      Showroom, brand, competitive lab, lunch at Brampton office,

      Cons

      red tape, management, laid-back attitude, low salary, lack of support internally, lack strategy, very high employee turnover

      Advice to Management

      - Everyone just earns of the already established clientele - No one is really taking any effort in bringing in new business - Employees are under paid than market standard - Management brought in a hunting team without a plan or clear policies - Strategies are not thought through - Lack of internal support - Lot of red tape 2 managers were overheard saying to each other that they can pay the candidate peanuts...

      I have been working at Canon Canada full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      I can't think of any

      Cons

      Canon Canada is in the dark ages. Any company that forces its employees to drive to work during a treacherous snowstorm when schools in Toronto, York, Peel, and Halton are closed and OPP is telling people to stay off the roads is not human. Several employees got into car accidents.

      Advice to Management

      Get with the times.

      I worked at Canon Canada full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      - great work life balance (did not have to be in the office 9-5) - good commission and bonus structure - at one point had a great sales team and people to work with who eventually became friends - job stability (even when you do not hit your numbers, the company will not just let you go or fire you) - first year and a half were great, then downhill since

      Cons

      - very low salary (not competitive with market) - upper management (sales managers/director have no leadership skills and push numbers instead of mentoring, training, and developing relationships with reps so they can be successful. Sales managers are more like supervisors who only demand reports every day/week, and add no value in terms of product knowledge or trying to win accounts and going to meetings with customers...

      Advice to Management

      Starts from the top. Upper management needs to set proper expectations, goals and vision for sales team. From there hire the appropriate reps/personalities who will succeed for this type of position. Due to improper hiring practices, your sales team and division are failing; not bringing in the numbers expected. Hire and train managers who have had experience in the industry.
