Overtime is always expected

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Electronic Data Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLearning library available to expand your skills ...if you ever had any free time.

Advice to Senior ManagementHigher project managers that present resource leveled plans and stop cutting 40% from the timeline but still expecting 110% of the workload to be completed. What happened to work life balance?

Decent name on your resume, but horrible to work for

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Electronic Data Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsEDS sounds good on your resume. Benefits are decent but not exceptional. Range of work possible and the locations you could work are large/

ConsPay is poor. Many roles are hourly. Payroll make so many errors (like being paid $52 for 2 weeks) that you wonder if the company is trying to balance its books by not paying workers on time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
