    Pros

    It is one fantastic place to start a career. You go through the same training as all Xerox Reps. You can run your own business straight out of college. It is an amazing amount of responsibility. You literally control the accounts within your zip-codes. You can sell the full line of Xerox solutions and answer to one manager.

    Cons

    It is a small company. People have to quit or resign for you to be promoted. There is high turnover and high stress. Not many people straight out of college can cut it. You need to be disciplined and have a quick mind to learn all of the ins and outs of the business. Leasing, the technology, server environments, internal buying processes of your customers. The list could go on forever. As long as you learn fast and are willing to study you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are making tons of money and giving people out of college a chance to succeed.

    Pros

    A good place to get experience and your feet wet. As a developer, you have time to try new technology as they are not committed to one type language. Work and talk to a lot of different companies so it is good for networking and making new friends.

    Cons

    The compensation and benefits are not up to standards. They should definitely increase it and be more fair to their employees. Since it's a small company, opportunities for growth is not there. There is no programming development standards and common practices used here in this company.

    Advice to Management

    You have work to do.

  3. Matured and "healthy organisation, fair employee treatment.
