    I worked at Xerox (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A renowned multinationnal IT corporation with a great employee retention level. Used to be such a great company to work for, lots of perks, training, flexibility, good benefits and nice colleagues.

    Cons

    A few years ago, some long toothed, overpaid "business analysts" blinded the senior management with some good looking numbers on paper, and the "major restructuring plan" was initiated... and is still going... and going...

    Pros

    Pleasant company. Good spectrum of benefits, flexible (can even buy holidays).

    Cons

    No salary review for 10 years. Bonus has not been what it should be for 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just tell people they are the best assets. Prove it.
    Talking about salary review and bonus should not be brushed under the carpet.

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

    Pros

    Have empathy. No other positives

    Cons

    No pay rises in many years, Management very very poor and do not know their business. Don't know how to retain the best staff as the Managers are not aware of the staff and their abilities.. Not open to change of structure... Managers avoid confrontation...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ stronger Managers who KNOW the business, not weak ones who avoid confrontation, HR and salaries an absolute nightmare. Complete shambles on my site, one of the mainstay sites...

    Pros

    Senior Management are now aware of the issues beset by a large Multi-National and are in the process of rectifying.

    Cons

    I worked for Xerox IT in the UK which was an amalgamation of lots of other companies with disparate systems and processes. This can be frustrating at times to achieve anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing- they have realised the issue and are addressing it.

    Pros

    Management can be nice and some early finish. Free Training courses of all sorts.

    Cons

    Random firing spree from head office, long hours during busy period and no recognition from company. Management under the same pressure so they do understand... apart from the low pay. No pay rise and a simple raise has to be approved by 6 people!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff moral and pay needs to be addressed.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in London, England
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in London, England

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

    Pros

    Great people with nice culture. Xerox actively promotes diversity and quality. You can get valuable experience in enterprise management. Xerox has a long history of success and innovation. You will be a proud member of a succesful team.

    Cons

    Wages are average unless you progress fast into a senior level which requires a lot of work and commitment. Personaly I found that we spend too much time in meetings without a particular reason. Very easy pace at times when there is no real work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many managers. Cut the length and frequence of meetings and increase the efficiency. Pay more to encourage growth and motivation.

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

    Pros

    People are great, some fantastic characters and stories. Reputation in industry is good. Training is a definite plus. Travel can be an option for some.

    Cons

    Pay is a joke. No reward or recognition for any function other than sales or senior management who are the only ones well paid. Like working in the public sector but without any job satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip. No one cares about your past glories. You have fantastic people in non-management positions, listen to them and not the yes men. Stop managing UP! You are running a pyramid like cult of self denial.
    Encourage difference, change and ideas that are not yours.
