    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    worked with great people and on our account it felt like a family. We all worked together as a team to accomplish what we needed to for the client.

    Cons

    Put in a ton of hours and was on call 7x24. I preferred it more when HP didn't own the company and we were independent. With HP I felt like more of a number than a person.
