Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time

Pros

Compensation is good, but you need to kiss the right butt to get it. The old boys network is alive and well at Olympus

Cons

Talented people will go crazy. Its all about politics and nothing about actual contribution and value. There are so many incompetent people in management that continue to get rewarded.

Advice to Management

Now that the former president is out, there is an opportunity to make it a better pace to work and I understand they have relaxed so of the insane policies he put in place. But lack of leadership still seems apparent.
