I gotta ask, what the he-l is keeping you here? Customers dropping like mad, they are tired of AR issues, HCL a disaster, customers are catching on that they are not dealing with people in the U.S., nobody is paying their invoices, constant buyout... — read more
Perhaps this dying company is just a victim of rapid technological change but I often wonder if Xerox would have succeeded if it had had more competent leaders? Maybe everything would be different if the leadership knew how to carry out a successful... — read more
Has Xerox allowed you to purchase your lap top if you are VRIF or IRIF ?
Yep. So the next generation of production presses are here. Revoria PC1120 replaces the Iridesse with AI based ImageEnhance and full auto blending of specialties like pink so those who Adobe Illiterate customers and analysts can finally do something... — read more
I actually wondered if they simply took most content out of a 2019 report. Highlights from 2Q 2021: More cost optimizations (layoffs) Admission of failure on non-print initiatives . “ Part of our strategy includes working with strategic... — read more
I really liked someone’s motivational post that the skills someone has developed here are more valued than people think. Yes, X has mostly ruined people’s self-esteem. However, we should also be realistic. I don’t think I’ve managed to develop some... — read more
So, Xerox is working with a 3rd party company to replace existing Service systems? Knowing how incredibly difficult it was to move internal integrated systems onto off-the-shelf platforms, I can't imagine a wholesale transition to another platform... — read more
We are the company of the past. There is no place for us in the future. The world is changing and we are quickly becoming an outdated relic. There are still some years ahead of us before time completely catches up with us, but it's inevitable. I... — read more
I'm a tech at a GIS, now XBS core. From what I understand, X bought GIS years ago because we were efficient and profitable. They left us alone for several years, but the last few months have been a disaster with the rollout of their Service Now... — read more
You heard right. Massive layoffs ahead of the Pending sale. You ain’t seen nothing yet.
Cuts are happening every month, but in August there is a possibility that they could be a bit bigger (just a rumor I heard). In what ways are you preparing if it possibly happens next month? There are many tips that experts advise on how to prepare... — read more
Has any one else heard of lay-offs in October? I've only heard a random and elusive comment from a person I wouldn't expect to be "in the know".
People are leaving for better jobs/more money and this is not a surprise. A newly appointed VP of Sales drafts a Sales Reps. Resignation Letter like complaining about HCL will undo what was done. Does anyone think Xerox cares? I don’t see them... — read more
Negotiations have started, how's the X caving into the unions? I'm sure they're caving into all the union demands.
Earlier this year, I heard that the agency staff were being scolded into working OT, and that they are given more work for the same minimum wage. Is this still occurring at the Xerox Canada branches in Toronto and Scarborough?
Can anyone confirm that a mass HCL rebadge happened recently in the Canadian offices? Also, if you are rebadged you will soon be fired and replaced by a Guatemalan.
I think there are a lot of them. Some have decided to leave Xerox after the first red flags and they have done so, while others have been seeing red flags for a while and intend to leave, but they are still there. Honestly, how long have you been... — read more
https://builtin.com/corporate-innovation/xerox-ursula-burns Regardless of opinion on Ursula, this makes for an interesting read, from UB memoir.
Just so everyone knows, Xerox won’t pursue breach of non-competes and non-solicitation agreements. I singlehandedly took customers totaling over 1 million in recurring revenue from them and they didn’t do anything but send a couple letters. So let... — read more
Not really Xerox current but the - beloved - not - CEO Ursula Burns has come on board to Teneo consulting as their new CEO. And so another golden parachute lands another high paying job leaving wreckage in her wake. Warn anybody there to get out... — read more
Does X exist only for shareholders? It kind of seems that way to me. It does not exist for customers, nor is it there for its employees, but only for top dogs and shareholders. Isn't something like that unsustainable? Xerox used to be a much... — read more
How long until this pile of **** collapses? I worked there for nearly 30 years but the last 5 were ex------t.
I just realized that by this time on weekends I'm already starting to stress and dread the coming Monday and having to deal with work again. I can't tell you what a relief it is to know that I have an extra day. This actually feels so good that it... — read more
Things have changed so much. I’ve been here for over 10 years and the difference back then compared to the present is huge. I used to enjoy my job and the people that I worked with. I am thankful to still be employed but I hate what I do every day... — read more
https://www.barrons.com/articles/hp-buy-xerox-corporate-printing-51625248510 HP should buy Xerox and dump Icahn and his whole crew. It's the only dignified ending for a company that was once great and is now gasping its dying breath.
From the recent SEC S-8 filing on using XRX stock to attempt to keep employees from jumping to a more viable company: “ Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and... — read more
XRX just filed an S-8 form with SEC for additional stock to be diverted to performance plans.

Good luck, replacement CFO works remote from another state. Only time will tell how this works. I wish everyone the best.
The biggest opportunity associated with working for Xerox is to use the brand recognition to get out, and to get paid while searching for a new job. I would never recommend taking a position at Xerox - look elsewhere. Especially given that the... — read more
I don't intend to be here much longer. It will be interesting to see from a distance what results their strategy to use cheap labor will bring. Do they think that cheap labor will fix all the problems in this company? Unfortunately, I don't think it... — read more
Here people mostly brag that they have significantly improved their financial situation after they left here. I would like that to be the case and there are probably such cases, but I am also a bit skeptical because starting from the beginning very... — read more
That's where it all starts. This company became vulnerable a long time ago and began to "wander" and sink, precisely because the management was never ready to make any brave strategic decision for the future. It seems so to me anyways. What is the... — read more
All the smartest people are long gone. Most of those left are the few smart folks waiting to retire, underachievers who have no other options but to stick around, and new people who are looking to leave within a week of working here. This place has... — read more
