Pros

Great medical, dental and vision benefits. They really did not hold back on anything on the benefits side of things.

Cons

Not being able to provide machines in a timely manner is really hindering any sales I have going right now. The office atmosphere is quite stuffy and would really much prefer a little more upbeat attitude.

    Pros

    Good benefits. The pay is OK for college grads. There's good training if you wish to move on to someplace better. I am reviewing this company based on my experience before the Canon acquisition - I do not know whether the company has improved after this event.

    Cons

    Even for people with the same job titles in the same team, each individual's opportunities vary widely, and favoritism is rampant. One representative may only have 4 zip codes in poor areas as their territories, while another may have 10 zip codes in areas with a much larger current account base and much greater potential in sales. This is a good ole boys' club, so if you're a Christ-loving whitey, and you enjoy brown-nosing, this is the ideal place for you to grow.

    There is absolutely no recognition of the company's product when it comes to selling multi-function copiers. Before the Canon acquisition, Oce copiers were just basically re-labeled Konica Minolta and Sharp copiers. You are selling in a boiler-room environment, so get used to micro-management and distrust. Expect to be forced to annoy the hell out of your contacts. You must report to the office at the very start and end of the day, and expect to show how many business cards you have collected. Expectations are unrealistic: you must sell $30,000 worth of revenue each month, cold-call at least 15 businesses a day - even with 3 appointments set, and make 100 dials every telemarketing day. The branch manager and the obese area sales manager in my Ontario branch lead by fear and public put-downs.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you either got laid off or stopped being a-holes after the Canon acquisition

    Pros

    Great family oriented environment, fantastic product line, excellent support culture, very open door policy with senior management

    Cons

    VERY POLITICAL, No salary raises in 4 years, minimal advancement opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Consider growth opportunities for the future with your customers, not just the sale for today.
