Pros

good products. good office working conditions. renumeration abiove average

Cons

excessive hours per week. excessive travel and poor expenses package. Home life compromised
Remuneration package not in best interest of customers

Advice to Management

. learn more about the products you sell.Recognise undue presures on subordinates early to ensure remedial action taken (before they go sick with stress/depression). Do not set unrealistic targets to drive subordinates.(its very short term and ends in failure).Canon used to be a happy company with excellent customer relationships! Why has this changed? If the fish has gone bad, look at its head!

    Pros

    The people make this job great team work mentality and lots of opportunity for development , competitive pay and family friendly

    Cons

    Not every department within Canon ha same policies, it can't be one rule for one and one for another more consistency across the board is needed

    Advice to Management

    Reward and recognition is always high on the list of wants, sometimes it would be nice to be more recognised for a job well done by management not just colleagues

    Pros

    Big company with a huge global brand. Very good products from cameras through to production printing equipment and medical imaging devices.

    Cons

    Completely no idea how to encourage valuable people to flourish with an almost bullying atmosphere which is very toxic. Canon allows the BRAND to dominate their thinking, letting more discrete players win market share. I had to leave because I wanted a good work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your colleagues and stop sucking the life out of them.
    Value the customer as much as profit.
    Employ more diverse people in key roles, not just white males.
