Quiet workplace with good job security
Logistics Coordinator III (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 25, 2018
While the job security at Canon is great (its very hard to lose your job there), depending on your role, you can find yourself working at a very slow job. Additionally, the company tries to make the office a place where employees enjoy working, and try to provide good work/life balance. However, they do not go far enough, as the hours are inflexible and employees cannot work from home without burning an off day.
Lastly, some hirer manager position are often held exclusively from Japanese expats from the Tokyo headquarters, leaving only limited positions for advancement by someone else.
Relaxed environment, low pressure
Low opportunities for advancement, inflexible hours.
