I worked at Xerox full-time (More than a year)

Pros

None.. i don't work there anymore.. some of the line people were really good to work with and for but Sr. mgt has the worst culture ever.

Cons

Worst possible leadership. GM is devoid of any leadership, any morals, any anything. Horrible, outdated technology, no future, layoffs, travel freeze, "Sr. Mgt" has no direction, the GM has no rudder. Just do not go work there--oh wait, you can't, they have a hiring freeze.

Advice to Management

Develop a sense of integrity, be honest.

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

    Pros

    Lots of great people willing to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Senior team plays more to politics to help their own careers than to the actual program, projects, people and customer. People walk the hallways sad, and dead, no glitter in their eyes as in the past when Anne ran the show.

    Advice to Management

    Have lower level managers become consultants and influencers to senior team. Senior members who offer no value should go. There are old antiquated people who care nothing about the company and only themselves.They are blockers to innovation and profitability.

    I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Depends on which side of Xerox ... Real Xerox, or ACS pretending to be Xerox. On the Real Xerox side you will have a better holiday schedule, no furloughs (no weeks off without pay), management that typically cares to hear your opinion and help, good working relationships with peers.

    Cons

    On the ACS pretending to be Xerox side (they will tell you "We are Xerox services" and "We are all one company" ... lies) you can expect to have a single focus: finding your next job. Their sole focus is on reducing cost, typically by moving jobs overseas or sometimes simple elimination. You can expect to work 60 hours a week with no "thank yous", and when management screws up, which is the normal mode of operations, you will get to experience a week off without pay. Expect to be working side by side with a Real Xerox person in the next cube who has better salary for the same work, better holidays, better vacation, better 401K benefits, and a better health plan.

    Advice to Management

    Your workforce hates you, and your management capabilities are dreadful. Stop worrying about how to maximize your own personal paycheck and start focusing on how to truely help your customers. Stop the lies: Xerox is no more "one company" than Ford and Kraft Foods are one company. Ursula states "we need an all for one and one for all attitude": you got it half right as it's "all for Ursula". When everyone in the company takes a pay cut, you should too, and it should hurt just as much.
