    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp

    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 5 years)

    Pros

    My peers and subordinates made it a great work environment.
    The benefits and tuition reimbursement were great! The sick and vacation time are awesome!

    Cons

    The compensation is not good for all of the work load. The leads and QA earn more than Supervisors and Managers due to the overtime and bonuses. The work life balance is non existent (too much work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop distributing the workload unfairly! If one or two employees are lazy or irresponsible don't givetheir workload to the hardworking Supervisors, it is demoralizing and demotivating.

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, very good benefits, managers do not micro-manage

    Cons

    Little direction from managers, little to none advancement opportunities at current location, takes too long to get started on an account

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expedite the clearance process to get started on an account, visit the office where the employees work and create advancement opportunities
