    I worked at Canon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flat hierarchy, very ethical in management. Always 'by the book' so to speak

    Cons

    Competitive industry thus prone to downsizing.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Canon (New York, NY (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    3 round interview. First met with HR manager and a few managers. 2nd time went in to meet the same guys again and planned a field ride. The field ride was basically seeing how the daily routine of a sales rep. Going out with one of their reps for a full work day. Good experience. Literally went door to door and eventuallly handed out about 100 business cards. Seemed like out of the 100
    People 1-2 people were interested in the business
