    Pros

    CSC is huge. There's lots of opportunity to move both vertically and horizontally. In my particular division of the company the management is very hands-off and lets their people deal with customers directly. They support us and help us with sensitive issues or with paperwork. The autonomy is extremely helpful for those of us that are skilled professionals and don't need a middle-manager breathing down our necks.

    Cons

    CSC is huge. You will need to actively pursue the information you need. If you are the type that wants very clear direction and to be told exactly what needs to be done then you may get frustrated. I should note that this only applies to my particular division, I don't know what the rest of CSC is like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A Buddy-System would be extremely appreciated. Especially for government contractors. I've seen people get lost in the mire of training and paperwork that gets tossed at them when they first start and it can be overwhelming.

    Benefits have been eroded in recent years to make CSC uncompetitive. Benefits are now on par or worse than a temp's.
