Représentante de ventes interne de fourniture (Current Employee), Saint-Laurent, QC – April 30, 2014
The team spirit is so high in my department. The people I work with are simply amazing. We are not only co-workers but we hang together outside of work. We help each other, we support each other, we are here for each other!
Canon has a top product mix, however a sales background at executive level would help company be more competitive in Enterprise space
NATIONAL ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Former Employee), Mississauga, ON – April 28, 2014
Pros: re-numeration is higher than most competitors offer
Cons: leadership issues, unbalanced sales targets and territories
Canon Canada Inc's strengths are it's people, the everyday support group and front line sales force. A typical day would include working with representatives from several different lines of business. This collaborative approach, although not always supported by upper management, was the best way to ensure customer satisfaction.
The hardest part of – more... achieving success was dealing with several levels of red tape and an administrative group that was located out of province. These difficulties combined with Executive level deficiency's made it a challenge to grow customer base.
The most enjoyable part of the job was also the hardest, that was retaining business and growing customer relationships from a corporate aspect. The most enjoyable aspect was the ability to foster customer relationships both internal and external that still hold true post employment. – less

Administration and Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Markham, ON – September 4, 2013
My review for Canon is one that may take sometime to explain.My experience grew with the job as time went on. I had daily interact with customers and various clients that did much business with our company. My telephone experience of calling customers and billing them for service contracts for their Canon equipment built an awesome and rewarding communication – more... for the company. i also had a great and friendly team as we worked closely together getting the job done, which made month end closings quite rewarding.I may also say the management team was helpful and tried every effort to get each person to learn as much as possible while paying attention to details. I called and billed over 200 customers each day sending out invoices information while handling other tasks. This job had given me my first great experience in working in this environment for over twelve years....Not forgetting the hardest part of the job was to get a client to co-operate and communicate, once you have bonded in that way it makes the job easier. That also had become the most enjoyable part of the job and meet my month-end quota quite rewarding. – less

Account Executive - New Business Development (Former Employee), Vancouver, BC – November 28, 2012
Cons: horrible gm.
The Sales Manager that had hired me was laid-off/fired just before I started. The GM and I did not get along, he is a power freak and wants to have FULL control of you. Plus, he has absolutely no management skills and thinks he is a GOD of the printing industry. One of the biggest mistakes I have made in my life-time working under him. The company culture – more... is otherwise good and very young crowd of staff in the commercial sales. For most of them this was their first job. – less
Great place to learn, not so great for advancement
Analyst (Current Employee), Toronto, Canada – September 11, 2012
A typical day is a fast-paced one. I usually arrive early and stay late. Majority of my work is excel based. The other is spent writing reports, sitting in meetings, reviewing competition, and reading reports. Co-workers are great and friendly.
The hardest part of the job is the barrier between management and employees, lack of processes and inability – more... to grow within the organization. The most enjoyable part of my job is working for a global brand and looking after great product. – less
