    Used to be great! Not anymore!

    Software Engineer Professional (Current Employee)

    ProsCSC dominates the industries in which it does business. Co-workers are skilled and a delight with which to work!

    ConsReviews are dictated to be lower than deserved. Raises low or nonexistent. Benefits going downhill fast. Reductions in force are constant and lead to constant fear and zero morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about your employees and treat us as if you value us.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst CEO we ever had.

    Lead Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsNone at this moment.

    It used to be great company, great employees, great working environment.

    ConsCurrently we have the worst CEO, to improve the balance so that he can keep getting his bonuses, he has taken away employee's health benefit, vacations, offices, giving no salary increments, firing employees when not required, etc

    This CEO is determined to bankrupt CSC. A lot many great Talent CSC employee, who were the back bone of CSC has left because he forced salary cut on them so that he can increase his bonus.

    Today, (2014) CSC has turned into a north Korea.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed a new CEO who thinks about the company rather only his bonus. A lot many stupid policies were implemented by new CEO, all should be scrapped.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place to work, recent management changes and cost cuts hurting employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked for CSC for over 10 years, and overall it was a great place to work. However, in more recent times the company restructuring and cost cutting results in employees taking it on the chin in areas like compensation, job roles and benefits.

    ConsLow morale due to reduction in force. Poor raises and employee career development

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat loyal and hard working employees as more than just a number, we are your product.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    One dimensional. Self managing with little chance of advancement.

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsMay have opportunities to work from home. That's about it.

    ConsLittle or no team concept. Be prepared to do things on your own and to look out for yourself because management or leadership is sorely lacking. Work-life balance non-existing. Like a colleague of mine used to say......They suck the life out of you"

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrue leadership is lacking from mid-level on down managers. Have had many supervisors....no leaders.

    Contract world

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat pay at first and hopefully you do not renew contract yearly

    ConsContract renewals come with no warning.literally can be given a weeks termination notice if contract rebid is not succesfull. If you lose contract and they want to keep you the new companies average a 20% paycut

    Advice to Senior Managementbe honest and keep employees informed and up to date. Understand your worries of people jumping ship quickly but they have families too

    Can do better

    Team Leader (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsWork From Home afforded, a good benefits plan. Educational resources are available. Corporate discounts are good. Good standing among the general public.

    ConsEasy to get lost, there are 96K employees. Promotions are arbitrary, absolutely no raises, inflation is taboo. No moving allowances. Zero encouragement for personal development.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhat exactly is the internal job application site for? If you apply for one 10 days later without reason they will reject lateral movement. There is no scope for improvement unless i know influencers within the company. Its sad. Employee attrition will hit you if you continue to mistreat employees.
