Other than "looks good on your resume", this place won't do anything for you...

Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) Lake Success, NY

ProsThe company is solid and people are impressed when they see Canon USA on your resume. New building looks like it will be nice. Benefits are decent.

ConsLittle room for advancement, poor management, very low pay scale, Japanese control everything and enjoy much higher pay, bad corporate culture. This is just a bad place to work if you are motivated. You are expected to be happy where you are and happy with your low salary. If you say anything you are told to look for a job in the city and that the salaries are on par for Long Island (which they are not!) They scare everyone into being fearful of losing their jobs by laying off groups of people due to "restructuring" (some 20+ year veterans) whenever they feel like it. If you're in the market for a new job keep searching for a better company!

Advice to Senior ManagementStop holding your employees back because you are afraid of losing your own jobs.

    Good place to learn, but too low a ceiling to stay for long.

    Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) Lake Success, NY

    Pros: - Access to learning opportunities through online corporate academy - Good place for the detail-oriented individual or marketer just starting out - Easily recognizable… Cons: - Low salary and ceiling for advancement - Required non-compete contract prohibits you from working in the US for 1 year for a competitor following termination… Advice to Senior Management: Please don't accept the status quo if you see that it is no longer relevant or working for your… More
