Poor Management. Too old fashioned or more conventional.
Team members are very helpful, You work as in a family environment. But the management style is too conservative. Don't ever think you'll bring new ideas in the organization, NADA! You just have to execute whatever they ask you to do. No Question!
Great sales position for a well known brand. Great atmosphere. They are getting a little too analytical with their sales and crm system, but that is a B2B sales issue arising and not just at Canon.
Because of the base salary they do feel like they can manage your time for you even if it impedes sales.
Would definitely recommend working here though if you are just starting in sales or if you want to slow things down and smell the roses.
Not for everybody though. Takes a lot of self discipline and good sales strategies to succeed

Over all very good employer! The trainings are great and the events are annually held with great Hospitality. The food is subsidized, Great employee discounts and many many more amenities. The only downsize is the company is a bit Japanese Culture oriented, Example they have a bell at 9 AM, at 12 noon for lunch, at 1 PM to return to work, and at 5 PM at the end of the day
No Flexible hours, No work from home,benefits for families not paying, big chunk going for benefits, no shares buying option,one great thing 9 to 5 work for everyone not one minute extra to work, eating place mandatory in cafeteria.
Below average salary and management that is concerned with their own well being first. Not a bad company, decent perks, nice building, good people, but not a great company compared to similar manufacturers.
A company who is very prestige but does not have a proper work training.... Some of the people is nice but overall not good environment.... Management have a favoritism with employee. GM IS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNREASONABLE
a dynamic workplace
can work at your own pace
very relaxed environment and co-workers are friendly
management is nice though a bit scattered and at times vague
overall great experience and an excellent place to start a career
If u get a chance to work in sales for corporate role, its fine but as a field sales rep it is worst. You dont get paid enough, gas is fixed no matter how far you have to travel. Monarchy culture in western canada
