    Pros

    It is a good job to build your resume, but it comes with a lot of BS. My main problem is the lack of compensation.

    Cons

    You are given a low base salary (30K), including travel expense, and are expected to travel all over for low pay. The only way to make money is to build margin into your deals, which is truely only possible if you have a current customer to work with. In order to gain ZBA business, a large margin of the time you have to be negative on your deal to be competetive (typically 4-5 Vendors) . You work your but off to close deals, then deal with Ricoh's problems (delivering broken equipment, two month equipment delivery time, techs that can't network copiers to IT infrastructures) to be compensationed about $200 dollars for every 10k closed. THATS Terrible!!! All the while, you are constantly fighting with Ricoh order processing to process the order (typically 20 - 60 pages depending on the order, which you do). On top of that you deal with managers always trying to close business, when you can't even get your orders delivered for that month. Don't do it, plus they fire anyone not performing very quickly. They actually fired many good people that were doing great at there jobs back in novemeber..... FINAL NOTE: The copier industry has become commidotized. It will be gone in several years, at least on the Small to medium business level. Ricoh's focus will be on IT services they can't deliver and copiers to large enterprises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no managment since, they fire all leaders every several months anyways.

    Pros

    Ricoh is very competitive and has a very long, diverse and aggressive business plan which should allow it to survive future economic conditions. If you like "change" then this is the company for you because Ricoh is always changing and adapting.

    Cons

    Ricoh has a very strict hierarchy where communication can be diluted or lost from workers to upper-management. The average employee feels a sense of paranoia and are fearful of expressing opinions and suggestions to management, especially if it involves a problem or criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take extra measures to encourage and reinforce employee feedback and creativity.
