    Great Experience! Learned a lot.

    Computer Programmer Intern (Former Employee) Alexandria, VA

    Pros-Weekly seminars on career advancement and current technologies for interns
    -Great atmosphere
    -Solid Salary for an internship
    -Co-workers and upper management were very helpful with any questions
    -Got my own office

    Cons-Did not get to work with any other interns since I was with a smaller division
    -Felt a little overwhelmed at the end of my internship due to some pressure of finishing an updated version 2 of my project.

    A great place to build a career

    Applications Development Manager (Former Employee) Chantilly, VA

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsIt 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 Senior ManagementImprove communication from the top down.

    Great place to work for

    Applications Support (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsGreat company esp for people who have IT experience and are going to school. Great benefits esp tuition re imbursement. Probably one of the best in this area (DMV) and I have worked for companies like ManTech, CACI, Serco and out of all of them, CSC is the best.

    ConsI don't know of many cons other then with contracts, they might end however I have came accross people who have been working for CSC for 20 plus years so I think if yours end, you probably can find another one within the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont loose good employees, why hire new when you can move the ones you already have. So if a project ends, move the good ones to a new one.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros-CSC takes care of their people (if your contract ends, they work hard to keep you employed)
    -Very competitive pay
    -Awesome benefits (vacation, tuition assistance, etc)
    -Very clear path forward as a company. Encourages collaboration across employees.
    -Really couldn't be happier with a company

    ConsHonestly nothing that is not just a normal part of life, and just goes with the fact of work in general.
