    I have been working at Canon USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Kyosei philosophy that has been the foundation of their global success. Exceptional track record of technology development and invention (Canon is number 3 US patent holder after IBM and Samsung).

    Cons

    Going through challenges of shifting emphasis of business from mature/declining market (e.g., digital compact camera) to growing market (e.g., medical).

    Advice to Management

    Return to the basics of Kyosei philosophy. That means, focus on important social needs and strengthen collaboration with visionary customers and external partners to satisfy the needs.

    Pros

    Boring. Nothing to think about.

    Cons

    Be Aware! Never trust this company. Even though you get a offer letter HR will continue to look for a better candidates. Once they found a better candidates they will dump you! High Turn-over.

    Sales are going down. Look for a better tech company.
