    Pros

    Great Training, great team spirit. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Industrie in really bad shape. Competition everywhere and really cheap. Low pay for 50-60 hour a week (entry level job). Heavy bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down in bureaucraty instead of adding more task. Salesforce need to be on the field for as long as possible.

    I worked at Xerox as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Research center in Mississauga is very well equipped, lots of equipment and technicians to help with experiments. Opportunity to work on many different projects that can be very interesting

    Cons

    Sometimes heavy focus on quantity of patents produced over quality. Tendency to patent hundreds of different versions of the same idea. Company seems obsessed with employee diversity to an excessive level.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in North York, ON

    I worked at Xerox full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loved the work atmosphere. Great coworkers and managers. Lots of fun times. The benefits there were really good compared to some companies. Work environment was laid back but people worked hard because they were respected and appreciated.

    Cons

    Some managers don't have the proper people skills and shouldn't be managers. That goes without saying with any company. There weren't a lot of those types though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thoroughly think through massive layoffs. It doesn't make sense when you realize it was a mistake and have to hire those laid off positions back on again.
