    I have been working at Konica Minolta Business Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Konica Minolta is a forward thinking company that solves for current and future needs of customers. I'm proud to work for this quality company.

    Cons

    Work-life balance suffers since there is so much to do and not enough time to get it all done. This, however, is my own choice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep training, coaching and investing in the sales force. When you invest in your people they will recognize that you care ans appreciate it.

    I have been working at Konica Minolta Business Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Good coworkers are a dime a dozen in certain departments, the rest are complacent and comfortable in their positions (15+ years)
    Mostly flexible with days off, but not enough days given
    For the most part, you're left only to do your work but you have to train yourself on how to do your job since there is no proper training given

    Cons

    HORRIBLE WORK PLACE for any recent grads. The company is SO BACKWARDS in their way of operating it makes your job 10 x worse. You will most likely be the youngest in your department and that will show by the efficient work millennials do compared to everyone that refuses to change the way they work...
    The compensation is disrespectful. Beyond low rates for the area and work done. Raises are even worse (0.5-1.5% if your lucky, more if you're favored in the department), you are not rewarded for the work you do. Favoritism plays too large of a role in the company, making it unbearable at times. If you want to absolutely despise coming into work, make the minimum for the work that you perform and run out that door at 5pm, then this company is top of the list.
    Also, you can't work from home. A LARGE MAJORITY of departments can work remotely due to the type of work, but it's highly frowned upon (which doesn't make any sense)

    Advice to Management

    Change your way of THINKING and DOING. This company will not keep up with the times and will definitely not retain some amazing prospects because of how this company is run. Too old fashioned, too much favoritism, and very backwards.
    Let employees work from home, give summer hours (leave early on Fridays) and come into the present.

    There is plenty of room for growth

    My only advise is to hold a Monthly team meeting

    Pros

    At the moment, unable to find any.

    Cons

    Directors who are allowed to bark first and then ask questions later.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of 1950's management. What is more important - hard working, smart, and innovative employees.

    I worked at Konica Minolta Business Solutions as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great location, nice colleagues, family-like environment, opportunities to give back to the community due to the many interactive functions held like: Toys for Tots, Fundraisers, and so forth.

    Cons

    HR needs improvement in regards to Talent Acquisition models and systems.
    A bit outdated in regards to benefits, work from home, and vacation time. Needs to come into the new century.
    As mentioned by another review: Not the Place Millennials would really Thrive in.

    Pros

    Great family type atmosphere, great location.

    Cons

    For a company this size and trying to be a top employer of choice, they are very backward in terms of vacation, work from home or remote abilities, and don't trust their employees.
    More promotions from within at Corporate.

    Advice to Management

    To get great talent, you need to hire well, and respect that they will serve you - in addition, you need to be much more competitive with your benefits and time off. 2 weeks and 1/2 hour lunch doesn't cut it at all in 2016. No millennials will ever stay under that premise.

    Pros

    Very friendly atmosphere and willing to help you grow in your career

    Cons

    Sale, especially the type of sales they do, is a very hard gig. Takes time and dedication to succeed, bu there is money to be made there

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people sooner than you currently do, don't let them prove themselves before you train them. Training early leads to later success
