I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time

Pros

The company has hired a lot of people in the last year, so there is a good mix of 10+ year employees and newer employees bringing in new ideas. Business has been very good, lots of new development going on and challenging work. There has been a lot of employee training too.

Cons

No profit sharing but good pay and benefits

    I worked at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some good, hard-working and genuinely nice people who carry the organization. These are those in the trenches, not those who sit around making poor decisions without strategic thinking. Despite poor treatment and and a complete lack of appreciation, a good number of people get up every day and drag themselves into the office and try to do the best they can.

    Cons

    A "have" and "have not" environment. This is not an environment where everyone gets a fair shake and equal opportunity to succeed. Take it from someone who has been on both sides of this, if you are not in the right group, you might as well leave as you will never get the same opportunities to advance your career. As a manager, this can be a tough environment to provide opportunities for your employees.

    Lack of integrity. Upper management is never fully honest with employees and you are more likely to find out what is going on from the newspaper than the company communications, even as an employee. It is difficult to work for an employer who is never fully honest with employees regarding company issues.

    Company politics are exhausting. Even in the most tactful manner, employees can never fully tell the truth unless it is 100% positive. Issues never get resolved.

    No regard for work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Management hears what they want to hear so why bother.... Advice to potential employees is STAY AWAY.

    I worked at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The great people working to make it a successful company. Some of the best products in the world., used to help people, and to save lives.

    Cons

    Leadership seemed to be without direction. Courses of action seemed to be without thought or plan. No long term career path, or opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Share long term plans, and make employees feel a part of something. Give people goals and allow them to help develop road maps. Empower your people!
