Terrible company - Thank God Canon took them over!

Commercial Sales Representative (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Océ North America full-time for more than a year

ProsI had a great boss there for a short time, but then that boss left the company and that was the only positive about working for Oce.

Consterribly ran company; no autonomy for sales reps; way too much micromanagement; inferior product

Advice to Senior ManagementThank God Canon bought the company

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Major office equipment player

Digital Technician (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

I have been working at Océ North America full-time for more than a year

ProsThey have very good employee benefits and retirement plans. Salary is better than fair in the industry. Company is mature and well organized.

ConsI have observed certain upper level managers to have thrown their weight around. Inordinate amount of pressure is put upon lower level workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not hold on to the dead end technologies and put them out to pasture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good Team

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Océ North America full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood benefits and salaries, my director is/was an outstanding boss, always available and happy to help, she use to make "brain storm meetings" and that would give you the opportunity to show your abilities

ConsIf you want to grow in your career this is not the company, no to many opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are many talented people that are overlook, senior employees are not very nice to new comers and management sometimes do not see this or do not want to see this.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Oce North America now part of Canon Corp.

Training Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Océ North America full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood people to work with, excellent product line, benefits are good. Acquisition by Canon should be beneficial.

ConsPositions still being eliminated due to acquisition and organization restructuring by Canon. Job security not the best at this time. Many long term employees have been terminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would seem that staffing decisions are being made by Canon management without enough input from Oce management. Canon management still needs to better understand the Oce business model.
