    Recently, management has been having a great deal of trouble finding a clear course for the company and are lacking consultants in positions of decision maker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stop worrying about counting beans and start realizing that building a business is done by doing the right thing for a customer.

    Pros

    CSC offers a variety of opportunities if you're willing to put in the effort to prepare for and pursue them.

    Cons

    Assessments of client engagements that don't fall in line with what sales has described are common, but management doesn't want to hear about potential problems, even if it's with the intent to prevent bigger problems.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp

    Pros

    The CSC employees I work with are bright and motivated, and really seem to care about doing a good job.

    Cons

    The Etes app (online app to enter timesheets) needs some work.
    At my level I saw no positive impact of their vertical and horizontal restructuring undertaken last year. In fact I never did find out who the person is that is supposed to help find another project to work on when my current one ends.
