    I worked at Canon as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Things are easy to work with. Instructions were given out and there is little work autonomy.
    You'll end up being good at what you do, but it is limited to the role.

    Cons

    Very stubborn higher management. Unspoken female bias. Not a fantastic pay given the amount of work that one requires to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better promotion schemes, being more flexible with organizational structure
