Pros

Flexible hours; Work-life balance very good; No lack of work or projects due to layoffs. Days go by very fast. DfLSS is encouraged for engineers and technicians who want to get to Green Belt Level. Black Belt projects are encouraged. Good people to work with. Managers are typically well seasoned intelligent engineers who have patience and understanding when solving problems.

Cons

Tremendous loss of historical and engineering institutional knowledge due layoffs and valued people quitting. Corporate Management is cutting R&D at the rate of about of 10% per year. This makes it difficult to get software upgrades for existing engineering instrumentation, new software to increase individual productiveness or cutting edge replacements for scientific and engineering instrumentation. Too many lower end managers. Some only manage 3-5 employees. Silence from Corporate Xerox about direction of company. Problem solving for our valued customers takes much longer to achieve due to lack of resources. Bullish on services and Bearish on Technology. Raises on salaries nearly non-existent over past five years.

Advice to Management

High End Corporate Management needs to come clean about the direction of the company. The paradox of CEO Ursala Burns: Burns is the private sector Vice-Chair on the President’s Export Council. The Council’s mandate is to foster a better climate for US products to be easily exported. Yet, Burn's actions as CEO of Xerox is just of opposite of the Export Council. She has offshored US manufacturing and does everything in her power to sell Xerox manufactured imported goods into the US. No wonder employees liken Ursula Burns to Montgomery Burn’s (supposed) wife of the Simpsons cartoons.

    Pros

    Great place if you like structure and process. Excellent training programs and benefits for employees. Many advancement opportunities for LGBT and minority employees.

    Cons

    This is a very bureaucratic company. Very difficult place to take initiative without considering the politics. Management can be arrogant and indifferent to customer needs. Too many meetings that do not lead to action.

    Pros

    Xerox teaches and measures your sales activity progress very effectively. You learn a lot.

    Cons

    It's a sweat shop. You see people that have a run of bad luck and get laid off.
