    Former Employee - Director

    I worked at Xerox full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Interested to innovate, excellent customers, strong brand and market presence. Focused to do things very inexpensively

    Cons

    Leadership is predominantly from the 2009 acquisition of ACS (Affiliated Computer Services). Goal of reducing costs takes only spreadsheet view ... no consideration of client impacts -- until it is too late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to re-invent the brand, communicate to the Street that your primary business (outsourcing) has limits for margin growth. Focus on satisfying clients in the LONG term (vs. quick hits to "keep business") and hire leaders who know how to mange PEOPLE vs. THINGs.

    Pros

    Possible to arrange flexible work hours with a manager if you have a compelling circumstance.

    Cons

    No prospects for upward mobility since the organization has flattened out, especially if you are not in the main campus in Rochester NY. Significant reduction in benefits over the years, thus effectively reducing the total pay. Lack of job security: there is a layoff almost every year.
