The IT department had good and bad management. Not much support if you weren't in the "in crowd". Employees were wonderful to work with, fun, knowledgable.

Horrible Management
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  PHX, AZJune 10, 2018
The Management in the Phoenix Branch are horrible. The Operations Manager and Branch Manager are both clueless on how to run an successful company with a positive work environment. The Branch Manger lies all the time. The Ops Mgr is loud and obnoxious, unprofessional and is an idiot.

Osram Sylvania is no longer in operation in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. I enjoyed working at the facility and would have stayed longer if it stayed in operation.

Principal Engineer(Wireless) (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ONApril 12, 2018
The CTO of the Encelium group under Osram is brilliant and his products are a work of art. However, there is a lack of trust with his team, thus often work goes unappreciated or ignored.
The team is quite strong and there was a lot of care given to hiring high quality individuals, however without the proper leeway, the team was not able to reach their full potential.

Highly recomend for the right type of people
Electronic Technician (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, NHApril 3, 2018
If you are a self-motivated individual that wants to learn a wide swath of technology, this is the place for you. Formal training is pretty much non-existent, however time during your work week allows you to hone your craft. Only self starters need apply to technical positions. People are awesome. Roll up your sleeves and let's get it done type of place, which I love.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, Commute, People
Cons
Lack of Swag (Shirts, Tees), Training sucks

SAP Supply Chain Systems Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Westfield, INMarch 22, 2018
I enjoyed my time at Osram Sylvania, it was a good place to work and the benefits were average for a large corporation. If there had been growth opportunities I would have stayed.

Too lean
Production Line Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Hillsborough, NHMarch 16, 2018
Not enough staffing to cover vacation days or call ins. LEANed themselves in to a corner. Want to make it less stressful for employees but by downsizing head count, actually make it more stressful. More work for less people. Pays well, but too much headache.

Silverlight Inspector (Former Employee) –  RIFebruary 22, 2018
very fast paced, loved every hour worked from start to finish, and upbeat. I learned great work ethics something that missing in today's businesses, how production worked, and how to treat people. Management was wonderful I loved everyone there positive attitudes had everyone trying and doing their best. The culture was awesome. The hardest part of the job was the heat in the summer, the most enjoyable part was everything else absolutely wonderful job and the people made working there worth it!

Provided support of e-business processes
SAP EAI/EDI Analyst (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, MAFebruary 15, 2018
My line of work you very rarely have the same routine as requirements and production support for each internal and external customer is different.

Very fast pace as business is waiting for resolution to process orders or send ASN's to avoid charges which creates a lot of pressure.

I enjoyed working in such a challenging environment.
Pros
allow to work off site to balance, good pay
Cons
when management doesn't understand the line of work you supporting/doing, could create unpleasant situation

Principal Engineer II, Mechanical (Former Employee) –  Danvers, MAFebruary 2, 2018
Old technology company trying to reinvent itself; lots of politics, not enough work done upfront to identify good projects. Project management and data management systems were too burdensome.
Pros
Good 401K match
Cons
Hard to get products out the door.

Too lean
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, NHJanuary 28, 2018
All production lines running short handed on a normal basis due to extreme lean initiatives. Upper management no longer cares about safety, employee well being, or communication. The bottom line $$$ is important. Rules change day by day. Company used to be great but in recent years has gone down hill, it used to be a friendly and caring place to work. Everyone now is just miserable and can't wait to leave.
Pros
none anymore
Cons
13 days shorthanded, stress!!!
