I worked at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Nice building and amenities - San Diego Tech Center. Gym, and nice surroundings. Good work/life balance. Solid salaries and very good vacation package. Matched 401k.

Cons

Limited budget, nepotism, autocratic and paranoid CEO. Poor project definition and gross management incompetency are common place in this company.

Advice to Management

CEO is incompetent destroys employees morale. Hire someone else for this position

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere and culture

    Aside from the lack of technical and Quality System experience; the atmosphere at work is relaxed and friendly for the most part.

    Sales and marketing staff are treated like royalty because they 'sell' and make money (and also contribute the most non-compliant actions in the company; which ends up costing a lot to rectify).

    Reimbursement is average and the health plan and RRSP benefits are sub-par.

    Cons

    disorganized, lack of accountability, no attention to detail, lack of quality systems

    For a medical device company; which is governed by Health Canada regulations; this company is quite under-developed in terms of their compliance to and understanding of Health Canada's guidelines and technical expertise.

    Majority of the managers (and employees) do not have any experience working within a regulated industry; which leads to numerous non-compliant decisions being made - leading to errors and the need for recall's sand or rework. However, due to the lack of developed quality Systems and lack of knowledgeable staff, corrective actions are inadequate and there is a consistent recurrence of issues that were 'fixed'.

    Advice to Management

    Hire or promote based on experience and knowledge, not based on who is the most 'fun'
