    Pros

    There are some smart hard working people but many are leaving.

    Cons

    Compensation has been held flat for 3 years, empty promises made yearly about how it will get better. Each year benefits for North American employees erode. Continual churn in leadership leads to continually changing priorities and direction and the feeling nothing gets accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    You told us that retaining talent was a priority. You decision to balance the books on the backs of your employees yet again shows it was another empty platitude. As you concentrate on grooming the books in order to sell the company you may find there's not much of a company left to sell.

    Pros

    Good salary and good job. Completed background checks and Secret Clearance. Good benefits, but earning Vacation time was too slow, only 2 weeks per year.

    Cons

    CSC manager was inflexible about commute issues vs non-site manager was understanding. Benefits were too little. My benefits were those of a "new hire", but I was recruited as Senior Techinical Staff. Also there was complete LACK of communication about the future. After I arrived many of the CSC staff left due to the expectation that CSC would not/could not get the contract renewal.

    Advice to Management

    Senior personnel should be treated with more respect, flexibility, and better benefits in an attempt to retain. I left a position where I had been over 4 years, but left CSC after only 7 months due to these issues. After leaving CSC, I've now been with another company 3 1/2 years.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Long, long hours demanded
    No raises for U.S. employees over last 3 - 5 yrs; no bonuses for successful projects
    Constant reorganization
    Constant threat of layoffs
    Old equipment and software
    Poorly trained employees; no career path
    Constantly decreasing employee benefits
    Company is management heavy

    Advice to Management

    No advice.....current senior management does not care about the people working for the company. They arbitrarily set project dates that are impossible to meet with undertrained staff. Project teams are spread across the globe. This concept doesn't work, but they hire cheap labor in India and Asian countries as trainee programmers producing poor quality of work and a lot of re-work. CSC only cares about cheap; quality is a word they don't comprehend.

    Pros

    Can offer a wide range of opportunities, many of which can be performed remotely. Company has global reach. Current management has completed many streamlining activities to cut to costs which has resulted in a substantial increase in stock price over the past the few years.

    Cons

    Employee engagement is low and is not seen as a high corporate priority. The industry is very competitive and controlling labor costs is a major factor to meet financial goals. Employee morale is low.

    Advice to Management

    Take steps to improve employee morale. Most employees have a negative opinion of the company, IMO. I would not want to lead a company whose employees have this view. There were times when I was embarrassed to say I worked for CSC.
