Super-friendly culture
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) –  Goleta, CAJuly 10, 2018
Karl Storz Imaging (KSI) is one branch of an International corporation consisting of several divisions. At KSI the emphasis is on the positive outcome of the customer's experience. The overall emphasis is on Quality, which is strictly controlled.

People are caring and helpful. Every section is cross-trained in additional processes to help cover all stations in the event of absences. All training is provided and updated regularly. One can ask to be trained or retrained to a specific task as required.

That said, the environment at KSI is friendly, even fun-loving. Several events are planned annually, such as a deep sea fishing trip in local waters, an Annual family picnic, sometimes held at a major theme park or venue; and an annual Aloha Picnic (for employees only) held at the beach. The Winter Holiday party is held in January.
One particular employee, an engineer, organized an Easter egg hiding event every year, to the delight of employees the morning after.

HR is concerned about the wellness of the employees, with lots of events and perks including yoga classes and chair massages. Most employees work four 10-hour days a week with a select few, Service,
and Customer Service,for instance working five 8-hour shifts in order to satisfy Customer's needs. KSI's full service Machine Shop maintains shifts day and night including weekends.
Pros
frequent employee activities
Cons
lunch is only 1/2 hour, barely enough to go out for lunch

What can I say
Lead HW Design Verification Engineer IV (Former Employee) –  Stafford, TXJuly 7, 2018
The engineering tasks were ambiguously defined and never were fully supported by the management and team members due to personal prejudice and issues. I really did not know why things were out of control. Shortest engineering employment ever.

Depressing environment.
Assembler II/ Shift trainer/Clean room (Former Employee) –  Charlton, MAJune 23, 2018
Management needs a revamp. Quality control is a mess and needs drastic improvement. Some safety issues are cause for concern. Kizan is very stressful for employees and in no way makes working at Karl Storz a pleasant experience.
Pros
Benefits and bonuses
Cons
Management, lack of teamwork

Wonderful Company
Coordinator Assistant (Current Employee) –  Southbridge, MAJune 20, 2018
The mission and history of the company are inspiring.

Some want to work as a team player and some just want to be the boss. Wants young people versus experience. The hardest part of the job is lack of consistency.
Pros
benefits
Cons
lack of team player

Was very unhappy
Account Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Southbridge, MAJune 14, 2018
A crazy amount of training for a temp position! Over 400 hours plus weekly training after that was completed. The company wanted more and more out of me and expected me to take on more and more responsibilities without being hired as a FT employee. As a temp you are excluded from all company events or outings. Did not make me feel like part of the team. Very clicky office environment also. Don’t get on the bad side of HR! Made promises that were not kept and changed my schedule that was agreed upon when I took the assignment.
Pros
I can take what experience I received to a new job
Cons
Broken promises

This is a company that affects the human life, and that is the overall beauty of working for them. Typical day is fast paced but accomplished. The events for the staff were nice as well.

Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Nigeria - Crown Healthcare and Privic MedicalsApril 3, 2018
it begins with forecasting the possible clients to visit and outline goals to achieve. Then out listing the contacts of key accounts to make phone contacts, thereafter newer contacts

I learn perseverance, and cordial relationship and manage client by taking all of there complaints seriously.

The hardest part of the job is when clients constantly talk about competitors regardless of how hard you push the brand.

The most enjoyable part of the job is when contracts and deals are closed
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
Short Break

Supplier Quality Manager/Quality Systems Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlton, MAJanuary 5, 2018
KARL STORZ was an outstanding experience working with talented and motivated individuals. As with any organization with multiple sites/business units, the biggest challenges involved communicating across organizational boundaries. The management team was forward-thinking and really pushed the organization to move forward. Highly recommend this employer for those looking to challenge themselves outside their comfort zones.
Pros
Great Experience
Cons

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
