    HP isn't helping

    Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsTeam members and peers will go the extra mile for you and take pride in the quality of thier work.

    ConsExecutive leadership, especially now under Mark Hurd and HP are singularly focused on shareholder value, not stakeholder value, regardless of the lipservice paid to caring about employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees, or they will leave when times get better. Forcing pay cuts, unequally on North American employees but not other country employees due to local laws and telling us it will save jobs, and then resuming work force reductions a couple months later destroyed any credibility. Equally, telling employees in April that there would be a forced shutdown the last two weeks of the year, and that we had to save 8 days of vacation, then performing work force reductions a couple months later and not paying of unused vacation is just plain unethical.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Business Consultant (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsNot a whole lot of good things to say, that is why i'm out here reading reviews to get a new job

    Consbad managers who will keep their foot on your head to stay a float as the work force reductions happen.

    Advice to Senior Managementno real advice for them. I'm not a huge fan of the management so I guess I would tell them to listen to open their eyes

    It is a clique

    Information Architect (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsThey do have some good opportunities to learning new technologies and skills. Requesting days off were very easily accommodated. Benefits were pretty standard.

    ConsVery poor management and supervision. It reminds me of the cliques that were in high school. If you are not in the clique then you are outside. Personally witnessed several cases of favoritism and others claiming credit for work they did not perform. Supervision does not listen well to their employees in several cases I have witnessed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement and superivision needs to take a strong look at how they conduct themselves. They should not show favoritism and they should listen to their employees. They need to remove the cliques that are rampant.

    Every Day Sucks

    IT Analyst (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsOffice was close to my house.

    ConsRules, more rules, and even more rules. Backstabbing employees jockeying for position. Doesn't feel like a real job, more like a "Lord of the Flies" remake. EDS might be good for certain political types who want to slowly climb the ladder in a company with a very strong culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think they know what they are doing, I just don't agree with it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    EDS Management needs to wake up and start listening to their employees

    Service Center Analyst (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsThe best reasons to work at EDS is to earn a somewhat decent paycheck, have the ability to work either a condensed shift, flextime, or telecommute, and receive medical benefits. EDS also provides free online courses to take, but you have to do these at work. At one time, EDS was a great company to work for, but now, it's just a place to work while you look for a better job. There are some great people that still work at EDS, but are stuck in their job because of the current job market. There really isn't too many good reasons to work at EDS except for earning a paycheck. Oh, and you get vacation. Other than that, EDS basically sucks.

    ConsThe lousy management! My manager was located in Michigan while I was in Plano, TX. I never met him and only spoke to him maybe two to three times a year and that was to conduct my performance review. Senior management was also out of tune with their employees. They do not associate with their employees and there is little to no communication from them. They have no idea how bad morale is there and probably do not care. It's very difficult to get a raise, there are no bonuses, and there is no recognition for performance. The employees are overworked and understaffed and this causes a conflict when trying to take vacation. No time for lunch, unless you are a manager, then you can take all the time that you want. I had not been able to take a lunch for the last 4 years due to lack of coverage, but management didn't care.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWAKE UP and talk to your employees and listen to them! Learn how to lead by example and then your employees will start to respect you. Tell them what a great job they are doing instead of focusing only on their mistakes.

    Save your self a lot of trouble, do not work for the Morally Bankrupt

    Customer Technical Support Representative (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsCan not think of any reason to work for them. Benefits package and eduation plans are some what helpful.

    ConsConstant lies and incompetence, they monitor everything employees do and pry into your private life. Constant humiliation and more lies. Schedule overtime and then cancel it. Never tell you the truth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf there really is a God who rules the Universe , he is duty bound to punish you.

    EDS -- Don't go there!

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsBefore the HP transaction the Benefits program was fair. The company does sponsor 60 hours of training per year but you normally have to do this on your own time.

    ConsThe chief goal was always to cut cost. Outsourcing was a way of life and if it could be done at a lower cost location then the mine set of management was to relocation. It is too large and the right hand never knows what the left hand is doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut management level employees and not worker bees. The customers need to have the work done.

    If you want a miserable existence, work at EDS.

    Project Manager & Team Leader (Former Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsI was paid nicely. However, that was more of a product of the company that was purchased by EDS than a result of working for EDS. We had a middle manager tell an entire group newly acquired employees that we were all overpaid. The result was very few raises and raises of very small percentages.

    ConsI'm not sure where to start. The work was overwhelming. The reward for doing your job well was more work with the same pay. As a manager I was asked to tell some people that there their jobs were being offshored and by the way, you need to train your replacements. Oh, and finding you a new job within the company is your job, not mine. Even though your performance is satisfactory or above satisfactory. I had to tell anther group that their salaries were being cut because they were being paid above the market average. Some of these people were the same people who lost their jobs to off-shoring. I was miserable there. Their project management efforts were a joke. You don't do something simply to get some bogus certification. You do it because it makes sense and add value you to the day-to-day operations and your client(s). Management never got that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people in the trenches. They know what they are talking about and they are the ones that, in the end, make you money. If they aren't happy, you will lose them. You have, already, lost the most talented people. In the end, all you're left with are the average and the muck, for the most part. The rare gems that remain are there only because their personal situations prevent them from leaving.
