"“Olympus has afforded me opportunity after opportunity to learn, grow, develop, and succeed in my career in medical device marketing. The Early Talent Program gave me the chance to start my career meeting and working with many teams, individuals, and critical functions within the organization and across Olympus locations, both in the US and globally, expanding my network and preparing me for each next step in my professional journey. A 3 month rotational program working in Olympus Tokyo headquarters further punctuated the fact that saying ‘yes’ to many new opportunities presented was tremendously beneficial in opening doors, expanding my connections, and increasing my experience and exposure. I’m grateful that Olympus has allowed me to take many leaps of faith into new and more challenging roles, with dedicated managers and mentors to champion me and cheer me on along the way.” "

""I have had 10 amazing years at Olympus!  I am so proud to work for this organization and believe in the work that we do and the mission of the company. The people, my team, and my fellow Olympus employees is just one of the many reasons why I continue to work for Olympus; I have created some of my best friendships while working here that I treasure dearly. The mentorship that I have received from my senior level colleagues has been one of the most crucial and in my opinion most valued aspects of my job that has contributed to my career exponentially; without my great co-workers over these last 10 years, I would not be where I am today.  They have coached me, encouraged me, and challenged me to be the best version of myself professionally.   When I talk about Olympus to friends and family, it is very clear how much I love working here.  Olympus is such an innovative company and I often proudly share how Olympus helps save the lives of so many.   Olympus advocates Work Life Balance for their employees and I have experienced this first-hand; I have 3 kids at home, one I had while working here, and I have never had to miss an activity, a school function, or a sick day because it was implied that work was more important than my family.  I have never been made to feel guilty for choosing my family first, in-fact, it has always been expressed that family is the priority here.  I have always been empowered to be a valued employee in addition to being an involved parent and that is extremely important to me.” "
