    I worked at Canon Canada full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Photocopier sales, on a the whole, is a very difficult business to start with. Canon is a bright light among all the darkness that this industry is known for. Great products, reasonable targets, great benefits, outstanding earnings potential (particularly for young sales people just starting out), and fantastic atmosphere. However, the most important reason that made working at Canon a wonderful experience: The people.

    Cons

    Price erosion driving the cost of products down, aggressive competition from other companies, long sales cycle, sales department in competition with service department, limited marketing support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - In sales, maximum earning potential is reached after 2 years - consider different avenues of earnings growth to keep seasoned veterans.
    - Sales reps could use more closing tools
    - Service is too protective of its profits. If they gave more concessions to sales, business could increase exponentially.
