Low Salaries and Confused Managers
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Waltham, MASeptember 17, 2018
The managers don't care about their employees. They micromanage and will make you redo you work if you don't do it their specific way (even if their way is not correct). Middle managers don't do any work themselves and constantly distract you with meetings and small pointless tasks. There are no talented engineers in the building. All of the talented engineers seem to quit after a year or two.
Cons
Poor Management, Poor Pay

Poor management

The company hires managers who treat employees poorly and do not value them. On the other hand, Human Resources dismisses employees who bring complaints about managers instead of removing those bad managers.
Pros
Benefits, working remotely, healthcare
Cons
managers, lots of meetings, poor management of human resources

Supervisor of Inventory and Allocations (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 13, 2018
Olympus is a great company and provide an amazing service to the medical field. However, speaking only about the San Jose branch, there is a lack of communication and management.

IT Support (Former Employee) –  Center Valley, PAJuly 22, 2018
Respectable company to work for. New changes are slow due to the fact that it's highly regulated. Pretty much everything has to go through pre established process.

easy labor
manufacturing team member (Former Employee) –  Norwalk, OHJuly 11, 2018
induced an overhaul of the current operating system the day before, the following day I was accused of loading bad parts into the fixture on the wrong program that I was told didn't exist anymore the day prior and was let go. Seemed like a dream come true until you're being reminded everyday by the supervisor that they will fire you for mistakes.
Pros
decent pay and easy work
Cons
the supervision was arrogant

Associate Endoscope Technician (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 29, 2018
It feels great knowing the work you do helps so many patients around the world. Olympus' ethos for their endoscope line is something that rings true to me. I also like the pay/benefits, as they treat their permanent workers well. Management is good for the most part, and job culture is pretty good as well. Be prepared to work lots though. If you're the type to genuinely put in good, honest work, check them out!
