Approves of CEO

I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than a year)

Pros

This is for the West Sacramento office: Easy parking; publications department were an exquisite group of talented, professional individuals; its leadership is smart and savvy (leads, supes and Manager).

Cons

None, really...except that when I tried to move to another department, the HR rep was aloof and disassociated, and not really willing to assist.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees more! They are paying 1990s salaries in the 2010s.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Flexible work and vacation schedule
    Great pay
    Easy pace

    Cons

    No inspiration
    No common vision for employees
    "Get it done" attitude instead of "do it right."
    TONS of cynicism and poor attitudes. Very little optimism or enthusiasm.
    Most lower and middle management was put there just because they have worked there long enough, not because they've demonstrated any exceptional leadership or skill.
    New ideas aren't accepted very readily - most people there have been there for 20+ years and have done things the same way the whole time.
    Morale is awful. No one has any faith in the CEO or the management.
    All feedback from managers is positive, so no one feels like they need to improve. There is a fear of admitting that something isn't going to work or is a bad idea or that someone is just not doing his job well enough.

    Advice to Management

    Get younger people in the company. Adopt new ideas. Encourage new ideas. Stop laying people off so much. Communicate more.
