From what I can see, the majority of people who were laid off are in their fifties and sixties. Please correct me if I am wrong, but from where I'm sitting, this seems to be true. If that's the case, isn't there a way to sue Canon? Age discrimination... — read more
Apparently, more people were let go from Canon USA this week under the guise of organization restructuring, and consolidation of roles and departments. We're talking people with 20+ and 30+ years of service, being escorted out of the building like... — read more
No such family, just bull Advertising hiring while firing in a pandemic is unjust. Do not believe social media at the firm. No family throws you out the door when you have not even packed your bag. A disfunctional family would. Run far from this... — read more
The place is a sh-t show. The layoffs that were done at the start of Covid were shameful---done over the phone in a group setting--cold, unprofessional--horribly executed. Treated like criminals. It sounds likes it only downhill from there.
https://dol.ny.gov/warn-notices if you search the database, no Canon USA, or its subsidiaries. Is this negligence? Does anyone with any Labor Legal Expertise know anything about this?
This is a generic discussion thread to capture comments about potential Canon layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Having worked for many years at this once proud and nimble company, it was heartbreaking to witness its rapid decline over the past several years. It would not surprise me if Canon was the next Kodak: a company too hidebound and entrenched in its... — read more
US Execs making fun of a great innovative companies like Kodak are an embarrassment. Kodak invented the digital camera ! You are simply a patent bin. Where is your ingenuity ? None !
Managers are being told to look for cost-cutting efficiencies - this also means secretly labeling their staff as essential or non-essential. This company is mercilessly massacring their (older) employees which is having an effect on the community and... — read more
I've noticed recently that some people are being fired for ridiculous things. Small mistakes that many, many people have made before without any repercussions and suddenly they've turned into fireable offenses. Now I'm at the point where I see being... — read more

Yes, bullying is very common and allowed. The ex-pat’s sit back and watch it happen with amusement. The American worker is only a necessary evil that the company must hire due to EEOC requirements. My advice is leave when opportunity occurs. There... — read more
People were let go in the Business division as well as IT this week. Not sure how many but I know of 6 for sure. I guess no one is buying cameras and printers, still… Ogawa is a complete and shameful failure.

For those who survived the layoffs and took on additional assignments and hours worked over the last year, we are confirmed as the s—ers. Get ready for a super weak merit increase. Canon keeps on asking for more from its hard working employees... — read more
They can't possibly sustain the expensive cost centers when the company is not selling product, leasing copiers or generating per-click income. The professional photography segments are decimated with practically no events to shoot. Smartphones have... — read more
Share any updates you may have about Canon Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Hiring after mass layoffs and terminations does look completely wrong. Are we not still in the middle of a cost saving pandemic !
They actually have a person walking around at CVI that has no knowledge looking to lay off people.
Canon va will have another round of layoffs early 2021, Japanese employees will not be affected as usual .
Believe it or not CVI is still hiring engineers!! These are the same people that sit around all day and think of ways to make people’s job more difficult. If CVI doesn’t start using some common sense no one there will have a job
CVI also cut PTO carryover limits. This only hurts responsible employees, as canon continues to hold on to employees that continue to call out and have no PTO . Bizzaro world CVI

Find you have been disposed of, like a used tissue ? Do the same to the corporations , products and services. The corporation will then practice what they preach.
Please explain how this works or is it a fairy tale anime ?
What is the purpose of a US corporate headquarters when you have thrown all locals off the ship ?
Now hitting most employees that have been there for years. Looking at every aspect of your employment record to see what negative items that they could lay you off for so it will not look age related. Even if it was something 10 years ago and you... — read more
CUSA has cut several thousand jobs this year. What’s the demographic breakdown of Kevin’s job cuts? Anecdotally it does not look to be based on merit????????????????!!!!!
I’ve never worked for a company that turned their back on an employee with no warning like this. So much for family first. I literally went to work Sunday night and get a call Monday afternoon telling me I’m furloughed which a few weeks later turned... — read more
Buckle up, this will not be pretty. There will be more layoffs in the next few months, and DC will be hit the hardest. I think we have now entered the stage where job security is a thing of the past for us. At least until the end of the year - if... — read more
There was a message in here last week inquiring if “tomorrow was day” for layoffs. The message is not here now.
