    It was a good company to work for 12 years ago.

    Senior Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsI enjoyed my job because it was challenging and my coworkers all worked together to grow the company.

    ConsLately, bad, incompetent management, both at the middle level as well as higher.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlways encourage and show appreciation, rather than persecute your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Used to be OK until the "raise revenue at all costs" mentality arose

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Albany, NY

    Pros"Come as you are" dress code, somewhat flexible schedule as long as you are available 24/7. Bonuses sometimes paid in a free drink at the local bar

    ConsRAMPANT "do more with less attitude". Every team is down to below bare bones and needs collaboration from other teams to complete their work. But every team has a different set of priorities which leads to perpetual gridlock. Teams are getting offshored prior to thorough training leading to constant cycle of auditing/rework/retraining. No raises for most in 5+ years despite managements' touting millions in increased revenue in most recent meeting (although everyone got a free drink of their choice).

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome middle managers are just stuck and can't get through the red tape despite their best efforts. Make a priority and stick with it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    IT sweatshop

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Beaverton, OR

    ProsSense of camaraderie between employees.

    ConsThis is the IT sweatshop of our time. No raises in years, 80 hour work weeks sustained - a toxic environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReassess your HR strategy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Avoid ACS-legacy portion of Xerox

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexbility to work from home. Once you leave, the pain and frustration of working there helps you enjoy your new employer.

    ConsVery poor management, no raises for 9 years, layoffs, offshoring, insufficient staff/tools to service clients, losing clients, no work-life balance, too many conference calls (all day, early morning, nights, weekends). There is zero respect for employees; whom are reminded often that they can be relaced easily. Management focuses on this quarter's numbers. When the numbers are not where they need to be, look for unpaid furloughs, so be prepared to live without a week of salary in March, June, September and December. Oh, also expect to work extra hours those months because of the furloughs.

    If you are in sales, expect high pressure; especially at quarter-end. Also plan on calling your prospect on an hourly basis asking if they have signed the contract yet.

    Management has poor ethics, at times promoting behavior that is clearly not legal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour talented staff has left, is working on leaving, or has mentally checked-out. You need to take responsibility for the working environment and engage/reward the employees. Cutting costs further will only lead to more client defections.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The worst place to work in the world (ACS now Xerox)

    Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) Beaverton, OR

    ProsManagement is so incompetent that you can basically get away with murder (not sure if this is a pro)

    ConsManagement is incompetent
    no raise in 8 years (company wide for former ACS employees)
    20% pay cut after 14 year

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider listening to your employees, there's a reason the best ones are leaving in droves.

    Sinking ship!

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsWork remotely. Not micromanaged. That is all that is positive about this position.

    ConsSub par compensation. Leadership doesn't value employees. HR is non existent. Benefits package is a joke!

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou will lose talent if you continue to take people for granted.

    Service Delivery Manager

    Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) Secaucus, NJ

    ProsAbility to work from home and be with family. Good online tools and training. Nice coworkers.

    ConsNo raises, no bonuses, furloughs and lies from upper mgmt. Complaints to Sr management lands on deaf ears. Most concerned w the bottom line at the expense of their US employees. Upper management works US employees so hard and no rewards.

    Advice to Senior ManagementXerox HR Services is going to collapse unless you invest in your US employees.

    Not Great...

    Services & Solutions Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are some really great people that work here. Pretty flexible schedules, and the ability to control your workday.

    ConsInternal processes are absolutely terrible. Too many agents and partners saturating the market. Too many people have been there for a long time and are very set in their ways. Training was a joke.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
