    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Worked on a great team with great direct managers who cared about the job and the people and wanted to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Too much in-fighting between East Coast and West Coast and UK. Trying to get anything done took an act of God. A lot of lip service towards Process Improvement and LSS, but absolutely no support for it. Huge issues never dealt with. Upper management completely incompetent at doing their jobs and allowed to continue.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your CEO because she is drilling the company into the ground. You have lost sight of who Xerox was and what it stood for. You are allowing the wholesale sell off of your entire technology groups and placing all eggs in one "services" basket, which every other Joe/HP/IBM is also doing. Why not focus those brilliant minds on developing the newest and greatest products? Innovation and cutting edge. That is what Xerox was with amazing R&D and PARC. Now its becoming just another services company fighting for that piece of pie. You've lost your direction.
