Don't do it !
Quality Assurance Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Charlton, MADecember 4, 2017
The benefits may be good, but you give up your home life to work here. The bottom line is all they care about. Don't even think of going to H.R. with a problem because they will be calling and sharing it with your Management before you can get back to your area. No confidentially is within those walls.

You'll be stressed out in no time,loved it in the beginning- hated it once I learned they were really about.
Pros
Free lunch once in awhile
Cons
Back-stabbing

Great "Company" benefits but the departments are terribly managed
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlton, MAOctober 19, 2017
Please note most great reviews for this company were from a few years ago or from temp workers who were only there a short while. I worked at this company for years. At first, the supervisors cared about the people and their advancement. Today it's a different story. It's all about the money now and production is all they care about. Such a stressful and horrible place it has become. Still great benefits though if you can take the constant stressful changes and unrealistic expectations. I resigned from a high paying position just so you know.
Pros
Free lunches, great benefits
Cons
Unrealistic expectations on job performance, not enough time or people

Very stressful company to work for
Employee (Former Employee) –  Charlton, MASeptember 11, 2017
This used to be an amazing company to work for. However, now they are cracking down, sitting supervisors and other higher up to sit behind people and see how quick they are working. Processes change daily and people are expected to produce the same amount of work with daily changes, sometimes more than one. If you go to someone and say you're having trouble they do not care. They just tell you to do more work. It's no wonder so many people have been leaving the company.
Pros
Free lunches sometimes
Cons
Everything

hard to gain business
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  OklahomaSeptember 6, 2017
the market for repairs on Karl storz products in Oklahoma is dominated by third party companies, who offer less quality repairs but at a much cheaper rate. most people in my experience are more concerned about the lower price up front than the longevity of the repairs.

You learn a lot, but have to succumb to racism, favouritism and harrassment
Quality Auditor, Field Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Kennesaw, GAAugust 21, 2017
A great company to work at but not all great people.

Work is great, challenging, and you WILL learn a lot, and travel to great places.

3-4 people are responsible for a bad name to the entire company. Management supports wrong doers.
Pros
Free Lunches, Health Benefits
Cons
Racism, Harassment, Favouritism

This is a great company to work for as far as the co workers and benefits. The job is high stress and daily work exceeds level of pay and job description.

More Balance Needed
INSPECTION CLERK I (Former Employee) –  Southbridge, MAJune 5, 2017
A typical day at Karl Storz would hopefully be an eight hour day however this is not usually the case because of the high demand for product. Usually a typical day is 10 hours long. You may learn a lot in that time but if it is needed you will need focus on product and pushing as much product to the warehouse for shipment then anything else. Management may not tell you until the Friday before that you have ten hour days but they will tell you that the overtime is mandatory. The culture in the building fluctuates according to the scheduling this includes all departments. The hardest part of any position there are the hours, The best part of the company will be your co workers, a great group of dedicated individuals.
Pros
occassional free lunches, great medical benefits, overtime for anyone who wants it
Cons
mandatory 10 hour days, non compassionate human resources, non responsive parent office in california

Harassment Continues / Politics - Favoritism
Assembler/Production (Current Employee) –  Charlton, MASeptember 3, 2016
This is great company to work for, There is growth within the company - BUT!- depends whom you work for, Politics and favoritism plays a big roll within the company. If you are not kissing supervisors a...you are a nobody, it doesn't matter if you have good work ethics. Lazy associates still lazy, hard working associates still busting their a... .They overlook your work ethics and achievements. Supervisor and HR linked together..That's number 1.

Number 2.

When it comes to any kind of harassment, HR is very incompetent, don't know how to deal with the situation. You meet up with them and they make you feel like if you are the one causing trouble..smh and the stalker still stalking... What are they waiting for?

Warehouse and Shipping lead (Former Employee) –  Southbridge, MAAugust 13, 2016
day are fast and busy! co-workers are great ,management I think need more workshops on communicating and understanding of different cultures. Also realizing people want to get ahead so implementing more training. Seeing final product going out the doors was great because you knew someone needed that certain unit for surgery. Even though its stamped with approval the hardest part is putting that pressure on yourself thinking once its gets to a destination that it works.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
time for training not implemented

Awful Management at KARL STORZ
Employee. (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaJune 6, 2016
Awful management at KARL STORZ KSEA, Stay clear of this company. Unless you like to be Micro-managed and walked into boardrooms to be degraded on a constant basis. No opportunity for advancement. The review process is a smoke and mirror show. The only plus was the benefits package.
The Employee has no rights at this company.
Good Employees don't simply leave good companies. Good employees leave bad management.
Pros

Cons
Review process was manipulated to suit company
