Receptionist (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – May 26, 2017
Canon is a contract business. They contract with fortune 500 companies for Administrative and Reception positions. The companies you contract with are good but you are not really part of that company. You meet really great people and get a lot of experience but Canon is not a great company. It is a Japanese company that doesn't really have the best managers. They tend to care more about get training hours than they so the people who actually work for them. The benefits are good but thats it.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – May 15, 2017
Manager/Owner is a bully. Rules with an iron fist and is not afraid to us it. Belittles employees, tells false hoods to customers and asks sales people to do things that are against their principals. When I left I was owed several thousand dollars and when I whet to the labour board the owner provided false documents to back his claim for non-payment of commissions. Not a great place to work.
Assistant Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – April 12, 2017
Canon was a typical corporate company so we worked on a very routine base everyday. I have learned a lot while I was working here and I enjoyed being involved in all the marketing activities. I worked closely with the Marketing Manager and Marketing Director and learned a lot from both of them - how to manage all the marketing activities across the company on a daily basis.
The management was great, the workplace culture was not exactly what I enjoyed.
The hardest part of the job was the typical 8 - 5 in the office job and the most enjoyable part was to learn a lot about their marketing activities.
