Pros

Good benefits and a way to get a start toward working in an office environment.
Company has tuition reimbursement so a bit of advice get your education and afterward leave for better pastures.

Cons

Low pay and you have to apply multiple times (beg) to get a promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better pay and acknowledge that your kiss-ups are always not the best people for the promotional advances.

    Pros

    Canon is a large company that is able to provide great support systems that other small competitors do not have available to them. Canon Business Solutions offers great health benefits packages. For people at the beginning of their careers, Canon offers excellent training programs.

    Cons

    Canon is too slow to react to market changes in order to stay competitive. The decision making and processes are too inflexible to stay up to date with the changing sales environment. It seems like upper management is out of touch with the real situation in the market place. In addition, the employee moral is extremely low. This could be a result of the compensation packages being lower than industry averages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More decision making power needs to be given on a local level. Canon loses many opportunities due to slow decision making.

    Canon products tend to be more expensive than most competitor's products, with little true differentiation and additional value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the channels to avoid inter channel competition.
