    Pros

    Cons

    Mgmt lies, benefits worst in the industry, very disorganized, and give employees no options but to leave

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only been w this company for a month (they won a govt contract) and they are unbelievably bad. First they lost a bunch of my coworkers' intake forms that had their ss# on them, then lied when asked what happened. They didn't send some people's paychecks on time and others were wrong (and no direct deposit in over a month), benefits a total ripoff ($3,000 deductible!), and we had to drive to their hq and were forced to sit through 3 agonizing, boring and self-promoting hours of what they call 'orientation'. They also didn't answer any meaningful questions (about paychecks and benefits, for one) - they just sat up there and bragged. So unnecessary and wasteful.
    They might have won the contract, but they lost the staff's faith and trust. Lots of good people leaving when all they hoped for was respect and honesty.

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Been here a few years and other than a steady paycheck, I haven't seen many pros, if any.

    Cons

    Management is a joke, lack of vision and communication.
    No training and horrible procedural documentation.
    Low wages for the expert level work that's expected.
    People will stab you in the back to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about more than your own paycheck.

    I worked at Unisys full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, cooperation within teams, flexible work situations (at least outside of the home office),

    Cons

    Top management is dreadful, constant change mostly to appear to be doing something, raises have been mostly non-existent in recent years as management's focus has been on cutting costs rather than increasing revenue,

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great commercial portfolio; Strong technical staff working on programs.

    Cons

    Top heavy Federal leadership who are more concerned with saving their own job than what is best for the company and the direct billable staff. Biggest downfall is the inability to win new business and sustain current business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct an assessment of the overhead structure & which posiitons are value added. Focus on customer facing services rather than internal facing functions ie: Business operations, resoure management, multiple layers of VPs, portfolio sales

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work/Life balance and benefits. Responsive IT help desk and support. Peers at your level are supportive.

    Cons

    Dinosaur sales staff has no confidence in new products and solutions being developed. It is a challenge to internally sell anything. Marketing needs an over haul starting at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together, there is a reason why revenues have steadily fallen for a decade. Be supportive and factor in what employees suggest in the field.

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are the best thing about working at Unisys. Quite a few people have left the company and then come back to Unisys. Work schedules are flexible.

    Cons

    Business has been declining over the last approximately 6 years, as it has with many government contractors. However, since Unisys federal business represents @ 15% of the company's business. Therefore, it is often difficult to convince the corporate structure that certain procedures and policies must be implemented in order to comply with legal requirements of government contract.
    Unisys is a difficult place at which to get a promotion. Often they have their employees perform jobs at least one layer above their titles, but no increase in salary is forthcoming.
    The indirect staff has not had raises for 4 years now. In order to try to cut costs, quite a few people have been laid off resulting in an increase to the workload of remaining staff.
