I worked at Ricoh Americas Corporation

Pros

Pay is OK
Freedom to set own schedule with customers
They are currently trying to switch to services led platform, over copiers

Cons

Micro managing
Implmentation of sale can be troublesome
Copiers is a dying market

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is losing young talent that actually understands technology evolution because of a lack of career advancement. Young talents sales people don't want to be stuck selling 1-2 copiers to a church as a career path.

    I have been working at Ricoh Americas Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of upward mobility for high performers. Great people work there and there are a lot of resources to help in sales.

    Cons

    Changes are sometimes made based on the bottom line, and not on results. Very complicated processes. Pay is below average for industry. Right now, it seems to be a company searching for an identity.

    Pros

    It is not very difficult to be hired by them. You just have to be friendly and somewhat educated.

    Cons

    Serious ethical concerns were brought to the attention of HR and higher level management. Nothing was done about these issues. It was like they were all swept under the rug.
    Management tends to speak to you verbally, not through email. That way, they cannot be held accountable for mishaps.
    There is absolutely no opportunity for advancement. Also, if you want a raise after being there for so long, forget about it! It isn't going to happen.
    The company does not know what effective communication means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company could function much more effectively if management cared about the serious ethical issues versus small issues (such as clocking back in from lunch on the exact minute). I am speaking for the majority of people on my site. We have potential, education, and talent, and it is constantly being overlooked. Just last week, a manager on my site told me to come into work ten minutes early to begin work, but not clock in until my shift begins. How is this legal? You are losing good people because of ineffective site managers and lack of communication throughout the company. Wake up and do something about it!
