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

Pros

Decent pay and benefits, some personal freedoms, depending upon your manager. Constant change

Cons

Constant change, Not sure if upper management is realistic anymore. Many yes-men. Many disconnects between different departments (silo mentality). Top-down hierarchy, and bucket loads of attitude.

Advice to Management

When you are considering reworking every aspect of a persons job, please try to put yourself in your employees shoes. Not all change is a good thing, sometimes it is better to do enough research before you attempt a new business plan so you are not reworking everything all the time.

    I worked at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people who you work with are great. There are many perks to the job and tons of training. There are many different places to transfer to and job titles to obtain.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than most competitors, you will be FORCED to work overtime which is supposed to non-mandatory and there will also be time you will have to work weekends. The hours are from 7am-7pm so dont plan on having a life if you work there. It is a constant fight to get out of work because they see everything, OT included, as a "business necessity."

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who actually do the work. Quit making all these rules just so that you can enforce them whenever you feel is necessary.
