Too focused on short-term profit.

SBU Executive (Current Employee)

I have been working at Xerox full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSome very smart people are trying to make things better.

People generally care about each other and try to provide assistance and support.

There is some real innovation going on that is exciting and has amazing potential.

ConsThe only thing that matters is profit and clients come second to making numbers. Executive leadership is far too focused on short-term profit and getting their bonuses.

Never "off the clock" at any level. The best and brightest burn out with overwork and leave.

Executive management decisions continually make the experience worse for employees.

Force reductions have become a way of life.

Advice to Senior ManagementConstant churn is more expensive than setting goals and sticking to them. ITO isn't the same as BPO and you need to stop trying to manage them the same way. You are losing your best performers to overwork and an off-shore strategy too focused on short-term profit taking.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Wonderful Growing Experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Xerox full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis is a brand that commands attention and gets responses from vendors. It garners respect that is helpful when positioning a product that could otherwise be challenged.

ConsWages are not competitive and have been frozen for years for most employees. There is no plan to change that, even though the company is doing better. Cost control actions are not executed in the least painful of ways and this results in a huge company that is gushing talent.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet competitive on salary within the market. Get the right people facing the customer(s). Consolidate the leadership teams and start functioning as one company, not dozens.

Challenging work, however no room for advancement and non-competitive compensation

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Hamilton, NJ

I have been working at Xerox full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThings are always changing and the work fluctuates constantly. If you like change that is a good quality, if you are not adaptive, then look elsewhere

ConsNo room for growth and compensation is low, also no raises in the last 5 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork harder at retaining good employees through fair compensation practices. What good is an excellent yearly review when it results monetarily the same as a mediocre review?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Locked in Process & Few Opportunities

Client Asset Manager (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

I worked at Xerox full-time for more than 3 years

Pros*The Xerox name still looks good on a resume
*A good place to get corporate experience
*There is a process for everything
*There are some good people working at Xerox

Cons*There's not much left at Xerox - the focus has shifted to services. Hopefully MPS will be able to sustain the entire company going forward.
*There is a process for everything - that may sound contradictory, but to be locked in a process in every situation limits the ability to make a client happy.
*Cliques. Advancement is rarely a result of performance and more likely who you know.
*Long hours with little reward.

My experience at Xerox was very pleasant.

Sales Intern (Former Employee)
Irving, TX

I worked at Xerox as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe benefits were great at Xerox. They also allowed the employees to have a mind of their own and allowed them to speak their mind.

ConsIt took a lot of long days. You really had to put in some long hours to get the job done correctly.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to get on a more personal level with employees. Create a smaller company vibe.
