    I worked at Xerox as an intern (less than a 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.

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

    Pros

    When paired with a competent trainer/mentor Xerox can be a source of tremendous training in sales and Sales Management Process.
    Much of what you learn with Xerox you can apply in future endeavours.

    Cons

    Unfortunately Xerox cannot define itself. Do they sell devices? Do they sell services?
    Xerox's big bet has been on services such as Managed Print Services and due to heavy layers of bureaucracy and middle managers whose job seems to be mostly justifying their title, the company can no longer execute and customers seem to be leaving en masse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to being a sales focused organization. Go for the win and reward true performers.
    Go back to doing what you used to do so well.

    I worked at Xerox as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get a job that provides you with some income to survive.

    Cons

    Very low salaries. People have to work as contractors for years before they get hired directly by Xerox. No benefits. No sick days. You have to use your personal car to do the job. A lot of pressure from management on a daily basis.
    Treating employees like ......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the organization to the 21st century. Treat employees with respect. Fairly compensate employees.

    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.
