    I worked at Canon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Brand and staff innovative - Great general manager who walks the floor and has worked her way up. Always has time for staff

    Cons

    Different departments don't gel - Staff members "catty" about one another and "clicky" groups. You either fit in or you don't. Overloaded with work some staff working ridiculous hours. High turnover of staff. Dept I worked in had a member of staff who was moody which set the tone for rest of day - manager sat in the corner put up with this staff members moods and at times unprofessional ism etc - training limited thrown in at deep end you either sink or swim.
    Not an enjoyable experience at all. On a "cut back" drive to save costs

    Advice to Management

    Gel with your staff and look after your staff more

    I worked at Canon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and time off. Beautiful building. Looks great on resume. Working platforms are pretty good.

    Cons

    Very little or small salary increases. Not much room for advancement, unless you are a man (preferably Japanese). No flexibility in work hours, penalized for being 30 seconds late. Very political work culture. Very hard to respect managers who are not stand up people both at work and in their personal lives. Micromanaging at its finest.

    Advice to Management

    Not everything comes down to vacation time. I would have gladly given up a few days to make more money. Promote from within.
