    Pros

    Everyone in the company was super nice no matter what department you were from. Also, there were so many amazing events that were planned for the interns.

    Cons

    There was a significantly older work force compared to younger which always made me question mobility within the company. Other than that, nothing else negative.

    The company has very interesting products and great brand recognition. I've had the pleasure of working with some really great people. Not just smart but kind and considerate. I also think the company has solid benefits.

    The work culture is too restrictive.

    Advice to Management

    Relax the work culture a little bit and allow employees to be less robotic and more interactive at work.

    I worked at Canon full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits
    Safety is always #1
    Great initial training

    Cons

    Wages are not competitive.
    The OJT needs to be restructured

    Advice to Management

    Hold each member accountable. If two people have the same title and are within the same pay scale, one person should not be expected to do all the work-especially once it is bought to your attention.
