    I have been working at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Technology, Benefits and training.

    Cons

    Management seems to change direction too often and often times has reps selling the same products into the same accounts

    Advice to Management

    Allow the TM's to do so. Provide smaller territories and let the capital rep sell capital and allow the other divisions to sell their devices/disposables.

    Pros

    Great when I first started. Few years later it changed.

    Cons

    If you were a manager or friend of a manager you could get ahead. A lot of “brown nosing” too. If women were pretty they could get ahead and become an executive in a couple of years. Very poor management too. Sometimes reminded me of high school.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people who do good jobs instead of promoting people by their looks.

    Pros

    No real reason to want to work for this company

    Cons

    Olympus is rewarding their employees to post positive comments about working for them

    Advice to Management

    Japan needs to clean up the mess that they have created in the US. Poor hiring decisions in leadership rolls have created a disaster and all the good employees are leaving.

    I worked at Olympus Corporation of the Americas full-time

    Pros

    Used to be fun family environment but not sure its that way any longer. Freedom in a sales role although that is sometimes due to lack of poor management.

    Cons

    Japanese owned and America is treated like a distributor so advice falls on deaf ears.
    Poor Management with in the Americas Corporation of Olympus
    Poor Products in energy division
    Poor production of many products that are continually pulled from the market but sales reps take the brunt of the fall back because you are held to a number to hit.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management especially in the energy division. Leadership is a joke

    Small friendly company with lots of smart people who are willing to go out of their way to help.
