    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A responsible company with a positive attitude to human capital that pays salaries at the going rate. Stock value has been increasing under current management. The company attempts to keep talented employees by moving to new contracts.

    Cons

    Medical benefits have a high deductible Only 10 days of vacation, some of which must be used in late December. Only a few holidays and they do not coincide with the holidays of Federal workers whom we work with.

    Advice to Management

    Add more vacation time, eliminate medical deductibles.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very ethical company doing fascinating work (if you're into that kind of thing). Good benefits package, opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Massive bureaucracy, easy to get lost in the shuffle. Outside-the-box thinking is suppressed in many cases. Corporate HQ in Virginia is a traffic blob.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees understand where their work is going and why it is important. That's the best thing for morale, as opposed to wondering what a lot of it is for.

    Pros

    Very good challenging environment to work in, lots of possibilities to broaden your skills and lots of freedom to manage your work.

    Cons

    Only one small downside of working at CSC was sometimes the lack of interest in the person behind the employee.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management would be to make sure that more time will be reserved for people managers so they have the possibility to really get to know their staff.
