The Canon USA Inc, itself is a good contract outfit, benefits & pay was outstanding. Since Canon was my employer who contracted my service to their client. It is this client company that will be discussed, starting off with the site where approximately 83 CAPA members were situated in a warehouse built in a corner with high walls. We all had a 3.5 x 6ft tables with lap top computers. The room was warm 65 degrees; that you would want to wear a jacket or sweater. They offer you free coffee but you have to bring in your own brewer. Nonetheless, a hot coffee in the morning was a good start with a diverse group of people with outstanding diverse experience in the field of CAPA. It was an excellent group of people that you get to know and willing group to assist in your needs if required. The job assignments itself differ from teams or individuals, this was the hardest or frustrated ordeal, most of all depends on an urgency of a CAPA that was given to these teams/individuals by CAPA leaders. since these jobs was not consistent, most people (80%) waited for assignments some never received any from the start (15%). Management overall was going through restructuring during a time of merging two companies, this could be the reason of unclear directions of assignments. Overall, I believe when the dust settles things will improve and will become a good working environment.
