    I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time

    Pros

    Having worked at other companies that did some volunteer and giving programs, I now know what it really means. 16 hours a year to volunteer somewhere and not have to make it up?? It's more than just a publicity stunt. There are several ways to give - not just of yourself and your money, but Olympus backs it up with there own funds.
    You may not start at the highest salary, but the small l things matter, free fruit for healthy snacks, free colonoscopies, group volunteer activities, monthly birthday lunches, flexible schedules... it all adds up to motivation and smiles in the office.

    Cons

    As a large multi-segmented company with offices around the US and the globe there is always the struggle with getting everyone to use the same systems and processes. This is frustrating at times, but everyone is aware of it so we learn to work with it and improve what we can.

    Pros

    The benefits are good reflecting a caring corporate attitude. All companies seem to profess that they care about their employees but Olympus walks the walk. I have seen flexibility to take care of family first during health issues. Daycare is provided at the Center Valley facility.

    Cons

    Like all large corporations there are always some bureaucratic hoops.
