    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp

    Pros

    Many opportunities to explore other roles in own group and other groups.

    Cons

    Too many layers of manage who took an "ivory tower" approach to dealing with contributing lower level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe the 17 layers of management have been collapsed to six, but the heart and soul of the company has been gutted.

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

    Pros

    I work well with the team that I supported for eight years. I enjoyed the environment they help me pay for my schooling and I was promoted several times.

    Cons

    When they decided to downsize due to budget cuts in 2010 I got only one day notice to get all of my belongings and leave the facility. I think that was unfair treatment after eight years of service with CSC.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I started right out of college and worked there for 23 years - great opportunity and advancement at the time. I have heard alot of bad things since the change of CEO - I was not there during that time so I can not confirm.

    Cons

    Not good with diversity - despite their respective discussions to do more, they at the time never did. (I still liked CSC when I was there.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the integrity that CSC used to be known for...

    Pros

    Solid job, enjoyed working for the Marine Corps.

    Cons

    CSC didn't understand we didn't go to corporate offices and meetings. We didn't get much information on what was going on with the company or changes. Didn't have much contact with corporate for a chance to better myself.

    Pros

    Salary is okay. Location is nice.

    Low morale. Not team players. I don't understand how some low class, ghetto people got hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the bad seeds.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, good salary, lots of autonomy.

    Cons

    New CEO stripping benefits left and right and froze pay in 2014.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improving shareholder value on the backs of employees is not a long term solution.

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

    Pros

    Very nice, down to earth people and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very slow to promote, which is now harder due to new requirements. During 5+ years there, I met few who were able to earn more than one promotion, if at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide much more support to enrich the skills and morale of employees, especially those at the mid-range of their careers.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are established in your career and looking to make an impact. Lots of change in an organization this size

    Cons

    The work-life balance is off for now. Hope to see this change as the changes stabilize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate for the work being asked. People are working 2-3 jobs in their one role and the pay is not consistent across the board. Some people are paid extremely large salaries while others doing the jobs of more than one are not.
