    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.

    Focus on quality of coding rather than focusing on billing
