    I worked at Canon Singapore full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Very nice colleagues. Many work for long number of years because its a very comfortable environment.

    Cons

    Lack of trust in employees. Many rigid rules and policies. Very hierarchical, must be careful how we communicate to the top management. Too many processes and lack of synergy between workflows that can be very frustrating. Poor IT infrastructure that hinders progress of work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like children of a school. Trust employees to do what they are employed to do, with flexibility. Look at what growing companies are doing right and make changes to keep up with times.

    I worked at Canon Singapore full-time

    Pros

    Peers are fun and helpful

    Cons

    Little to no chance to move up. Pay is miserable. So is the commissions

    Advice to Management

    Give more commissions to the sales people. They are your lifeblood. Your miserable pay is why the turnover is so high

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

    Pros

    Employee welfare programs and many activities organize internally.

    Cons

    Poor pay plan, especially commission for sales. Too much micromanage on employees, terrible working processes, long working hour with heavy workloads without OT pay, poor perform solution support and service team, too rigid with their rules and standard of procedures, always trusted on management’s views rather than frontlines with customers. Old school mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that your views and beliefs are always right. Listen to your employees and allow them to share their point of views to work peacefully together. Too much control will eventually bring up the turn over rate.

    I have been working at Canon Singapore full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Japanese ideals, good management structure, helpful and approachable bosses. Basically, has a calm and stable environment.

    Cons

    Nascent technologies and risk aversion, in some areas, portfolio might not have current industrial value proposition maturity but still lacks the requisite startup culture needed to make things happen. For such immature portfolios, there isn't any systematic process in place, have had colleagues think up product strategies on the fly - without any form of market research whatsoever. But that's something we handle at work...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, very well thought out management direction, generally, one of the better Asian portfolio management strategists I've had to the privilege to witness (someone up there is doing good work). It owns almost a wide array of diverse technologies (like entire value chains, end to end) so really, these guys have a very good top management team that does not need radical changes, especially after Toshiba Medical Systems...
