I have been working at Ricoh Americas Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Like most any company; you are employed; you really cannot go very far in the company. Most stay on the lowest rung, and only move around when a contract is lost to some other managed service corporation. The pay will keep you in the poor farm, this might be a starter job, but please jump ship as soon as possible.

Cons

Simply put Ricoh has looked at other corporations, and decided to not regard the employees as in the top 10 reasons that keep a good business. Ricoh sells itself as bright and shiny; it is not most of the managed services type companies are like this, poor thinking companycrats. Diversity is a leg Ricoh stands on, much like EOE from the government, not very good for real thinking people; this is the pride of a company that cannot see the company for the company. Managing a company has no basis in diversity or EOE or saving energy, it one goal to grow in a market not enlist some weird type of imperial froth. Oh yes Ricoh has awards, much like Hollywood giving themselves Emmy's and Oscars, this type of action will not benefit the employees.

Advice to Management

Change by, stop wasting time like the US government on Obama care, all the money, time, and pain having to deal with a government bureaucracy, much like Ricoh and the so-called training, the company bureaucracy leads to wasted money, time and energy that should be shared with the 1st rung employees who are working 2 to 3 other jobs.

    I worked at Ricoh Americas Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a pay check and I enjoyed not having to sit in an office all day. Had a great report with my customers and co-workers.

    Cons

    Lousy pay and the cost savings always involved reaching into employee's pockets and reducing benefits. Was always walking on pins and needle's never nowing day to day if you were the next one in line for a layoff. Work force was reduced to a bare minimum and work loads became intolerable to satisfy customer needs. Not all managers were on the same page, and ran their departments by their own rules. Job security lacked and as a result a lot of "brown nosing" took place. Enormous stress and your job duties and description were not etched in granite....could be redefined at a whim. To many broken promises.

    Advice to Management

    to many Managers are themselves sweating bullets over their own job security, and they have a tendency to be less concerned with their employee's needs. Try to remind yourself every day that a companys strength is only as good as its employee's, and focus more on their concerns and comments.
