    I worked at Affiliated Computer Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Poor communication, no transparency, terrible work environment. Lots of great employees overlooked, dismissed and never saw a raise in years. Performance Reviews are a joke, no one ever rates above average. I would recommend not taking a position in this company.

    Cons

    It's all cons, not a pro in sight.

    Can't think of any. The only positive thing you can do is search for another job at another company
