    Pros

    Good athmosphere and Good package and Good facilities

    There is a nice canteen and spacious offices.

    Cons

    Culture of long working hours and not the best options for women progressing in their career. Innovation has to be managed together with Japanese headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Need to adress younger generation >> some principles outdated. Albeit being a German company initially, Japanese cultural trends are moving in. Site in Hamburg is a little off, reachable by car though,

    I worked at Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - sehr guter Umgang und Zusammenhalt zwischen den Kollegen
    - gute, wenn auch zu kleine Kantine
    - selbstständiges arbeiten und abwechslungsreiche Aufgaben
    - Kuchenrunde mit Kollegen :)

    mehr Feedbackgespräche wären besser und nicht nur eins in 6 Monaten

    I worked at Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starke Marke und solide, wenn auch überalterte Produkte, grosses Vertrauen seitens der Kunden - finanziell stabil und relativ verlässlich - ein Kern fantastischer Mitarbeiter produziert grossen Erfolg

    Cons

    Kultur und nicht vorhandene Führung sind langfristige Probleme - die Marktdominanz macht träge und blind und für Führungskräfte geht es oftmals nur darum „oben“ nicht aufzufallen - auch nicht mit zu viel Leistung

    Advice to Management

    Ändern Sie den Fokus und beenden Sie Alibiaktionen

    Pros

    Sehr professionell aufgestellt bei gleichzeitig positiven Arbeitsklima. International vertreten, was Auslandseinsätze möglich macht. OSTE bildet seine Arbeitnehmer über interne Schulungen regelmässig aus.

    Cons

    Olympus ist auch im vergleich zu anderen Medizintechnikunterbehmen extrem dokumenten- und prozessgetrieben. Wie so oft sind die erstellten Dokumente öfters nur hinsichtlich Zulassung nützlich und nicht für die eigentliche Entwicklungsarbeit.
