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

    Pros

    Wide range of opportunities in different geographic locations, as expected for a large company. Some flexibility to work remotely. Not much more to say; it used to be a much better company.

    Cons

    Not an employee friendly company. Few if any raises the past few years for majority of USA employees, including high performers. Annual shrinking benefits. No training budget. Gutted HR Dept. Little to no company pride or loyalty, including in senior management ranks. Constant drumbeat of re-orgs. create an atmosphere of permanent instability and lack of confidence in top leadership. Steady outflow of "best and brightest" due to lack of advancement and confidence in the company's direction.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting to the bone for short term appeasement to Wall Street and personal financial gain. Start investing in your people (i.e. intellectual capital) to distinguish your company from the competition.
