    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Comparable salary. Medical benefits were decent. I worked with a great team of people. We were always there for each other and came together when a job needed to get done.

    Cons

    Worked many overtime hours without overtime pay. The employee evaluation process was a joke! A person who you didn't work for, yet alone even know, wrote and approved your evaluation. The rating scale was absolutely ridiculous as well. I don't believe in inflated evaluations, but so many people who worked their tails off every day did not get the credit they so deserved. Pay raises were a joke as well. Now with the new evaluation system, pay raises are non existent to the average joe employee who needs them most. The new leave policy is absolutely ridiculous as well. Employees are no longer able to carry leave over from year to year. You have to use it during the year you accrued it. Vacation time is being forced on employees whether they want to take it or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I left CSC because of personal reasons but know many people who still work there. The evaluation, vacation, and overtime policies really need to be looked at. Listen to your employees and get their input! Employee Evaluations should be done by a manager that knows the employee and what they do. They should not be done by a manager in a completely different sector that has no idea what the employees sector even does.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and work schedule.

    CEO a traitor. Cuts American jobs only to replace them by low cost center jobs in India while he makes $22 million in a year for doing so.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At my particular site, the management is excellent, the employees are great, the health benefits meet the needs, the education benefits are outstanding, pay is excellent, work life balance is second to none

    Cons

    New employee rating system mandates at least one person in each section be selected as a needs improvement. But every where I have worked has had that one guy who should probably be looking for another job.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, I had some great coworkers, a flexible schedule, and decent pay. I was able to get a large variety of projects and work for multiple teams.

    Cons

    Management didn't seem excited about the future, not a lot of upward mobility, seemed very stagnant. People did not seem thrilled to be where they were.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more questions/suggestions of lower-level employees, need more energy overall.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great culture. I found deadlines were always met, but not because they grinded employees to death, but rather because the management team is highly efficient and transparent about what needs to be done

    Cons

    It is a large company so obviously it is tough to get quality face time with management, and in terms of perks there really were not a whole lot of awesome ones I was not expecting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe just make it a point to get to know members of your teams a bit more, it might help improve the overall enthusiasm levels.

    Pros

    Regular paychecks, work-life balance is very good, great co-workers. Exciting and interesting being on base and away from the outside community.

    Cons

    The contract eventually goes up for bid and or ends. Uncertainty is a fact, the employees become a little unnerved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management style is working fine for a global company.

    Pros

    Good group of co workers

    Cons

    CSC only thinks of the bottom line and how to get their executives the bonus's they need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the whole relocation project. You are going to loose so much talent just so you can can put all your eggs in one basket? Your better keeping your assets spread out.
