    I worked at OSI Systems full-time

    Pros

    The pay is really low. So once you've finally had enough it should be pretty easy to find a job that pays better.

    Cons

    - Woefully mismanaged. Management is constantly running in circles. They aren't making any progress but they sure do look busy. - Extremely cheap. Anything and everything is done by the lowest bidder, all to the detriment of the employees and even the company. Examples include the mostly India-based IT staff and offshore manufacturing. - No policies, procedures, or regulation. This has gotten OSI and it's subsidiaries (Rapsican and Spacelabs) into trouble with the government on more than on occasion. Easily verifiable with a simple Google search. - Things are done so inefficiently it is frustrating. Company is completely adverse to change regardless of logic and reasoning. You have no voice, just do what you are told how you are told. - Job titles and job descriptions are meaningless. Your job is whatever your boss tells you to do. - Benefits and pay are a joke. Even if you manage to negotiate your way up to a decent salary it won't matter because... see above... your job is whatever they tell you to do. They will get their pound of meat out of you no matter what. - OSI stands for Optical Systems of India, though they try not to mention that too much. The work culture in India is much different than in the US and while I'm sure it's worse for the poor souls actually working in India it does come through to an extent here as well. Basically put - they do not care about you, you are just a seat filler, and there are plenty of butts out there. You have 0 job security. - CEO Deepak Chopra (not THAT Deepak Chopra) is known as being a tyrannical leader who publicly threatens and humiliates his employees. If you are thinking of working here please don't. You are worth more than this.

    I worked at OSI Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The engineers, technicians and project managers that I worked with locally were a highly intelligent, hard-working and creative group. Sadly, nearly every one quickly reached a level of intolerable frustration and left for greener pastures. I've talked with many of them; with well over 150 years of combined work experience, the consensus is they have never experienced a worse company. Not a single person I spoke with is sorry to have left.

    Cons

    This Indian-owned company with offices in the US (originally Optical Systems of India, now officially renamed "OSI") has intensely short-sighted management, directed by a myopic CEO who is famous within the company for his erratically uninformed temper tantrums. Management does not stay focused on anything very long, and this is reflected in the fact that quarterly performance is given far greater importance than annual - which leads to booking orders from one quarter to the next just to disguise natural fluctuations which would otherwise lead to boardroom tirades. Business is often fast and loose, which is how they got in trouble with the TSA on multiple occasions, and were even temporarily barred from screening system sales to the US government. It is often repeated that workers are a merely a commodity in India and that is very evident at Rapiscan and OSI. If you are not part of CEO Deepak Chopra's family, you are expendable. There is little loyalty to employees, and layoffs abound. From nearly the moment that our small company was acquired, there was a push to transition our knowledge (and I quote) "to lower-cost engineers in India" and "reduce workforce here in the US". Within 2 years, nearly everyone saw the writing on the wall and left or were laid off.
