    I have been working at Canon EMEA full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Canon have a great culture, interesting marketing team and generally allow you to execute the ideas you’ve got.

    Cons

    Being such a large business there are so many processes and it makes getting things so very slow. There are very few managers which means little if no opportunity to develop.

    Advice to Management

    Create a structure that isn’t quite so flat, not only would it give people an opportunity to develop it would be easier to get time with your manager.

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

    Pros

    - some excellent, friendly and clever colleagues in CEL and CENV - amazing, truly multi-national, global team allowing you to feel comfortable regardless of from where you came from - basic IT systems are reasonably well organised - good work/life balance if you are lucky with your management

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

    Pros

    Working from home (if your manager allows it) Good life / work balance (but that’s only for some)

    Cons

    Where to start... It is old school with no vision to the future. Upper management have been there for 10+ years and have no idea what’s going on. Most of the people who were good at their jobs left. You get zero recognition unless you kiss a lot of bottoms. You get bullied if you speak up or if you try to suggest new progressive ideas. HR are terrible. If all you care about is getting paid each month then Canon is the...
