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

    Pros

    working hours Mon - Fri no weekends or overtime absolutely wonderful after leaving a job where I worked at least a 50 hr week salaried position
    The company was very accommodating about personal time off, as experienced with a death in the family. I was allowed time off to attend a friends funeral as well, which was never allowed with my former employer
    My direct manager and the upper management were always kind and very encouraging
    All of my co-workers were also kind and very helpful if I needed any assistance.

    Cons

    I did not get to meet most of my fellow employees, face-to-face, just communicated with them by phone or email.

    Pros

    Product unique, good hard working people with the adopted European work ethic in many cases. Defined growth opportunity for individual but limited

    Cons

    Poor business execution, limited opportunity, major disaster in acquisition of Imagistics Corp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe upper management is no longer as it is absorbed by Canon who is also struggling now. Oce Acquisition I hope it wasn't catching.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hold on to the dead end technologies and put them out to pasture.

    Pros

    Good 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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There 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.
