Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Xerox full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Friendly long-serving employees from better times at Xerox

Cons

Company lacks the family feel with lack of leadership leaving staff to paddle their own canoes. IT Projects face a wall of heavy 'waterfall' bureacracy and powerpoint culture, while many other companys are moving to agile methods and less bureacracy. Offices are aged and/or cramped in Uxbridge. US noticeably better staff resourced than EU which is cut to the bone (marrow).

Advice to Management

Too many long service yes men in middle management, typical of old corporations.

    No clear direction in terms of development/progression
    Many of the tasks were generally quite repetitive without much variation or challenges

    I worked at Xerox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company pay was reasonable but people who had been there in the good years where getting paid better for the same job. Enjoyed the people I worked and it is a pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past which has been said before, I had a customer facing role and the company issued phone was Nokia 3310. Not much work life balance, culture of work through lunch and after hours with no overtime reward or time in lieu. Very little communication outside your region of work so you could possibly be working on a similar project/ account as someone in the same country let alone globally so not much knowledge sharing. Lack of direction in the past few years who knows where the company is heading. All training cut back to almost nothing in past 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    To much middle management and dead wood. Need to start walking the talk when it comes to technology.
