I got a decent offer last week and while I was weighing it against my current job, I couldn't find one reason to stay at Xerox, other than that pay at the new position is slightly lower (single-digit lower, nothing drastic). I'm trying to figure out... — read more
Given the name of this site and the impending N'teenth realignment of the company, a quick history lesson. Since UB's AA hiring in 2009 as CEO, and her dreadful acquisition of ACS, Xerox revenue has declined 60% and the total number of employees has... — read more
Obviously they can't think of any way to do this other than laying off employees?
Categories Include, but not limited to… Worst Product. Worst Leadership Hire. Worst Accounting Naughty-Naughty. Worst Overall Strategic Deuce. Worst Engineering Fumble. Worst Employee Skrewover. Worst Customer Skrewover.
Yes, there were layoffs last week. No, they were not 10 percent as some predicted nor anywhere near that. In essence, just another normal week at Xerox. I don't understand why people get worked up over stuff like this anymore since it's part of the... — read more
I'm constantly worried about more cuts but other than that, this is not as bad of a job as some are saying. I might be one of the lucky ones since I have a great team and a great manager, who knows, but I would be devastated if I was laid off. I wish... — read more
Heard from VP that more cuts to come. All aspects starting with on site associates, sales, technical services etc. Wiping out the road for Q2 earnings.
Xerox is in much more trouble than any of our competitors, that's a fact. What is it that they're doing right that we're doing wrong? Is there anything we could take from their playbook that could be used to help us? There's gotta be something... — read more
If so, why? Any chance the other show boats will be exiting as well?
Uncle Carl in April was still buying stock. Why would he tolerate a CEO on Forbes 10 worst / highest paid to performance CEOs? Something has to be happening as Cabin-boy JV and Uncle Carl rearrange deck chairs on the Titanic. Just can’t figure out... — read more
A lot of people (including the majority of talent) believe Xerox has no future so they leave. They spread the word that Xerox is done for so very few of those who know what they're doing want to join. With high attrition and no backfilling, those who... — read more
Xerox has been sitting on the shelf. There are too many mistakes and it is difficult to decide which one was the biggest.
For those of you that have merged in XBS to consolidated cores. What does that look like, are there major changes? The rumors seem to be true that XBS will be merging with Xerox direct at some point in the next 12 months. Any ideas what that will... — read more
Johnny Vas---ne is #4.
If you found an opening for a better job with higher pay?
My "Leader" thinks we are all pals and spilled some news to a bunch of us. CBS is getting merged into Conway (about time!), ESI going to Kathy DiMaggio (was not even a good Sales VP). Does that mean Tony is out? (doubt it! Maybe the new XBS... — read more
JV stepping down
Change my mind
Good. Now lets consolidate sales channels reducing competition and trimming tons of unneeded fat. While we are at it, cut senior executive salaries, add more field technicians, bring back manufacturing and customer service to the US, and while I'm... — read more
In my recollection he was one of the better Supply Chain VP's Xerox had.... https://www.marketscreener.com/quote/stock/PHILIPS-NV-6289/news/Royal-Philips-Willem-Appelo-to-succeed-Sophie-Bechu-as-Philips-Chief-Operations-Officer-40671480/
I notice that some people are more likely to spend time whining than looking for a new job.
June is only a few days away which means third quarter is only a little over a month away. With MF retiring, the numbers being down because you can’t cash in on backlog orders, layoffs are coming. Buckle down and May the odds ever be in your favour. — read more
Don’t worry if you are a part of the layoffs. Novatech, UBEO, and Flex are hiring. Pay increases probable, quality of life improvement is guaranteed. At a bbq earlier this afternoon, someone heard I work at Xerox and asked me about the Xerox... — read more
I stumbled onto this web page and noticed it was about Xerox employees posting about pending or current layoffs to warn each other or console each other? What is this ?? If this website exists that means you are working for a loser company, and you... — read more
I'm sick of it. My free time is priceless. This time I am willing to risk my job by refusing mandatory overtime. So far I have tried to politely raise the issue with my boss, but to no avail. Has anyone managed to refuse mandatory overtime while... — read more
It is quite clear that X does not make decisions for the benefit of its employees, but seeks to maximize the shareholder value. It may be a stupid question, but I don't see how it will achieve that in the future if employees continue to be treated... — read more
By the way, I wanted to leave after only 10 days here. In fact, perhaps there are those who left only a few days after they were hired?
Lump sum option is in the way out. The economy tanking is only going to accelerate the xerox free fall. When they don't think twice about nixing retiree benefits and slashing headcount, pension funding is not going to be a priority.
It’s true that Xerox is far from a good company, but it’s also not a bad place to start a career. I know a few young people who have made good use of their time here and to whom Xerox has served as an excellent stepping stone. Why exaggerate all... — read more
We are hanging by a thread as it is, a recession would be the final nail in our coffin. I've said it before and I'll repeat it: Xerox is a company that thrived in the past but is woefully outdated in today's world. If a recession hits, there'll be no... — read more
Who will survive the next decade?
Get out now
Execs and sr. managers scurrying and planning to cover staff cuts. All cut staff to be gone by end of June - so look for mid June timing to give them 2 weeks to get people off the books.
This place is so monumentally mismanaged. Working here is not just extremely stressful, it comes with unreasonable caseloads, lack of training, and constant poor management decisions. Sometimes it feels that the upper management embodies the "the... — read more
