      Pros

      I have been working at Sysmex for over a year and am very thankful for this opportunity. Especially during this time with COVID, they have done an excellent job of keeping the employees informed and ensuring all the precautions are taken so the employees are safe. This job was recommended to me by a friend and am so thankful they did. When I was looking for a job I did my search looking for reviews on this company and it definitely helped make my decision when reading the comments here. So for those of you trying to make your decision, you will be safe and among some great employees.

      Cons

      Hard to locate on their internal site who handles certain processes. However, on a positive note, ask questions and people are more than willing to help you and guide in in the right direction. As a bonus, you also get to know a lot of people this way.

      Pros

      In Canada sysmex is ok.

      Cons

      Management appears as they try but in reality they have no clue what's going on in the field. Alot of office politics. They will easily fire a field rep for poor performance but if you're in the boys club in the offices you will get reassigned. Huge favoritism in offices. If you're looking to get out of the field you need to suck up big time. In the offices they are constantly giving each other new jobs and promotions without advertising availability. Pay is ok. But in reality quite low when you need to commit 24 7 to resolving customer issues. Disrupts family life. Profit above all, typical corporate mentality.

      Pros

      Great products, great people. This company does not passively design and sell products for status quo - it is always on the leading edge of innovation and shifting paradigms before competition can catch up.

      Cons

      This is a macho corporate organization. If you can't handle the stress of 'playing the game' and always watching your back, it might not be for you.

      Toxic Senior Leadership

      May 28, 2021 - Middle Management 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are some passionate and talented people that work here. I used to report to a strong and smart Director who cared about getting things done and promoted and rewarded good work. There are still some really good managers here. If you are someone who can go along with whatever you are told, you will be fine here. I learned so much here and had alot of opportunities to expand my knowledge. But politics are more important than results now unfortunately.

      Cons

      Senior Leadership is toxic. The CEO talks about transparency and the importance of allowing dessenting opinions, but that isn't true. It's what he has to say to appease Japan (corporate). I brought up unethical behavior and in short order I was pushed out despite the successes I had in performance over the last 5 years. I went to more than 1 HR person and got no support. I went to the chief compliance officer and he admitted that he could not protect me. If you are someone who values transparency, trust and teamwork and doing what is right for the company you don't want to work here.

      Pros

      Great benefits, company vehicle, cell phone, pays for internet service, offers health and wellness perdium.

      Cons

      Very heavy work load with minimal coverage and help. Very poor work life balance. Depending on area, lots of travel. Poor planning and implementation of instrumentation modifications. Low tech solution to service call reporting and closure. (Software is poorly constructed and maintained) Very behind on completing and validating necessary procedures for field use. Poor planning in parts department causing slowdowns and long waits for customers. Poor planning for new instrumentation acquisition (short notice to field causing scramble for training)
