    Pros

    Decent pay. Used to be able to work from home with a few days in the office.

    Cons

    Health benefits are expensive. Moved from remote and local office work to only a few POD offices around the U.S. that required employees to move to those locations to keep their jobs. Management changed so frequently that it was difficult to know who you reported to or what your title was. Morale is non-existent with the infrastructure changes. No raises. Vacations required to be used during holidays or shut downs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your product. It is important to remember this and treat them accordingly. Teach management to ask questions and listen to their employees. You have a lot of intelligence to pull from. Use it wisely. Telling your employees that you appreciate their hard work costs you nothing and in the days of no raises and dictated vacation can go a long way.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Initial compensation was fair, excellent coworkers, lower level management works hard to keep you employed (transferring you to a new position if current one ends).

    Cons

    Trying to maximize profit by squeezing it out of workers. Forced unpaid overtime, no yearly pay raises, forced vacation, eliminating the ability to work from home and forcing workers into three "centers of excellence" spread across the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees.
