    I worked at Canon Canada full-time

    Pros

    Great place to learn but so many more reasons to never work here.

    Cons

    Too many to list. If you are not a fresh graduate avoid it. Will do nothing for your career and management style is straight out of 70s with a military regime. Top it all off they under pay you by at (financial analyst making 40K)

    Advice to Management

    Adapt to Canadian culture, dont enforce Japanese work culture on your employees. Pay way more, every role is 20K below market rate.

    Pros

    Overall a great company that treats employees fairly and with realistic expectations. The company has an excellent training program and sales management team that will help develop your sales skills. The company offers numerous incremental career path advancements as your sales skills increase and you gain more experience in more successive Sales roles.

    Cons

    Not a lot to say here. If you do not want to put the work into being successful than any Sales job is really not for you. The office equipment market is mature with lots of competition between vendors and suppliers. You have to have the drive to make things happen and the will to beat out the competition,

    Pros

    Great technology. Great benifits plan. Nice people.

    Cons

    Poor management. Low salary. Not much opportunity to grow. In hiring, racial bias is still a problem. Lack of diversity in sales and management (99% white - besides the call center). White man manage and sells printers & solutions. Black man answer phone in call center. Very old school way of selling. Poor culture not in line with any new organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Need a culture change.
