    I worked at Xerox full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Xerox was amazing place to work at and I am thankful for every experience I had there. Truly great people to work with. Great technology and at one point there was true opportunity for career grow.

    Cons

    Today - Its a shadow of its past, Lots of downsizing, resources are treated as liabilities instead of assets and every effort is made to outsource - off shore and divest where possible.

    Advice to Management

    People are your greatest assets for innovation. You can buy innovation at a premium through M&A, but only the employees that care deeply about the company and feel the company treats them with respect and dignity will create value for you.

    I worked at Xerox full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was a great company with great people. Had great benefits, and opportunities for learning and personal growth many years ago

    Cons

    Corporate greed, mismanagement, and an executive team looking out for personal gain, focused on cutting and downsizing, making good manages manage what 3 or 4 previously did, causing people to "burn out", and look elsewhere. Salaries were well below regional and national averages and median levels by at least 20 - 30%, advised a young engineer to look around, he received an offer from another local company with a 40% pay increase - what does that say? Continued to cut benefits to save money, always followed industry trends instead of feedback from employees. Was tired of working 60 hours per week to keep up with growing workloads due to cutbacks and transfers or retirements, so were many others - who just gave up caring.

    Advice to Management

    Consider personnel as your greatest asset. Everyone eventually knew that the shareholders and quarterly / annual returns were what mattered to management, not those who were desperately trying to achieve them.

    I have been working at Xerox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work remotely. A few great people left at Xerox. Innovative products and services.

    Cons

    Zero organizational support. Company focused on increasing profits and reducing cost (headcount) in an effort to sell company. Positons being rebadged to HCL, it's a disaster. Carl Icahn destroyed Xerox!

    Advice to Management

    Just sell the company already and stop taking money out of your employees pockets. And stop moving people around and shifting accounts, it makes the company look so unstable to customers. It's embarrassing.
