    Behind the CSC Curtain

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp

    Pros

    The employees are experienced, talented and often underappreciated. Many move on to greener pastures with other companies.

    Cons

    Employees are just a number affecting the bottom line. Constant revolving door of management. Due to the antiquated forced distribution raise system, most employees do not receive a promotional increase yet leadership continues to collect millions off the backs of those who actually perform the work. Many fear when the next layoff is coming - they will be replaced by younger, lower salaried hires. Also, the Company tends to oversell and under deliver its offerings due to lack of resource pool. Rumors of buyout continue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Analogy: You can only cut your grocery bill so much before you either starve, become malnourished or fade away to nothing.

    Pros

    Great leadership and investment in the people.

    Cons

    BCG did a workforce analysis to reduce the size of the firm but didn’t take time to understand leadership dynamics or variance in remaining leadership and manager capability. The result was a lean organization with less leadership and reduced focus on development or employee engagement. You can predict what happened next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CSC was a great firm with caring leaders and exceptional employee development. Build the firm leadership competency and focus on employee development.

    Pros

    Great team members who are dedicated to excelling at their jobs and making for a fun challenging work environment. At least this was my experience most of the time. With consulting this is likely to change often. Co-workers are generally very helpful and follow a team mentality to accomplishing goals.

    Cons

    The company is constantly re-organizing to the point it's become a joke. At least that's the perception at the lower levels. Employees don't even know their titles or standing within the company. After several years I became disenfranchised with the larger organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reviewers should always be on the same project, contract, or site as the employee they are reviewing. It's not helpful to be rated and reviewed by someone who has only met you once or twice.

    Pros

    The people are very nice, they make you want to stay. The pay is not bad and they do hire the contractors. If you dont get layed off you can work here for years. Some people have been here for over 15 years. Because they will move you around to save your job.

    Cons

    It is a computer company that has the worst computers, networking etc. It makes it difficult to get my work done daily. It is know out loud that you will get no raise as long as you work here. It is said that even if you get a promotion you have to work at the same pay rate. When I first got here there was no process you learn as you go. The IT departments dont talk to each other and without a process to stand on it was very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have thier hands tied they have to follow rules that dont make any sence business wise. And there is no flow chart that I am aware of so I don't even know who is my bosses boss. I don't think anyone knows who runs this place outside of this building.
