no compensation.
    Afraid to stand up for thier emplyees.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and listen to your employees. Most of your employees have more education that you do, and actually have good ideas.
