    I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Early impression is that they are a highly skilled and yet very compassionate company. They believe in a work/life balance and were very accommodating during the interview and on-boarding process.

    Cons

    They use an outside background check company that was a bit challenging to work with if you are not overly detailed on your resume. If you have a company that changed names, you may want to break it out before submitting.

    I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    True to Life slogan was catchy? They promised a bunch of things in the interview that never were kept.

    Cons

    I'll wait for someone from HR will comment and say negative reviews are from disgruntled former employees but in the meantime avoid this place at all cost compared to their competitors!....Never before have I seen so many people just describe a place as just a job and come to work in such a sterile atmosphere. The interview really seemed like a bait and switch between what they showed on their corporate video and what I saw when I got there. So far there has been nothing good to say and I cannot wait to leave.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great. 401K match is excellent.

    Cons

    Tenured culture leads to opinion based decisions instead of being data driven. Little to no guidance from management. Job description/interview did not reflect actual requirements for position.
