    Pros

    Aside from generous benefits and competitive salaries, Olympus Corporation of the Americas headquarters boasts a beautiful campus, ideal for lunch-time walks for fresh air and exercise.

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

    Pros

    Autonomy in my positional responsibilities and clarity with the job mission; What more can one ask for. This is only possible because management trusts and supports my activity. This being said, the company provides excellent training aides, communication lines and co-worker help to get the job completed without micromanaging.

    Cons

    None that come racing to mind. Well of course there is that paper work documentation requirement everyone has to deal with. Still, the process is always improving.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take anything for granted. Assume nothing. Know that even the brightest star employee needs a word of encouragement.

    I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been here for about six months now and I honestly love my job here at Olympus. A job is a job, but let's face it at the end of the day it's really the atmosphere, the people you encounter everyday in your work life, and company culture that can really make the difference. So far, the management I work for has been great, and there is an enthusiasm about what we do as a company that makes me feel good about coming to work everyday. Olympus is very inclusive, and they do so much for the community and encourage their employees to do the same. I feel that I have a positive work/life balance, and am very happy here since I started.

    Cons

    Olympus is behind in technology, still using Lotus Notes for e-mail and MS Office 2007.

    Very good benefit package with good rate of 401k company match. People are very friendly. Many exciting global projects with international colleagues. A lot of opportunities to do challenging projects.

    Cons

    Having a good communication with liaisons can be hard sometimes depending on the individuals.

    Advice to Management

    We should be able to have a say when we receive liaisons. Providing requirements or expected capabilities, or have several interviews to see if the individual would fit with our needs.
