    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, well managed. New company structure is just the medicine that we have needed for a long time. I would recommend to a friend.

    Cons

    I left and came back recently. HR processes not so hot. It takes 4 days to be recognized as an employee by HR once on board. I couldn't even get technical help until I was there 4 days.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp (More than a year)

    Pros

    I feel there are no pros what so ever to working at CSC other than the day you start your new job at a new company. At least there is a better chance that you will have a decent work experience.

    Cons

    In order for employees to keep their job, they force them to work weekends and 14 hour workdays without pay or any sort of compensation. I was told that in order for me to keep my job I would have to work nights and weekends in addition to regular workday hours.

    Advice to Management

    You are breaking the law and opening up yourself to lawsuits. I hope that you clean up your act before all of the hard working employees you are exploiting lose their jobs. You will be held responsible one way or another.

    Benefits have been eroded in recent years to make CSC uncompetitive. Benefits are now on par or worse than a temp's.

    Pros

    There are still lots of good people around, and some interesting work.

    Cons

    Company has come to put employees dead last.

    Advice to Management

    When you don't sell anything other than expertise, you may want to try to attract and retain experts.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relatively stable employment environment, as efforts are made to redeploy employees to other contracts, if CSC contract on current job comes to an end.

    Cons

    CSC does mainly Federal Government contracts, some of which may require security clearance, including secret clearance which may be a problem with some people.

    Pros

    Benefits are good Alot of work locations Excellent on line learning center Vacation and sick leave policy are fair for today's market

    Cons

    Managers are not very competent. Too much political control over operations. Not enough diversity in leadership positions. Too many levels of leaderhsip.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know who is really doing the work. Need to institute a 360 degree review process. Need more diversity
