Great Products, but the company spends too much time on process and not enough on customers.

Pros

Best products in the industry with great Technical Support, locally, online and over the phone. Earnings are tough in this highly competitive market, but with the right attitude, you could be $80+ within a few years.

Cons

Company structure is still developing since they lost IKON as a distribution channel. This is one of the most difficult companies I have ever worked in. I'm losing accounts due to poor business process that isn't focusing on the customer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop pushing the "process" agenda and start implementing customer needs changes now! Become more flexible with every stage of the sales process: SOM doesn't work for all deals. Go back to paper orders and proposals.

    I worked at Canon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    * End of the year bonus
    * Employee sale twice a year
    * 401K matching

    Cons

    * Walking morgue. A lot of the employees have been there more than 20 years and have no more life in them.
    * Too many chiefs. No room for advancement. Especially if you are not a Japanese male.
    * Red tape city. Can't get things done fast and efficiently. It is amazing that Canon is still a leader in anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and let young thought-leaders take your place.
