Struggling company without employee focus
Learning and Development Specialist (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – April 26, 2016
Xerox is known as a struggling company, and this is likely because the focus of the company is acquiring contracts, attempting to maximize profits, and grind away at employees with little focus on good management. Managers aren't well-trained and not incentivized to act as coaches. No advancement opportunities arise because most SBUs will combine job responsibilities for new openings with those of other managers. The work may be on the easy side, but it's usually underrated by managers (a good deal of training is still required) and no efforts are made to use management techniques to motivate or inspire employees. Compensation is usually on the high side, but benefits aren't great. Overtime arises on short notice. This job is best seen as a backup job for introverts who enjoy sitting in front of a computer and listening to music or audiobooks. Not a great place to start a career.
Lack of management support, no work/life balance, no advancement opportunities
