    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, opportunities to learn new tools, tuition reimbursement, telecommuting

    Cons

    Layoffs have led to understaffed teams, overworked people, stressful situations, and loss of job satisfaction. Add to that the decreasing benefits coverage, increased cost of benefits, mandatory vacation policies, and merit program where they cannot evaluate you based on your true performance, poor merit raises (if any) that don't even cover the cost of living increases.. The recent strategies and policies make employees feel unappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent loss of job satisfaction is resulting in poorer employee job satisfaction, therefore also affecting performance, absenteeism, and negative attitudes are contagious. Please invest in appropriate resources for teams to get work done. Invest in your employees and give incentives and rewards.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time

    Pros

    Large company with lots of projects. Generally forward-leaning culture with a few innovative programs like an academic papers competition and conference opportunities. Many retired military in the ranks and the overall culture reflects this. If you are fortunate enough to work for one of good character you, will go far and advance your career. Enterprising behavior is rewarded but being in the right place at right time plays a role, as well as good networking skills.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to transfer between projects outside the higher-level divisions. CSC was formed through the buyouts of smaller companies and these tend to remain somewhat isolated fiefdoms. It's not a startup -- advancement is gradual, like in the Federal Government. Most of CSC is in fact an extension of the Federal Government -- no equity involved, a relatively low-risk proposition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities and great companies to work with. Variety of types of work, technologies, industries.

    Cons

    Cost cutting has gone on for too long and every day we seem to lose more long term colleagues. New mangement staff is brutal. This may be what the company needs to do to survive, but being here for it is not pleasant. Hard to be engaged when you are constantly in fear and watching colleagues be slayed unfeelingly.
