Here we go again! Put a ball under one of three cups, move the cups around, guess where the ball is. Xerox is establishing 3 businesses to drive growth. You get the point. What's next, three card monte, a ponzi scheme, pig in a poke?
Topics regarding layoffs at Xerox Corp.
I consistently notice less than 50 cars total when observing all 3 bldg 111 parking lots. “Covid-19” might explain until you notice the high percentage of people that are offline all day.
Remember when our UI/UX was something to be proud of?
Anyone have favorite stories or articles about Carl?
I worked briefly at Xerox when Jeff Jacobsen had just left and John Visentin was hired. From this board, I've seen lots of mixed opinions on Ursula Burns, but find it interesting that her identity is still so tightly associated with Xerox, so... — read more
Remember when working here was something to be proud of? When Xerox was a respected name and everybody knew about it due to the quality of its products and not for layoffs and failures, as the situation is now? When it was an asset instead of a... — read more
Xerox Outsourcing Office Support to India As we noted in February, Xerox began quietly shuttering about half of Xerox Business Systems (formerly Global Imaging Systems) offices. CRN quoted one of the affected office workers saying, “We were told... — read more
A friend / ex-colleague got laid off last year and still hasn’t found a new job. If I was in her shoes, I know it would be a terrible situation for me and I intended to comfort her, so I was really surprised when I saw that she was not worried at... — read more
Maybe this perspective is over simplified? Is there a counterpoint? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3NASGb5m8s
Oh, the long sigh of relief I am having now... like the cruise ship leaving port, the noisy city slowly growing less loud and disappearing altogether to a blessed silence....Seagulls and waves. I honestly feel like that. That and escaping prison... — read more
I haven't visited this forum since I was laid off more than a year ago. It breaks my heart to come here after so long to see that not only things haven't improved, they've become even worse. I really feel for my colleagues who are still there and... — read more
I got transferred over to xerox with 25 years experience. Supposed to get 6 weeks per xerox vacation time. I get 4 weeks because they are going off when we were bought by GIS. Complete bull sh!t and seems unethical
I did my homework. Found the fees paid to conduent (it took me a while to hunt them down) and the new ones in the Voya prospectus. For my own mix I will actually see a .0003% DECREASE annually (which is peanuts for sure). Everyone needs to do their... — read more
Glassdoor must have taken it down since I don't see it anymore but there was a hilarious interview review recently posted for a Software Engineering Manager. The writer said that Xerox tried to recruit them based on it's name in the industry but no... — read more
Has anyone that was IRIF'd the first of December finding extra charges like a company vehicle charge or taxes when they haven't driven the vehicle since they were furloughed or extra medical, dental charges for their final mid December pay check??
Im hearing of IRIFed employees who were notified today. can anyone confirm?
Does it seem to anyone else, that the bad atmosphere in the company is being created on purpose, so that we would leave without officially getting laid off, and all in order to have no obligations to us? This “slow dismissal of workers” is more... — read more
It’s clear to me that we’re doing badly because the industry is generally in bad shape, but that we’re doing even worse than our competitors (prove me wrong) and I can’t accept that. Simply, without a clear vision, I am afraid that no measure... — read more
I just got the notification that the Xerox 401k is moving to Voya. I’m not familiar with them personally but there seem to be concerns about high management fees when I google them. Anyone have any info or insight?
I’ve thought about this a lot because I am tired of working for corporations and would like to try something new. Life isn’t work, work pays the bills, you expect anything more from a large global corp you are a fool. If you want to enjoy ‘work’... — read more
When those in charge blame their failures on pandemic I sort of understand... but when I hear from colleagues that they too blame the pandemic for everything, I feel sick. I thought it was clear to everyone that things were going downhill long before... — read more
As the world goes paperless, Xerox - a company whose core businesses are printing and copying - should be noted as a declining “tech” company that has not innovated or pivoted their business in any meaningful way. These are the bad times in... — read more
I've spent 11 years here and I quit on my own in November. I've found a job suppoting IT in a smaller company, I took about 10% pay cut but my level of stress is abou 90% lower. Good luck to all of you...
This was an original commercial for the 914 copier. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swyqrf1PZjg
I realize without equipment sales you have no need for service so obviously they are equally important. Can't then understand why they are not treated as equally important. After all service contract revenues is really what keeps this company afloat... — read more
this post is mostly for sales staff If anyone is paying attention.. did your XBS core do a Presidents Trip this year? People hit plan in 2019.. the budget was set for those vacations ($3-5k per person).. COVID hits, and poof, no Presidents... — read more
When this program was halted, does anyone know if they will still match us up until the time it was suspended? I would hope they will pay what they promised until they decided to cut it.
Anyone else have the Christmas Eve holiday taken away? Or is it just us in the northeast?
Sleazy Xerox had to keep employees until 15 December to keep their US COVID government money. Layoffs in the US begin today.
First the Maze ransomware and public release of confidential docs. Now this: https://threatpost.com/xerox-docushare-bugs/161791/

Just when I think we've hit rock bottom Xerox manages to surprise me and sink even lower. When will I learn, I wonder...
They couldn't print it if it wasn't TRUE https://www.xerox.com/en-us/about/executive-leadership
Several recent messages on here have mentioned that there will no longer be a 401k match. Is this really true? My group hasn't received any communications about this so far but knowing the people running the show here it wouldn't surprise me the... — read more
XBS is literally disintegrating! Employees leaving every day. Customer complaints are the new norm. No decisions can be made at the local level. Well, maybe to buy single or 2 ply wipe. The operations team in Tampa are the laughing stock of the... — read more
I sense not just bankruptcy, but also liquidation in our future.
