    Pros

    Interesting projects
    Pays well
    Good benefits
    I like most of the people

    Cons

    SInce acquired by Canon, it feels more and more like a big company instead of the agile small company we used to be. Energy is much lower now. We now spend more time in meetings instead of in the lab.

    I worked at Canon (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company values dedicated employees. Seems that mgmt genuinely cares about employees. Some really bright experienced people here. Very approachable senior mgmt.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion opportunities. Not sure about long range outlook for company. Can be micromanaged at times by some new mgrs (praise more and critique less please). Can be cliquish at times. Slow to make decisions/people not empowered to make decisions. Seems like some of the older execs are being pushed out due to age- not good.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions faster. Offer more flexible work arrangement options. Keep caring about your employees.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Benefits day one.

    Cons

    Terrible managers. Double stands for certain employees. During end of year reviews managers are shocked that the employee surveys were terrible and let it show for the following 3 weeks. Raises are nonexistent and the harder you work the more work you’re given with no extra pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who have no experience in a field. Just because they’ve been with the company or are friends with the right people. Stop with the do as I say not as a do. Way to “inner circle”. If you’re not in it....you’re not moving up. Again double standards on so many levels.
