great culture

Fellow (Former Employee)
Plano, TX

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

ProsEDS had one of the best cultures during my tenture. There was always lots of opportunity for career growth and learning.

ConsEDS started to lose it way - starting with Dick Brown - as it brought in too many outsiders to lead the company. They lacked vision and leadership in an industry that Ross Perot invented.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to lead, and reinvent the business/industry!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very fulfilling, great teamwork, recognition, development, customer service, education, growth, benefits, salary/wage.

Infrastructure Specialist (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Electronic Data Systems

ProsAccess to technical resources & references. Great teamwork, fellowship & support for each other. Great professional development. Great training opportunities. Great benefits - medical, dental, vision, 401K, stock plan, pension plan. Great growth opportunities. Great rewards - bonuses, raises, promotions, recognition, dinners, awards, prizes & other perks. Great review process. Great integrity, values, diversity & employee value & respect. Exclusive onsite support at a corporate account is a great environment. Don't need a degree to work there (opportunity for good, smart people to excel).

ConsPeople working on salary remotely from home may work 80 hours/week and the work schedule may be devastating to whatever time is left: Meetings all day (9-6), every couple of hours, prepare for server changes all evening (7-9pm), work all night making server changes or waiting in queues for your turn and complete paperwork (9pm-7am), plus emergency on-call rotation, no time to take training or train yourself. The few hours you have left are to grab a bite, catch a z, run to store & try to see your wife & kids. I wouldn't recommend remote support from home unless it's paid hourly.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuild your company around your employees and train, train, train. Don't lay people off.
