    Flexibility to work from home

    Cons

    Losing customers due to poor management
    Lots of people leaving the company
    Benefits have been cut to the bone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop reducing benefits, lead by example (if employees don't get a bonus, then neither should you), get a new CEO and CFO that know how this business is supposed to run

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

    Pros

    Historically, a great culture, sales teams, smart, customer oriented employees with honest, ethical and transparent leadership. At the lower levels of the organization, these (somewhat) still exist.

    Cons

    The list is endless....endless work hours, salary freezes and reductions, no bonuses (except for executive management), reduced benefits (PTO, healthcare, etc.). The (new) leadership has gone through extensive turnover, churn and lacks transparency, business ethics, concern for the individual and "hangs on" for their payout when their tenure will (likely) end. The so-called transformation is failing, as indicated by the significant reduction in headcount, revenue and customers. As the stock price increases so does the addition of inexperienced leaders, cronyism and lack of transparency. The few bright young stars that remain, or join, are overworked, underpaid and all with the idle promise of a future, but moreso the constant fear of being terminated. I'm confident those who read this can/will, or at least should embellish this, as the unethical behavior and misalignment of the leadership team cannot continue, or the company will not sustain...at least independently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company, or take out the real culprits (without a parachute). You don't have to look far, Mike,
