    Former Employee - Supervisor in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My peers and subordinates made it a great work environment.
    The benefits and tuition reimbursement were great! The sick and vacation time are awesome!

    Cons

    The compensation is not good for all of the work load. The leads and QA earn more than Supervisors and Managers due to the overtime and bonuses. The work life balance is non existent (too much work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop distributing the workload unfairly! If one or two employees are lazy or irresponsible don't givetheir workload to the hardworking Supervisors, it is demoralizing and demotivating.

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, very good benefits, managers do not micro-manage

    Cons

    Little direction from managers, little to none advancement opportunities at current location, takes too long to get started on an account

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expedite the clearance process to get started on an account, visit the office where the employees work and create advancement opportunities

    Pros

    A big company but each division felt and acted like a small company. There was always opportunity to try out new things.

    Cons

    A big company that had a lot of trappings of a big company. When I left in 2013, the division I was in was in flux.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people clear direction of where the company is heading.
