    Pros

    High tech building, strong reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tough to grow close to management as there are so many tiers in this tremendous organization. Strong leaders at the company though.

    I have been working at Canon USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management was open to discuss ideas and options. Much more focused on the marketing aspect of the business that others. When I was there, they also put on one of the best holiday parties of any organization I worked at!

    Cons

    Silos were abundant and it made it hard to coordinate efforts across divisional boundaries. Older management were not able to adapt to new technology or means to communicate.

    Pros

    Paycheck every two weeks. Health benefits. 401k. Payed vacations. Good products but at what cost.

    Cons

    Low pay and lack of appreciation for employees. You will be stuck in the same place you started for years. They expect you to do everything and tell you you should be grateful to have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really care about the future of this company, start taking care of your employees. Throw them a bone once in a while.
