Good people, good amount of work.
A lot of people are very friendly, and very open to help out new hires.

Cons

Huge divide between divisions that create very redundant meetings.
Very repetitive work.
Lack of creativity due to being a very tall organizational structure.

Don't just talk about having more creativity, enact it.
Take more chances.

    Japan-centric management that requires approval for every decision. Glass ceiling with nowhere to rise for talented employees. HR needs to appreciate work of employees better.

    I have been working at Canon USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Short commute (for now until they move to Suffolk)

    Cons

    Where to start? We can first talk about the reason why we work, money. They pay Americans much much lower than Japanese. Okay, maybe with hard work you will go high in a company- say after 5 years of hard work. NO! Not here. I have been with the company for 5 years and not received anything other than a "job well done". In my department, Program Management, the bosses are all friends with each other socially. They gossip together, spread rumors together and do not promote in fear of losing their own jobs. The managers and supervisors, minus one, do NOT have the backs of their employees and rather see them get fired than help. Lets now talk about job security. Over 200 plus people have been fired or left in this department alone since I have been there. That says it all. Just to recap, low pay, bosses that gossip and talk bad about their employees and no room to grow. Skip this place. Also, the people in charge of PM should learn how to talk.
