    I worked at Xerox full-time

    Pros

    Worked here for a bit over a year as a mechanical design engineer. Everyone is extremely patient and willing to take time out of their day to show you the ropes. It has a very open minded atmosphere where no one is shut down for their ideas. My manager was kept me motivated and had a very clear direction for program goals.

    Cons

    Some open and explicit, but warranted negativity towards the company CEO and direction gives new hires a less than ideal impression. There were not many other younger engineers to connect with.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was on point; others should take as an example and follow.

    I have been working at Xerox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have a flexible schedule and work environment.
    My day to day is spent with many super-smart people eager to share their knowledge, experience, and guidance.

    Cons

    Some of the "right" people are in the "wrong" positions. Assignments do not necessarily play to individuals' strengths.
    In my building, there is a low level of enthusiasm for the company as a whole... a passion for the specifics of what people do, day to day, but a general lack of energy and outlook for the future of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people who do the work with insight into what is happening at the higher levels in terms of decision making and strategy. Share and ask specialists for input, even if the outlook is less than stellar.

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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance for families.
    Individual engineers, techs, and analysts are serious about delivering the best quality products.

    Cons

    Mid level and especially upper management are too busy playing with money than generating great products.
    Outsourcing has not helped the company.
    Engineering management has trouble getting onboard with the latest technology.
    Salaries and benefits have been stagnant for years now. They keep paying people just enough to keep them from looking elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing games and create products

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, some opportunities to make product proposals, projects in many industrial and scientific fields.

    Cons

    Too many management layers, no company vision (or changing every year), no field specialization, bad project staffing and prioritization, use of old and proprietary technologies, difficulty to have exposition to customers, few actual product deliverables yielding a sentiment of low professional satisfaction and even regression in technical skills.

    Advice to Management

    Cut management layers and replace the "fat" by actual "doers", get rid of the matrix structure, focus and specialize in a handful of fields, choose your battle and do it well (research or development, not "both but neither done properly"), and get a new CEO (can't be worse than the current).
