    Good environment, 9 to 5, great work life balance

    Cons

    Difficulty to grow in some departments. Upper management mostly Japanese so communication can be hard

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within, people feel they are not appreciated because they are limited in how much they can grow over time

    Pros

    Smart people, talented individuals, quiet environment

    Cons

    I witnessed mental instability in the form of desk pounding, yelling, the enraged squeezing a Costco Peanut Butter Pretzel jar, and the muttering of curse words regarding a project sponsor.

    Some of the above information was higher up regarding such events and nothing was done.

    Individuals here 15+ years will not get removed due to company culture.

    If interviewing here, find out who the old timers are and know that younger Canon employees will not sell out the dirty laundry.

    Pros

    Job security, if you can navigate the American/Japanese divide.
    Solid benefits package typical of a large company.
    Big company, you can always find kindred souls and support.

    Cons

    Culture clash between Japanese and American style of work.
    Language barrier between Americans and Japanese ex-pats.
    Tension between American managers and their Japanese overseers creates tension and confusion for individual contributors.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of educating the workforce of what it means to work for a Japanese company during the interview process. Better to be up front.
