    I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with they are consumate professionals. Our customers who appreciate us more than upper management does. My immediate manager who is old school and allows us to function as a team and unlike upper management understands and respects our views.

    Cons

    Tops down management by people who only car\e about the bottom line with no regard for the people in the trenches. Ursula Burns has got to be the worst CEO to ever be put in charge of a company. She cares for no one but herself and treats people as though they are morons. She has gotten rid of most of the engineers and software people and shipped those jobs overseas.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the board of directors is to fire Ursula and start treating employees like human beings instead of burdens to be let go so as to make the bottom line.

    I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable salary and work life balance. Other co-workers were good to work with. Worked on cool technology.

    Cons

    Ursula Burns and the general downturn in the printed page. I don't see any vision that will allow Xerox to continue to be a technology company. Business process outsourcing or bust.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to improve margins in BPO or the bleeding will continue.
