    I have been working at Ricoh Americas Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing management from top to bottom. I work in St. Louis and our Inside Sales Team is more of a family than anything. With the outside support from our Senior Sales Manager Michael Lowe, to our Head of Operations Stephanie Pike, we have grown from 12 employees to, what will be by 10-2015, over 100 employees. My supervisors are excellent with their intuitiveness to the business, product history knowledge, leadership, personal support, and professional advocacy for my future at the company. Since I have been employed by the company in June of 2013, I have turned down multiple job offers for more money and compensation simply due to the atmosphere and both personal and professional aesthetics in my department and the company as a whole. I have worked on over 5 states for more than 10 top 100 Forbes companies of different types and their business models could profit both personally and financially ten fold from how Ricoh does theirs.

    Cons

    Moving up in my department is a very slow process and that's only because we have been open since 11-2012 and are growing. Therefore, time is what is slowing my progress down due to the legalities and budget based criteria it will allow for my Head Sales Manager to make more opportunities available. Other than that, there are no complaints from me with the company, my pay, my balance, or anything else. I love my job thoroughly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only criticism would be the speed of exposure to our department. We are excelling at over 2000% of what we were projected to do 2 years ago. We are running out of room! I know a new center is coming but we may need a skyscraper by the time we turn the next decade due to our success.

    Analyst Relations Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Ricoh Americas Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The initial contact was with a third party outside HR recruiter. It was a very short, not even 20-minute pre-screening. I'm not sure what they were looking for because the questions were very basic. I did not hear back from them for more than two months and pretty much forgot about the job. I heard then heard from a different outside HR recruiter who wanted to set up a meeting with the hiring manager immediately. The interview went well. We discussed the company, the reason for hiring for list position, my past experience and why it was relevant. It was very much a mutual give and take. That being said, at the end of the call the hiring manager said the position would not report to him, but rather to a person under him and I'd have to speak with her. The recruiter reached out almost immediately to set up the follow up meeting. That did not go so well. The meeting was at the very end of the business day. The interviewer had not even looked at my resume until minutes before our meeting (by her own admission.) She was not prepared with well thought-out questions. She seemed to ask the same question phrased a number of different ways. I couldn't really tell if she was just having a bad day or if she was not happy that the senior person had gone around her to interview me before she had. It didn't surprise me that I got a form "email" from their internal HR department shortly thereafter, informing me that they went in a different direction. You just never know what's really going on -- but I do know I more than had all the credentials for the position and then so, so perhaps the manager was just threatened. It's hard not to feel the effort was a big waste of time.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked if I ran into challenges dealing with analysts who did briefings vs. the analyst who managed the paid subscription relationship. Apparently there is some internal confusion at the company - but in all my years I've never run across that and I had difficulty understanding what could cause such confusion (and I've worked for several large enterprises).   Answer Question
