    Pros

    A very international environment, a very easy-going approach to working with subsidiaries abroad make working at Xerox an enjoyable experience. The pay is not fantastic but the good atmosphere at work compensates for that.

    Cons

    Working as a translator makes you very isolated. Not much interaction with other employees.

  2. Company undergoing changes, if you are lucky to be in a good team it is worth it.

    Pros

    Room to improve company overall IT architecture, and willingness to initiate large scale changes. You can find knowledgeable people in various subjects. Large breadth applications supporting all business end-to-end which boost experience greatly.

    Cons

    Normal issues with large organizations on people, project stability, and timelines of adopting new changes. Can be stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Shed dead weight, connect senior leadership with engineers. Get business linked with their staff. Set realistic expectations.

    Pros

    People are great here and really make it what it is. Nice flexibility for work/life balance. Perks are unfortunately diminishing.

    Cons

    Management do not value the people in the company which makes it what it is. Big difference in perks between the europeans and the americans

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and stop getting rid of their perks. This company use to be great, why not value them again and rise back to the top?

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    Staff moral and pay needs to be addressed.
