    A foreign company with foreign ideals

    Management (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsAlthough the product is no longer relavent in today's office, the focus and dedication to the technology was admirable

    ConsJapanese management do not respect the Americans or the American lifestyle. They are more interested in playing up to the Japanese executives in Japan than leading the American company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is the USA not Japan

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    In its hey day, it was a great place to work

    Marketing (Former Employee)
    Danvers, MA

    ProsSmall company, but has support of large parent. Convenient location. Decent work/life balance. Decent benefits.

    ConsComany is faultering. Major downsizing with no apparent direction to re-grow or move forward. Products are not industry leading and are in need of major improvements. Heavy competition from major manufacturers. Parent company does not listen to the needs of its subsidiaries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to what your customers want, then make the products that meet their requirements.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Opportunity, but forewarned is forearmed.

    Account Executive (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsManage your own time and territory

    ConsIn Houston, management isn't proactive, and doesn't get agressive when needed. Additionally, mgmt is incapable of managing staff, and they pretty much run him. Corp is aware, but as long as branch is turning a profit, the inmates are in charge. Additionally, often new products are introduced without proper corp. support, and again, Houston mgmt. is very weak on staff training per corp. policy, so staff has to be willing to self train. Also, communication is zero from corp. to staff, as mgmt neglects to pass crucial info along, leaving staff in the dark as to new corp mandates, product or pricing decisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee downsides. Regardless of profit, new management could decrease turnover (save money on training and new hires) and probably double profit margin. This branch and market are large enough to be doing more than just turning a profit. With the right management, they should be blowing everyone else away. They need a leader. Not someone to just unlock in the morning.

    Good company - good product - great people.

    Branch Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsGood communication with management
    Generous benefits and fair compensation
    Employees are treated with respect and as team members
    Good training resources available

    ConsProduct can be hard to sell and sale cycles can be long. Competition from big copier makers cause a cut-throat price war on the streets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the price of the machines so it is easier to sell them in general offices where volumes arent as high.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
