Data Center and Computer Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Center Valley, PAMay 1, 2018
The company preaches collaboration and a need to come together globally. Nonetheless, Olympus America Corporate office is far from attaining the above, and operates like a moms and pops shop. All things equal, everyone is not given the same opportunities to succeed.
Pros

Old negative culture holds up progress

Good place to work depending on who you report to. Some managers are great while others could care less about the career advancement of their reports. Lack of transparency in many departments. Company as a whole is great.
