Great learning experience but not a good place for a quick promotion

Coordinator (Former Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

Pros- Collaborative team environment
- Nice people
- Good opportunity to take on more projects if you have a good manager

Cons- Very strict work place culture (Japanese)
- Hard-working team but not a lot of A-players
- No serious career planning for employees and no planned promotion route

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to get more young people and fresh ideas into the company. Also, if pay were more competitive then more high-performing talent would get hired and stay with the company.

    Endless processes and corporate level micro management

    BSD Sales (Former Employee)

    I worked at Canon Canada full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Good local managers, and reasonably good 3 week training program… Cons: Local management has no authority, flexibility or operating budget to go after business, therefore are noncompetitive against other manufacturers and even Canon's own independent dealer… Advice to Senior Management: Canon's direct selling Business Solutions Division doesn't seem to have any idea of how to do a direct selling business in a competitive market. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Sales Representative - Business Development (Current Employee)
    Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I have been working at Canon Canada full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Excellent products! Fun office, better than average salary. Commission earned for every dollar sold! Excellent pricing support when needed. Freedom given… Cons: Getting answers to questions from HQ can be a lesson… Advice to Senior Management: Local management is excellent and supportive. For managers higher up we need to have more responsive people.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
