Pros

Autonomy at the job and the ability to make decisions are the best reasons to work at Canon. It's a relatively flat structure which gives employees access to senior managers. You're also expected to have a good grasp of all the different functions within the business as there just aren't enough people to work the jobs. As a result, you kind of fill in the holes regardless of what your position is at the company.

Cons

It's a pressure cooker environment - especially as a Japanese company. The roles aren't necessarily defined enough that you get a lot of extra work put onto you. They expect a lot without paying enough or providing enough support or benefits. They don't have enough employees and they're not open to change.

Advice to Management

It feels like senior management just doesn't get it sometimes. They're very removed from the employees and they get all of their suggestions and "strategic" thinking out of a textbook.

    Pros

    Je werd altijd op de hoogte gehouden van wat er speelde in het bedrijf. Ze hielpen beknopte carrièrepaden voor werknemers op te stellen. Veel mensen werkten al lang voor dit bedrijf.

    you were always kept informed about the goings on for the company. They helped devise concise career paths for their employees. Alot of people worked in the company for a long time

    Cons

    Veel te veel vergaderingen. Ze leken meer geïnteresseerd in het idee dat er werk gedaan moest worden, dan in de daadwerkelijke hoeveelheid werk die klaar lag. De werkethiek was zeer traditioneel. Ze begrepen niet dat sommigen beter functioneerde in meer veelzijdige functies, dan wanneer zij de hele dag naar een scherm zouden staren.

    Far too many meetings. They seemed to be more interested in the perception of work getting done rather thne then actual amount of work that gets done. The work values were very old school traditional. They could not grasp that some might be more functional multi tasking rather then staribg at a screen all day.

    Advice to Management

    Focus op welk werk gedaan moet worden en niet op hoe het gedaan moet worden.

    focus on what work gets done instead of how it gets done
