Former Employee - Customer Service Engineer in Savannah, GA

I worked at Xerox full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good basic benefits. Ok compensation, but they are penny pinching too much.

Cons

Too focused on headcount. Lost focus on customer in some areas. Different regions are doing better. Management panel recruiting process focuses more on communication skills than analytical skills resulting in managers who can talk better than perform. Filters out all the "plant' personality role types.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start focusing on the customers and employees more. Make Xerox a better place to work and a better company to do business with.

    I worked at Xerox full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Engineering heritage, large global company with many diverse opportunities to grow within.

    Cons

    Leadership not equipped to take risks and re-invent themselves. I left on my own accord to leave the synergy seeking senior management crowd as the future seemed to be cost cutting rather than defining and executing on new offerings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connected devices have disrupted your core business, you buy ACS to compliment MPS... Why not take a risk and leverage your strong R&D, technical competence to compete in the new emmerging battlegrounds? Why not really re-invent yourselves?
