Poor support for sales efforts
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE-BUSINESS SOLUTIONS DIVISION (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC5 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Their outdated sales portal looks like something out of 1998; and is not effective at achieving sales goals.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.

Horrible company to work for
Commercial Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC24 January 2017
-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.
Pros
none

Good salary. Poor management (Montreal)
Sales Adminstrative (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC9 January 2017
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.
Pros
Salary
Cons
HR guidelines are not respected in Montreal

Would recommend Canon.
