    I worked at OSI Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers were great, however there is alot of turnover in staff. Great products.

    Cons

    Unfair salary practices. New employees with 2 years experience making as much as employees with company for 5 years. Double the workload and expected to manage more responsibilities with no promotion and meger pay increases. No career advancement

    Advice to Management

    Follow your pay practices instead of giving increases to employees you like. Do activites for employee appreciation. No more picnics and Christmas party scaled down significantly. Employee morale low.

    I worked at OSI Systems full-time

    Pros

    The pay is really low. So once you've finally had enough it should be pretty easy to find a job that pays better.

    Cons

    - Woefully mismanaged. Management is constantly running in circles. They aren't making any progress but they sure do look busy. - Extremely cheap. Anything and everything is done by the lowest bidder, all to the detriment of the employees and even the company. Examples include the mostly India-based IT staff and offshore manufacturing. - No policies, procedures, or regulation. This has gotten OSI and it's subsidiaries...

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at OSI Systems full-time

    Pros

    There aren't any pros for this company. Stay away because this company is atrocious in every way. It's a toxic environment.

    Cons

    There aren't any pros for this company. Stay away because this company is atrocious in every way. It's a toxic environment. You are treated like dirt. You are put down and insulted in every way possible. There's no respect.

    I have been working at OSI Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Very horizontal organizational Structure - Flexibility to grow into multiple roles - Very stable in regards to retention on employees - Certain roles int he company like mine give great exposure to the industry all across the globe.

    Cons

    - Very low turnover rate so you have to wait for while to get promotions, plus the horizontal structure doesn't help as well in this regard - Salary is typically on the lower end as far as industry standards go - Equipment is dated in certain areas

    Advice to Management

    Invest in core competencies to help secure and expand the business.

    I worked at OSI Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The engineers, technicians and project managers that I worked with locally were a highly intelligent, hard-working and creative group. Sadly, nearly every one quickly reached a level of intolerable frustration and left for greener pastures. I've talked with many of them; with well over 150 years of combined work experience, the consensus is they have never experienced a worse company. Not a single person I spoke with...

    Cons

    This Indian-owned company with offices in the US (originally Optical Systems of India, now officially renamed "OSI") has intensely short-sighted management, directed by a myopic CEO who is famous within the company for his erratically uninformed temper tantrums. Management does not stay focused on anything very long, and this is reflected in the fact that quarterly performance is given far greater importance than annual...

    Advice to Management

    Company culture starts at the top, and this company's culture is severely broken. Deepak and family should step down, and upper management should be replaced by people who are more qualified. Nepotism breeds dysfunction, discontent, and ineptitude.
