    Pros

    Great job that uses some nice technology and is stable if you are looking for a safe company that will help you put food on the table but that's it.

    Cons

    Very conservative. They talk about being innovators but when it comes down to listening to their employees they are still the old stale followers. Cold stale surgical building with a "Gestapo" mentality suspicious of everyone. They claim to be progressive but nowhere near a Google or others. They treat employees like children monitoring their every move. No opportunity for advancement unless you are part of the accepted "click" no matter how hard you work or how good of a review you get. Job is good but the politics suck.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your hard working employees and see past the BS "butt kissers" and you will do better. Improve moral and you will have a better company.

    Pros

    Canon has a strong philosophy on learning and getting involved. I learned a lot at Canon and am thankful to have worked there. Work life balance is decent. Some people have to stay very late at some times of the of the month. Great as a start off point for someone right out of college. Chances are you won't be rich from working at Canon but they will provide stability.

    Cons

    Relatively low salaries, some times you can feel like you're just another number within a huge corporate environment. Atmosphere can be tense at times but is usually pretty laid back. A lot of cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job and educating your employees. Canon should provide better incentives to employees to stay with the company instead of letting great employees leave for higher salaries.

    Pros

    Great culture and people. You can make life long friends at Canon and your manager has most likely been with the company for over 20 Plus years. great Job stability.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement, and the pay scale is very low for a company headquarter in Long Island.

    Advice to Management

    give the same opportunities to your american employees, as you give to the Japanese Expats. Pay your employees their worth.

    Pros

    Great brand recognition, products and ability to set your own schedule as your territory demands.
    Copier products are great, software products are very good as well.

    Cons

    No structure to support and grow sales in the field. Constantly waiting for someone to support or help you move a sale opportunity through the cycle. Pay is very low on both ends. Salary and commission rate. Too much "bonus" BS! If you do not work at a major office equipped with support personal at that office you will struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for talent. Tenure is very high at Canon yet pay scales are more in line with rookies out of college.

    Pros

    Canon is a world class company with amazing facilities and an excellent working environment. Although upward mobility is difficult, it is possible with a relentless work ethic and drive to succeed. Benefits are amazing, including retirement, medical and vacation time.

    Cons

    Male driven environment where females are given very little opportunity to be taken seriously unless aggressive, focused and prove to outsmart their male colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the cost of medical and dental premiums to your hard working employees. Canon can afford it!

    Pros

    When I first joined the company I loved working here, positive and encouraging management.

    Cons

    Management is constantly changing in and out. Extremely too many supervisors, managers, directors etc. The higher level or even supervisor level management does not care for their employees only for their level and above. All of the women supv/mgrs are extremely catty and form alliances against the lower level. I have never worked for a company that allows this kind of behavior from their management staff, it's disgraceful. In addition most managers that I have witnessed as I pass are on their personal cell phones on facebook etc, or in meetings when they should be leading or paying attention to what is going on. I am honestly not sure what is the deal with management around here, but to me, none of them are managers,

    Advice to Management

    act like a manager, stop being catty, work for your people, WITH them, not against.
