    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Remote work flexibility

    Cons

    Many of the great long-term senior management staff that contributed to the success of ACS was terminated and the quality of the work environment went downhill along with morale. They were replaced by shady cut-throats who had little concern for the quality of products and services and absolutely none for employees. Folks do not stay long anymore and turnover creates chaos.

    Advice to Management

    It may be too late, but consider restoring an amicable company culture

    Pros

    OT was available, that's about it.

    Cons

    Rules changed as much as the management. Old clicky pettiness seemed to still be there from old call center as they hired the same management that brought down the unrelated call center which held the same business. This specific center is no l9nger active

    Advice to Management

    Hold on to your jobs

    Treat employees better

    Pros

    Overall this was a great company with outstanding Customer service that recognised and rewarded outstanding employee performance.

    Cons

    I was a 27yr employee when Xerox acquired ACS. Several reviews under Xerox imply ACS negatively impacted Xerox. The reality is quite the opposite , Xerox under the inept "leadership" of the former CEO single handedly dismantled and destroyed ACS (a potential cash cow). You would think a dead on arrival analog rooted copier company would have leveraged the ACS business model and culture to help resuscitate life into Xerox. Instead they forced their 1960-70 style culture and poor customer service model onto ACS and the rest as they say is history. As a loyal ACS employee it was very sad to see, like watching a predictable slow motion train wreck. ACS compensation model was very fair, rewarding base line employees for their skill & performance just like top executives. That all changed when Ms.Burns came to town, the greed from the Xerox board was intolerable and unethical. Annual raises ended as did performance bonus or they were raised to unattainable levers. But not for Ms. Burns.. she continued to receive as much as 15 million annually despite her extreme poor performance. Make no mistake, had it not been for Xerox ACS would still be a thriving, growing, innovating presents in the marketplace. It's unfortunate Lynn did not replace Ms. Burns. One day when you look up ACS 1988-2010 the cause of death should have a bold picture of the former CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Too late ACS is no more.

    Pros

    The ability to grow in your current position or expanding into other fields was always encouraged. This cross platform approach often lead to innovated and more productive solutions.

    Cons

    When assimilated into XEROX, the focus became one of getting the most out of your employee and pay them less. Organizations were run in silos and dismissed any attempts to work outside of their silo.

    Advice to Management

    The company was doing great before being assimilated into XEROX. If you could break away and become your own entity again, please do.
