    I worked at Océ full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to make good money if you work hard. Great management.

    Cons

    It's cut throat in sales and there's a lot of competition. If you can get past the first year, it's all up hill from there.

    I worked at Océ full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They'll work outside of their normal wage scale if dictated by the client.

    Finds it easier to lay off employees than to find another position for them.

    I have been working at Océ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Development centers in the US have the freedom to choose technical platforms. There is some benefit to being very very far removed from headquarters.

    Cons

    The European side of the company finds it difficult to respond to market conditions or recover from bad ideas and bad implementation of ideas.

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere, Great products and service back in the day.

    Cons

    The business prevention department was too powerful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With Canon taking over...I feel the good times are most likely in the rear-view mirror. Develop your employees and ensure engagement if you want to make it to the next level.

    Good until Senior Management put their individual bonuses ahead of the company's success.

    • Comp & Benefits
    Former Employee - Senior Sales Executive in Philadelphia, PA
    Former Employee - Senior Sales Executive in Philadelphia, PA

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

    Pros

    At one time, Siemens Nixdorf had the best technology.

    Cons

    Senior Management is feckless. They are only driven by individual greed. Not a very paternal corporation which got worse with Canon. The president has recon photos of Pearl Harbor in his office above his desk taken just before the attack with Canon Cameras.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and make the world a better place!

    Former Employee - Manager in Itasca, IL

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

    Pros

    Great senior management, great employees, great working environment. My management team was very team based. Opinions mattered from the senior VP to the Admins. Many had over 20 years with company. I would have stayed forever.

    Cons

    Company was purchased and the new owner laid off numerous of those people with the most experience with the lines The new company did not have deep knowledge off. They also changed the culture to absolutely no focus on employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out how Oce maintained such high quality employees for so many years and reinstate some of those policies.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Océ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meeting new people. Fostering long-term friendships. Learning what NOT to do and how NOT to run a company.

    Cons

    Outsourcing companies like this believe that they are your last resort. Because they are in the business of putting in the lowest bid to obtain and keep contracts, the employees are the ones that usual take the hit for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you pay, they will stay, and give their all! You hire adults not children. If an adult behaves like a child (whether in management or lower level) then get rid of them. If you think highly of yourselves then you will attract and keep decent people. Pay close attention to the needs of the ones on the lower levels...they are the ones that have hands on experience with the clients. You can't make a peach cobbler from lemons. That goes for your employees, your equipment, and supplies.

    Pros

    Some good value product conceptions

    Cons

    Weak management, short sighted & inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get up to date. Revitalize an attitude of winning. Remind management where they once started. Show concern for the inequities that the reps are taking to the street. Consider some business training, start with Business 101, for the management team.
