-the only good thing about this job is the benefits (rebates on canon products and good insurance) -boring products to sell and deal with -managers are all horrible -impossible to use your own style of selling since everything is micromanage. -people that do well are usually the suckups -would not recommend this job to my worst enemy.
The work load was high and we had to do overtime during month end. Poorly managed in Montreal. They don't follow the company's HR policies. The headquarter in Toronto doesn't seem to be aware of the way the department is being managed in Montreal. Favoritism. Some people were working hard while others were only socializing. Canon is a good company, with a great philosophy. It is really a shame that the office in Montreal does not follow the guidelines.

Corporate Executive- Major Accounts (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 November 2015
I was responsible for the day to day management of Key Accounts. Roughly 300 accounts. The corporate head office had a subsidized cafeteria which was fantastic. The culture of my colleagues was really great. Mentoring, sharing ideas. Management was not the greatest. Very negative from a sales motivational perspective.
Sales Planning Analyst, Finance & Marketing (FP&A) (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 November 2015
I was lucky enough to get my hands on many other aspects of the finance, marketing and strategy side of the business. I was lucky that I had a great manager that encouraged innovation and different ways of doing things.
In the Business Solutions Credit department, there being two out of six employees on sick leave and vacation. The department was swamped. Unfortunately that left very little time for training.
My different accesses to the programs needed to complete my tasks was not available until the 3rd week of my one month contract.
Canon was a team I enjoyed being part of. My co-workers were very helpful, courteous but again quite swamped.
What I learned is that I love this type of position because of the constant contact with the clients and the philosophy and energy that was communicated by the CEO of Canon Canada Inc.,was very refreshing , a zen approach with his employees, which made me feel comfortable.
It was interesting, fulfilling and very well remunerated .
