    I worked at Canon Canada (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice team, easy to learn, fun people. Organized activities are not bad. Is a great job if you are looking for low responsibility and low stress (unless you work as a dispatcher, that is quite demanding)

    Cons

    Felt lots of pressure because they did not hire enough staff. Gets stale kinda fast, not much room for growth or salary increase. It shows that this is a HUGE international company as sometimes you feel a bit more like a number.

    Pros

    Great people, great industry. Canon is a really good place to work. People always willing to give a hand when needed

    Cons

    Ultra competitive industry. Very high turnover rate. Always seems to be sales reps leaving and new inexperienced ones coming in to replace them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to more to your front line staff to stay competitive in marketplace. Be more fleible when needing special pricing when going up against dealers.

    Pros

    If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. Great place to learn. Good Funnel and sales process management.

    Cons

    Competition is killing them, Canon was way too high and there wasn't enough differentiation to get 30+% premiums on companies like Ricoh, KM or Xerox.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more selling tools. A credit card and small expense account is a no brainer. Take pressure off sales people as it's a very difficult workplace.
