    I worked at Canon Solutions America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Canon philosophy is one of loyalty that if you do your job, you never have to worry about getting downsized. Innovative and industry leading technology in a number of areas. Most executives I reported to were compassionate leaders

    Cons

    Incredibly disjointed processes and workflows. That starts at the top, and is a downside to being such a large company. Compensation for sales is awful. Something to weigh against the quality of life you enjoy working for them.f you are looking to make a great income selling a lot, this might not be the place for you. It also seemed that the service on the hardware no matter where you went was below average. This was more prevalent outside the major metropolitan areas.

    Advice to Management

    Bring your compensation model up, and rely on field insight to improve your processes and workflow. Hard to consistently make intelligent decisions sitting in a comfortable chair in New York

    I have been working at Canon Solutions America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    you working for the canon company.

    Cons

    no room for improvement unless someone leaves. Clients treat you like crap and slaves but as long as they will sign the contract let them. The classes we have to take contradicts what management does all the time.

    Advice to Management

    learn what your clients do to the people that supposed to represent you. When the people that represent your company are treated like crap and all you have to say to them is just do what they say so they'll sign the contract it makes them feel like not representing the company to the fullest.

    Pros

    Chance to learn while working in other companies. Money and benefits, ok. Companies you get to work inside of can give you an idea of life outside of Canon.

    Cons

    Management does not care if you take great care of the client, as long as you do exactly as they say even if they are wrong or it is written into the contract. Canon tries to bleed the customer dry.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your experienced staff and take care of the client!

    Pros

    Good benefits package and base salary. The regular workers (non-upper management people) are mostly very good quality people.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management - basically a good 'ole boys club that will continue forever. The company is so wealthy, all the lawsuits against them always get settled out of court & it's just a slap on the hand to them. They will never change. They hire 1 "token" black sales manager, 1 token female VP executive, & 1 token female sales manager. Everyone else in those positions are white men - always. When I left, every women on the sales team had left - except 1 who was in the middle of a class action lawsuit against them (so she decided to stick it out for another year).


  7. Very satisfied on all levels with this company so far.

    NOT the place to work as an individual contributor. Manager, Sr. Manager, Director or above? Perhaps.

    Pros

    You can run out the door at precisely 5:00 PM to pick up the kids if you have to.

    Cons

    Looking for a corner office? Don't kid yourself. You'll be sitting at what could be described generously, as a workbench in the middle of a massive hive of other worker bees. Very stuffy, "ssshhh!" atmosphere that operates a geologically slow pace. The "ooohhh, here comes yada-yada executive, everybody behave themselves!" resembles middle school.

    Advice to Management

    If you see talent, move them around. They'll get bored as hell, and then leave as I did. In our small area of Canon Solutions America the attrition rate was at least one full time employee per month walking out the door for six consecutive months. That's data!
