ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE-BUSINESS SOLUTIONS DIVISION (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 5 July 2018
Canon is a great company however, the photocopier sales division is severely out of touch with the market. They push hard on over priced machines sold from Canon but allow their own dealers to undercut them. They then turn to the sales person and say, "Why can't you sell this?". Their outdated sales portal looks like something out of 1998; and is not effective at achieving sales goals. Associates are drastically under paid, asked to drive long distances, and are often left paying out of pocket just to accomplish the goals. The management seems to be afraid of their senior leadership that is humorously flawed in their approach, and refuses to say anything about it. In 2018, they have 0 online support in marketing their products.

Working at a process-oriented company can be challenging but when things have been designed intricately to give you more values and smoother workflows , career becomes absolutely promising .Canon is such a work place and if you work hard , it is place you can make a good money in sales jobs !

Great work environment and great benefits but lacks career development program for future growth within the company. Unfortunate. Salaries are also mid range and don't promote employees to stay with the company.

Canon is a great opportunity to build your sales resume and grow within the many areas of a company if you are focused on steady employment. Very good sales training and name recognition for your resume.
-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.

I really enjoyed the years I spent working at Canon. It taught me a lot about persistence, hard work and never giving up. Great Management and ability for upward movement. Couldn't have asked for my from an employer.
