    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I work well with the team that I supported for eight years. I enjoyed the environment they help me pay for my schooling and I was promoted several times.

    Cons

    When they decided to downsize due to budget cuts in 2010 I got only one day notice to get all of my belongings and leave the facility. I think that was unfair treatment after eight years of service with CSC.

    Pros

    They offer 5 days of family emergency leave if traveling 400 miles or more. This was a nice benefit when my grandmother passed away.

    Cons

    The company is really cheap. Two weeks after I started, they gave paid holiday for Christmas Eve, unless you had already entered vacation for that day. How would that make you feel, that many people get a paid day off, but you had to use earned vacation?

    Also I am on my third year with no raises. At my previous job, I received 3% every year plus a bonus one-time 6%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so cheap. At least be fair with policies.

    Pros

    Great project management experience working for the new business group. Some of the best project management practices I have seen in a company.

    Great training opportunities

    Cons

    They do not compensate their employees enough. This is probably due to competition form shared services being off shore and cross the county where there are different costs of living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees better. I was once told by a senor manager the only way to get a good raise in CSC is to leave and come back.

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

    Pros

    My experience with CSC was that it generally has flexible hours, and mostly good, hard working people. The work is challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    Offshoring, Greed, and other somewhat strange upper management initiatives have steadily eroded morale around the company. Vacation accrual suspension, mandated time-off. Seems like more and more work for fewer and fewer people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect, not like commodities.
