    Pros

    Good people, many options to change if you don't know exactly what you want to do as a career. Many people stay for many many years

    Cons

    Xerox need to ensure that they keep up with market rates if you want to keep your experienced staff.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good comradery with colleagues.
    Made some really good friends.
    Allowed to 'work' from home which can be very handy at times.

    Cons

    All the best people have left or taken the money and run! Those who had the experience, knowledge and skills have left. No salary increase for 7 years. Always cutting back and getting us to do more with less. The fun has gone out of the company. It used to be a truly great place to work with rewards for effort and there was real team-work. Now everyone works in isolation. Have to get permission to drive to another office in order to meet the right people to sort out a problem. No money and little motivation to do anything.
    In higher management its jobs for the boys. It's not how good you are but who you know, play golf or sail with! All the good guys and gals have gone and all have done brilliantly in other companies.
    No benefits at all. Can't buy anything at employee rates.
    Was a great company to work for once, now a rather poor one.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the going rate.
    Spend some money.
    Get some people in who can motivate.
    Bring fun back into the business.
    De-stress the employees.
    Stop being so greedy and reduce the margin to win some business.
    Some have retired after working over 30 years and did not get any recognition from management - no letter, email or handshake good-bye. Very poor.

    Former Employee - Personal Assistant in Uxbridge, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Great perks - could freely work from home, money seemed to be no object in terms of hotel stays, flights to different countries, attending great away days and the managers I worked for were, on the whole, non-demanding and let me get on with my role at my own pace.

    Salary was also great, considering I didn't do all that much work!

    The people is what made my role worthwhile - lovely folk and considering where I went to afterwards, I really should have stayed. Still, I am happy in my present role now, which is a Godsend.

    Cons

    As I was a contractor, I worked for an external agency and there was a sense of a 'carrot on stick' approach as to my being made perm. As a result I never got made perm, despite being there for a year and a half.

    Waste of money was huge - you had directors/ managers flying down from their houses each week, spending nearly £400 on hotels and dinners. I could understand if these were one-off or isolated incidents, but the company refused to pay £3k for a (booked) Christmas party for all the staff that had worked hard over the year. In the end, HR decided to cancel the party just 24 hours before it was due to happen and as a result, the company never recouped that £3k back. It was so petty and mean and frankly, signalled to me that I should start looking elsewhere.

    My then-boss also resigned, as he hated the culture at Xerox. He was only there for just under 2 years as well.

    There were a lot of members of staff that were unhappy - at the time, Ursula Burns had taken another huge pay-rise and yet, people who had been working there 20+ years were being laid off. A sign or the times or completely immoral? You decide.

    Advice to Management

    Don't go in for this 'blue sky thinking' & having meetings about meetings - the print industry is shrinking and it is middle managers that need to be made redundant, not the people who actually work. To make one person do the job of three is completely unfair and immoral. No wonder you are worried by the likes of Ricoh & HP...
