    I worked at Ricoh full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well the job site I was placed at had wonderful people working there. I enjoyed them..

    Cons

    Wow where to start, I was lied to by my boss about career opportunities. When confronted he lied to me. The only people who stay are the ones who will except low wages and have no place to go. Ricoh lifers are some of the most miserable people I have ever met. The corporate training really sucks. Do not say anything during the training they will two face you...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your ground workers with respect, we do everything to help the customer and get nothing in return. Please if you are going to make promises keep them..... I would rather be told the truth up front than be lied to outright to my face.

    Technically interesting, be very afraid of the low qualification of the local management

    I worked at Ricoh

    Pros

    Good Reputation (still)
    Products with high quality
    Market shares quite high
    Territory coverage as a key advantage
    Company size still managable

    Cons

    No room for initiative
    9-to-5 mentality
    Few people dare to investigate new ideas or new ways
    Overall low qualification from local management leads to fear from higher qualified people
    Experienced and qualified people are seen as threats to yet implemented management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake-up !
    Make better use of the people's qualifications instead of feeling threatened
    Provide more autonomy to competent coworkers
    Throw away the heavy internal political tensions amongst directors
    Continue to win the business
