    Frustrating. Promises never kept, low morale, low pay.

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

    Pros

    People are great, some fantastic characters and stories. Reputation in industry is good. Training is a definite plus. Travel can be an option for some.

    Cons

    Pay is a joke. No reward or recognition for any function other than sales or senior management who are the only ones well paid. Like working in the public sector but without any job satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip. No one cares about your past glories. You have fantastic people in non-management positions, listen to them and not the yes men. Stop managing UP! You are running a pyramid like cult of self denial.
    Encourage difference, change and ideas that are not yours.

    Pros

    I forget what the good things were as the current regime seems to have wiped away every semblance of what was good

    Cons

    Benefits being slashed, v poor management, platitudes on performance instead of plans and belief in activities, culture of dishonesty, HR policies which are inequitable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave! - you can't do any worse and there is no more money for your pension pots so you may as well go now

    Good work life balance in sales, manage your diary & time yourself as long as you bring in results

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

    Pros

    Company trust employees to work from home and manage your own diary if in sales, a lot of on-line learning to develop yourself, great people to work with, safe job, good team environment which is encouraged inside and outside work. New UK MD is dynamic and is very hands on.

    Cons

    We have had no pay rise in 5 years, too much admin is placed on sales which has been an ongoing frustration for years and results in vastly reduced time to see your clients, new SAP system which was supposed to improve processes has made things worse, getting bogged down with invoice queries due to to inept systems, car allowances are due to go down shortly (even though they haven't been reviewed for 13 years). Lack of legal resource frustrates clients and internal staff alike, and delays deals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring billing back to the UK to prevent so many customer complaints. Commission structure changed January 2014 which makes it totally impossible to calculate what commission you will earn in a deal due to complex calculations based on profit, which you don't know when putting the deal together - give sales appropriate pay and a simple commission calculation you can understand what you will earn.

    It's ok. Very strong heritage and culture, used to be a bit old fashioned but with exciting changes in recent years

    I worked at Xerox full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    work life balance and compensation is ok; recent changes have brought many more opportunities for personal development

    Cons

    some senior managers have stayed way too long and more ideas from the outside are needed. Loyalty and service years used to be very high and as a result sometimes the company was too inward looking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in more senior leaders from outside the company and help them succeed. Their ideas and input will help find new ways of working and generating business. Avoid the 'not invented here' syndrome.

    Pros

    people are great, work/life balance can be great

    Cons

    poor management, IM deliver to themselves, not to the business...lost focus in what is important, not sure if they are even making a profit or not

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a clear strategy and follow it, go back to investing in your people and great ideas, thats what made you great!

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

    Pros

    european reach
    variety of IT platforms - although most is outsourced now
    some nice people around - but they are also worn down or waiting for pension

    Cons

    career progression does not exist
    in 5 years of my time i had no pay rise, as a result my benefit package got decimeted by 20%
    'you can get the next job mister and more responsability, but no pay rise!!'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start telling the truth to the staff please! and stop abusing people just because you can! i think this company needs a srtong workers union as the management is unable and not interested to look after the employee.

    Bureaucratic, understaffed and lacking in leadership, management

    Former Employee - Service Delivery Manager in Uxbridge, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Service Delivery Manager in Uxbridge, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Friendly long-serving employees from better times at Xerox

    Cons

    Company lacks the family feel with lack of leadership leaving staff to paddle their own canoes. IT Projects face a wall of heavy 'waterfall' bureacracy and powerpoint culture, while many other companys are moving to agile methods and less bureacracy. Offices are aged and/or cramped in Uxbridge. US noticeably better staff resourced than EU which is cut to the bone (marrow).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many long service yes men in middle management, typical of old corporations.

    I worked at Xerox as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Strong Support Network from established placement scheme with many other Interns. Training available.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt like cheap alternative to full time labour, rather than potential future full time employees.
