    Department of Labor / VETS Service Desk Rep

    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative/Service Desk Representative in Chantilly, VA

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I met some nice co-workers who also quit.

    Cons

    Very high turnover. To get promoted you need to kiss a lot of behind. There seems to be a lot of preferential treatment and preference towards one race. Reps are overworked and the pay is not enough. If you screw up you get to hear it from everyone, but if you do a great job no one says anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees fairly and chose your management based on skills, qualifications and experience, not skin color.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great flexibility with working remotely. Competitive salary and benefits - the last year I was there, the benefits increased greatly, but that seemed to be the norm with big companies that year (2013). Challenging work, great people. I had an 18-year run, and would do it again if the opportunity presented itself.

    Cons

    It seems they are taking years to go through their "transformation initiative" into "layers of 8". I fell victim to one of the weekly layoffs last year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication from the top down.

    EOC contract in Chantilly VA and Forth Worth TX

    Current Employee - Systems Administrator in Chantilly, VA
    Current Employee - Systems Administrator in Chantilly, VA

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good element that I can really think of at this moment is the CSC e-learning website

    Cons

    I was a System Administrator with CSC with a high security clearance and got paid like a Tier-1 Helpdesk person. I was promised a raise and when I accepted the new position the raise never followed. The management has a very high turnover and so does the other staff. Everybody working on the FBI EOC contract is unhappy and wants to leave. CSC in general is not a beneficial company to work for. The benefits through Aetna are extremely bad and keeps getting worse every year. The HR personnel is indifferent and lazy. It is not uncommon to create a case and not hear back. In general I sensed that everybody i spoke to expressed that they were underpaid, if they compared to other government contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    revise lower layers of management ASAP and seriously review the HR personnel

    Pros

    Good work environment, offers corporate training, allows some work flexibility

    Cons

    The health benefits are getting worse and worse each year. Good thing that they are cutting overhead costs but not the employees, but I still think that insurance cost for the employees are way too high

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities within the company to allow career growth.

    Pros

    CSC used to be a great place to work. The is a lot of telecommuting work available.

    Cons

    CSC has been too busy cutting costs deeply where ever they can. Lot of the top talent has left or is leaving the company. They still going through restructuring and layoffs. I would wait a year (until mid 2014) to let the dust settle before thinking about joining.
