    Pros

    Options to work for many different clients

    Cons

    No chance to move up because the organization is so flat. Now it is part of Canon, I don't know if that is better.

    Advice to Management

    Put together some succession planning and develop your high potential employees.

    Pros

    Great company and decent pay. Company offers internal training which was a really great perk to those with no experience.

    Cons

    The company did not have a whole lot of room for internal growth. The only way to grow was to move departments.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to offer an incentive or bonus program as this was previously lacking. Also create jobs for existing employees to grow.

    Pros

    Great place to make good money if you work hard. Great management.

    Cons

    It's cut throat in sales and there's a lot of competition. If you can get past the first year, it's all up hill from there.

    Pros

    Development centers in the US have the freedom to choose technical platforms. There is some benefit to being very very far removed from headquarters.

    Cons

    The European side of the company finds it difficult to respond to market conditions or recover from bad ideas and bad implementation of ideas.

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere, Great products and service back in the day.

    Cons

    The business prevention department was too powerful

    Advice to Management

    With Canon taking over...I feel the good times are most likely in the rear-view mirror. Develop your employees and ensure engagement if you want to make it to the next level.

    Pros

    At one time, Siemens Nixdorf had the best technology.

    Cons

    Senior Management is feckless. They are only driven by individual greed. Not a very paternal corporation which got worse with Canon. The president has recon photos of Pearl Harbor in his office above his desk taken just before the attack with Canon Cameras.

    Advice to Management

    Retire and make the world a better place!

    Pros

    Great senior management, great employees, great working environment. My management team was very team based. Opinions mattered from the senior VP to the Admins. Many had over 20 years with company. I would have stayed forever.

    Cons

    Company was purchased and the new owner laid off numerous of those people with the most experience with the lines The new company did not have deep knowledge off. They also changed the culture to absolutely no focus on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find out how Oce maintained such high quality employees for so many years and reinstate some of those policies.
