    Pros

    Wide range of opportunities in different geographic locations, as expected for a large company. Some flexibility to work remotely. Not much more to say; it used to be a much better company.

    Cons

    Not an employee friendly company. Few if any raises the past few years for majority of USA employees, including high performers. Annual shrinking benefits. No training budget. Gutted HR Dept. Little to no company pride or loyalty, including in senior management ranks. Constant drumbeat of re-orgs. create an atmosphere of permanent instability and lack of confidence in top leadership. Steady outflow of "best and brightest" due to lack of advancement and confidence in the company's direction.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting to the bone for short term appeasement to Wall Street and personal financial gain. Start investing in your people (i.e. intellectual capital) to distinguish your company from the competition.

    Pros

    Fair Pay, good co workers

    Cons

    CSC is selling off contracts, losing contracts cut over 35K in the past 3 years. Direct mgt does not care about workers, out right lies about employees they want to cut. Could care less about clients. Expect to work 60-80 hour work weeks and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Treat your employees with respect

    Pros

    Flexibility and co-worker collaboration are a plus. CSC is a prestigious company with a long heritage. Many educational resources are available.

    Cons

    Depressing work atmosphere feels like a death march. Training is only available on your own time. Salary has flatlined. Loyalty is not valued.

    Advice to Management

    The workers are dedicated to CSC customers and sacrifice to keep them satisfied. Some acknowledgement of appreciation would go a long way.
