    I worked at Canon Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The new office in Santa Monica is nice.

    Cons

    One business head has been complained about to HR several times (that I know of) and there were no consequences. That department had a 95% turnover in one year and still, no one looked into the problems.

    Their products are outdated. Management is very political and has no vision. You're expected to work 14 hour days. A lot of the management is based in the UK and believes that Europeans know better. They don't understand that there are differences in what consumers want in the UK vs. the U.S.

    A lot of incompetence by senior management.

    I have been working at Canon Communications

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Salary comparable to other publishers. Great "in the trenches" relationship among staff.

    Cons

    Skeleton staff, so everyone is doing two or three different jobs. Continually acquiring, launching and marketing products they can't support, so stress level among staff is high. Divisions that are supposed to work together simply don't communicate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down on acquisitions and take care of business. Treat your staff like human beings, not machines.

    Disapproves of CEO
