    Friendly environment, management that is open to new ideas, and high potential to make money where hardwork gets recognized.

    I have been working at Electronic Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    While being owned by a Fortune 500 company Xerox, ESI has that local company concept where employees are treated like part of a family and customers' needs are handled by local professionals who are being constantly trained to better serve the market and nicely keeping up with the technological improvements.
    Good benefit package, including an excellent healthcare coverage.
    Lots of healthy living initiatives and reimbursement of half of monthly gym membership.
    Sales people are paid for their cell phone bills.

    Cons

    There is no companywide social activity that everyone can join, like a Christmas party, picnic or beach party. But overall this is a much better and fair workplace I've ever worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Worked with several great co-workers. The team I worked with was excellent

    I worked at Electronic Systems as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefit package (health insurance etc) was very good.

    Cons

    Over a period of one year's time , I emailed my manager to get additional contractors put on site. Finally, I ended up being sick for over 10 months, with the 5 hours of sleep then driving back to the job site permanently shut down my thyroid. And then the STD/LTD I purchased for such and event they snaked their way out of paying me, thus losing my car, my finances and having to claim bankruptcy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your contractors like cattle - remember that they are flesh and blood people that don't want to have their health and welfare and finances ruined for the sake of your "quarterly production percentages."

    I worked at Electronic Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Large company, widespread. It's nice being part of the larger Global Imaging Systems family. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional supervisors and poor office politics/behavior tolerated. You're promised the moon when you're hired, but it won't happen. Opportunities for upward mobility are promised but are never truly available to you, nor will you receive feedback as to what you should be working on in order to move forward. The rules will never be consistently or fairly enforced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold supervisors to greater accountability for their personal behavior.

    Help Desk Engineer

    Former Employee - Help Desk Engineer in Virginia Beach, VA
    Former Employee - Help Desk Engineer in Virginia Beach, VA

    I worked at Electronic Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This position offered one the opportunity to work within one's field. Also, one had the opportunity to provide tech solutions within the structure of another company. I was informed that this company was a part of Xerox and that there was plenty of work available for one interested in working within the field, that once one project ended another began.

    Cons

    After working there for only 23 days, I was informed that there was no other work. The recruiter informed me that she would contact me when another project began. That call never came. Personally it is believed that this was some kind of an employment scam. Hire my employee for less than 30 days, you won't owe any benefits and neither will we. (God is watching all of this!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know that everything that you do may be tracked. Know that the computer may track everything that you do.

    Consider listening to folks beside top management. The workers matter.

    Pros

    Great corporate management with clear vision, support for all employees, and flexibility. Consistently sought the best strategy and rewarded employees for quality work. HR committed and helpful.

    Cons

    In Houston...and, division-level management was less supportive. Capable, but not as clearly supportive. Difficult to find anything else as a "con", since any specific points are nebulous and can be found in any employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!
