I worked at Xerox full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Xerox brand looks good on resume, globally recognized. Company still has decent reputation to outside world. Xerox is only printer company making earth-friendly solid ink & product (from Tektronix acquisition).

Cons

Massive layoffs in last couple of years has left employee morale at an all-time low. Entire units outsourced to India, accompanied by huge drop in quality. Little growth opportunity, no pay raises in years, reduction of benefits when technology division shifted to ACS.

    Former Employee - Director

    I worked at Xerox full-time (more than a 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.
