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

Pros

The people on the team are friendly and mostly good to work with. The start and end of a work day is flexible (even though the number of work hours can still be long). Working from home is possible.

Cons

Lots of shifts in focus which is also reflected in frequent useless reorganizations which disrupts working teams. Senior management does not have any vision nor show that they value their employees. There is very little rightful accountability. Priority is only based on the bottom line with disregard for technology, quality, and talent growth/retention.

    I worked at Affiliated Computer Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some people get to work from home. Co-workers are generally nice and willing to help. Pay is good but not great.

    Cons

    Employee morale is horrible because of bad decisions and lack of direction from leadership. For the last 6 years I heard 'transformation' initiatives but nothing ever changed. VERY good and productive employees were laid off to cut costs with no true thought to consequences. This has caused employees to double and sometimes triple their workload. Furloughs were mandatory for last 4 years to try and meet quarterly numbers. Bonuses and raises have been denied as a result of not meeting financial expectations. Many at Xerox understand what has to change to be successful but leadership doesn't take the necessary steps to make it happen. Some leaders have been promoted to incompetence and it drives talented workers away.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is people are moved out of the company quickly so if you are good and can keep your job you will move up.

    Cons

    People are constantly being laid off or fired so upper management can often be clueless as to what the business is actually about.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what the business is about before cutting off heads.
