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

Pros

Good work/life balance. Flexible work hours. Still decent pay for the area.. Good rank and file workers to work with.

Cons

Jobs constantly being outsourced overseas. Employees not valued by senior management. Benefits are horrible and get worse each year. No pay raise in years while senior management still get bonuses. If you want to stay in Rochester, you have to put up with it since between Kodak and Xerox layoffs, any company hiring is low balling possible employees. Constant squeeze on equipment. Moral is the lowest I have ever seen in any company. Processes keep becoming more and more covered in red tape, slowing work down. STEM based work is not valued compared to low end services such as call center work. Most new hires are contractors only, mostly of the contractors where people laid off and brought back years later at lower pay and no benefits. No training for moving into other skill areas.

Advice to Management

The senior staff needs to be shaken up from the top down. They do not understand what they have in skills and instead spend more time trying to save a buck than make a buck. They also should look at what they have and retool/reuse it instead of shutting it down.

    I worked at Xerox full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard to come up with pros at this point - those who do still have a job on the technology (printing) side don't have to work too hard leaving ample time for activities outside of work or job hunting.

    Cons

    The promise of joining the legacy technology business to bpo outsourcing company ACS has been a disaster. Printing revenues are declining faster then jobs can be eliminated to reduce overhead and the low-skill, low wage work that ACS brings to the table can't sustain the employees of the combined companies.

    Advice to Management

    Get Ursula out - the quicker the better.
