    Pros

    Great culture and work life balance. Young and enthusiastic team. Great support from Japan headquarters

    Due to the flat structure there is very little room for progression. It does help that hey are doing more secondments but they are more horizontal moves rather than vertical moves

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Canon Australia part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good structure. Good salary. Ethical.

    Cons

    In 2014 Canon underwent major changes and unfortunately as a result many staff were retrenched, I being one of them. From the time my retrenchment was made known, I was left on my own with no leadership. My manager just stuck me away somewhere and didn't even bother to seek me out on my last day.

    Advice to Management

    You have to keep up with a changing world. Maybe start looking into other areas of development.

    Pros

    Great dynamic team with an attitude of getting the job done. The company has reinvigorated itself with many successful new strategies to ensure its future growth

    Cons

    They need to ensure the best staff remain and offer competitive salaries on an ongoing basis. The workplace culture has improved over the years

    Advice to Management

    Always listen and consider any suggestions people make as alternate views may be the ones with the germ of an idea which will ensure more successs
