    I worked at Canon Canada full-time

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Most of the time, people are willing to help and the customers are great

    Cons

    Poor communication between departments. ‘Open door policy’ is a fallacy, it will come back and bite you. HR is ALWAYS on management’s side. No room for advancement, if a position opens up, they hire from without instead of promoting within. Management is afraid of the President. No one is allowed to go talk to him, even though he claims he has an ‘open door’. No one wants to hear/tell the truth about what happens amongst lower level staff.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee makes a suggestion, management should actually listen and make changes. Ideas are what helps drive a company to be better. Instead management pretends to care and then ignores it.

    Pros

    Great sales training and supportive system to have a successful start

    Cons

    Printing needs in general is declining and it's getting harder to sell. Have to focus on software solutions however it's harder to be adopted by customers. It requires education and persistence to educate software products to customers about document software solutions.

    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.

    Work life balance and people you work with, i was there for a year and enjoyed my tenure. The training provided is exceptional and prepares you for your job well.

    Nothing i would change other then raising the base pay
