    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Xerox as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive work environment with a relaxed atmosphere and pretty decent mentor ship. I worked as an intern for a few months and had a mostly positive experience and had great relationships with my coworkers.

    Cons

    I did not really have enough assigned responsibilities. I was the only intern in my division, and one of the few in the entire office building. I found that I did not have too much to work on and I often resorted to busy work.

    Advice to Management

    Give the interns a bit more work. I know that you do not want to overwhelm them, but there should be a bit more to do day to day. I sometimes went entire days without a real concrete idea of what I should be accomplishing. I still had a positive experience overall.

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

    Pros

    Xerox is a high tech firm that is struggling to find its identity. Every year it goes with one or the other transformation initiative with none completed. of late if you are following the market its splitting the company in 2.

    Cons

    Xerox is good if you live in Rochester, if you don't live in Rochester and any other location forget about career growth . This is a Rochester centric company. Although they call them global. they are not global in any ways. The people in Xerox are highly tenured Avg experience ranges from 20+ years. Freshers dont stay other the interns who are not in Rochester area no one stays

    Advice to Management

    Please hire new fresh blood you, Provide carrier path and opportunities to people in location other than Rochester

    Pros

    May provide broad breadth of experience

    Cons

    Future of company very unstable. Outsourcing / Offshoring strategy without investment in infrastructure has created poor execution of business transactions across all facets of business. Environment is toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Need to commit to the Technology business with investment in product development and transactional infrastructure.

    Pros

    interesting challenges, some gifted talent within the company. diversity in work activities made sure I wasn't bored. There is great potential for business growth. At a high level, the company has great aspirations and provides good benefits.

    Cons

    Growth potential is not consistent, communication overload causes confusion... I found the environment not be be very supportive of women and at times, it was a hostile place to work despite clearly documented policy to the contrary. Corporate values don't seem to trickle down past middle management...possibly lack of leadership at a higher level or a reflection of societal issues as a whole. I would not recommend a friend or loved one to work here at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus, find your corporate identity and get back to the basics of caring for your customer and employees. Follow through and hold management teams accountable for the values you espouse.
