    Cons

    One project I worked on ECSS got to unwieldy; that project was managed poorly and planned poorly to get the lowest bid; failed miserably

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not cut corners to get the lowest bid. ECSS should be a learning experience.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At my particular site, the management is excellent, the employees are great, the health benefits meet the needs, the education benefits are outstanding, pay is excellent, work life balance is second to none

    Cons

    New employee rating system mandates at least one person in each section be selected as a needs improvement. But every where I have worked has had that one guy who should probably be looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Project Management Intern

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture. I found deadlines were always met, but not because they grinded employees to death, but rather because the management team is highly efficient and transparent about what needs to be done

    Cons

    It is a large company so obviously it is tough to get quality face time with management, and in terms of perks there really were not a whole lot of awesome ones I was not expecting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe just make it a point to get to know members of your teams a bit more, it might help improve the overall enthusiasm levels.
