    I worked at Canon full-time

    Pros

    Culture, People, and Products (in their chosen areas)

    Cons

    Low salary paid to the back office (i.e. cost centres). Products will be superceded in this digital revolution age, eventually.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Canon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Free parking. Close to Macq Park shopping. 🛍 Most staff were nice (90%) Easy to slack off if you wanted. Work from home 1 day per week.

    Cons

    No job growth or opportunity. Low pay (not even market rates). Poor management. Very wasteful of money. Virtually no wage increase. Employees not valued at all. Waste of time being here. HR useless (dont care about you.. only about the company). Location. Job security (they cull 10-100 jobs each year from different departments). Offshore elements of dev to other countries.

    I worked at Canon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good product discounts, pay is higher than similar Coporate Companies. struggling to think of anything else good about the Company,

    Cons

    Long hours working nights and weekends. No work/life balance even though the Company says to take your time in lieu there is never an opportunity to get back the time. Very reactive Company, implement last-minute executions that are never thought out. Management does not ask for input from the people on the ground. You are not valued, you are just a number. Do not have the correct tools needed to do your job effectively. Its like musical chairs with the Management (continuously shifting them around)

    I worked at Canon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Beautiful office, free parking, flexible working and working from home option, staff discount for Canon products, feels like family.

    Cons

    There was a negative mood in the business teams but new management hopefully would have fixed this. Boys club at times.
