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

Pros

Focus on continuous improvement and increased productivity.

Cons

Too much reorganization activity year after year. Do your best to get it right. Expanding upper management one year, downsizing the next - then repeat? Stop the madness.

Advice to Management

Lots of talent in Managed Services - should consider making these resources the Sales Lead in the accounts and train them same as you do field sales. Wasted resources.

    I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, hands off management, well-rounded coworkers, friendly environment, freedom to be a self-starter, job security for entry through mid-level engineers, opportunity to learn new technologies, good inter-team dynamics across a very large engineering organization

    Cons

    Little room for personal career growth, no longer provides employee training, long-term outlook is questionable, massive layoffs every year, strong push by upper management to outsource current projects, no clear direction for the company, low pay

    Advice to Management

    Commit to solid strategy, value employees with competitive salaries/bonuses/raises/profit-sharing instead of lip-service, stop outsourcing

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Xerox are "people". There are many that are very good and genuinely care. Working virtually is a pro although Xerox enjoys many financial benefits of me doing such.

    Cons

    No pay raises for many years. No incentives or recognition. No chance for advancement. Sr. Management in place are chosen by their association, not skill-set. Reorganizations take place every year causing process and people to reset back to zero and start over re engineering best practices. Benefits are horrible and are high deductible plans only. Layoffs a regular occurrence. Message from a senior manager "You should be happy you have a job."

    Advice to Management

    Replace CEO. Stop managing costs on the backs of the employees. The strategy will come back to haunt you. Cut CEO and board bonus' until employees are given pay raises and compensated fairly. If employees do not become a priority, the good ones will leave and the bad ones will be left behind impacting the overall company revenue and stock price because they cannot perform.
