    Former Employee - Applications Development Manager in Chantilly, VA
    Former Employee - Applications Development Manager in Chantilly, VA

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility with working remotely. Competitive salary and benefits - the last year I was there, the benefits increased greatly, but that seemed to be the norm with big companies that year (2013). Challenging work, great people. I had an 18-year run, and would do it again if the opportunity presented itself.

    Cons

    It seems they are taking years to go through their "transformation initiative" into "layers of 8". I fell victim to one of the weekly layoffs last year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication from the top down.
