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

    Pros

    Had a great time working with so many good people for so long. Miss working with good co-workers. Benefits are good compared to other companies I have worked so far. Grass isn't always greener on the other side. Be appreciative for what Olympus is offering.

    Cons

    Left due to uncertain future with the dept. not sharing any info. Offered to take additional responsibilities but management did not approve.

    Advice to Management

    When someones asks to take more responsibility without asking for a raise, why not approve? Don't limit employee's potential yet you encouraged taking more training. Noticed managers getting promoted year after year while low level employees hardly received any promotions. I can name a few if it helps. Also never got an exit interview. HR and managements ran better under Mark Gumz's leadership. Thanks for the opportunity.
