    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train people in the area they prefer and are familiar with. Do not let them to join a project with skills they have no knowledge about.

  2. Horrible company to work for, riddled with clueless middle management. Only accept a job here if you are still looking.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility with your schedule - because nobody is paying attention to what you really do. You have the freedom to set your own schedule nearly, by the time your manager knows your name, you'll get a new manager. You don't have to worry about calculating your pay raises, because there aren't any, even if you get excellent appraisals as i did each year I worked there.

    Cons

    After several years of working for the company my "Area Manager" contacts me and wants to know why I have not yet went to the site I had been supporting for years and follows it up with "Have you done your new employee training?" I told him several times over the next year that I had been an employee for several years, only to repeat myself to him each month. This happened with several "managers" over the years. Unbelievable. Seriously zero idea of WHO I am or WHAT I do, but they are supposed to manage me? All to be repeated by the next manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to keep your resume polished up - you'll be looking for a new job soon. CSC has went downhill since 2009 - I've been with them for 12+ years and seen the decline of quality of service - so much so that I was embarrassed to call myself a CSC employee for the last few years I worked for them. CSC will be sold and I hope it gets better for the people still with them.

    Pros

    Salary but benefits at a cost

    Cons

    When being laid off they delete whatever sick leave you had. Very tight on any raises after you get hired on. If any at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on your management crew. They say they will do things that never happen

    Pros

    Global compny, strong on internals systems and processes. Smart knowledgeable colleagues.

    Cons

    The new management that took over the operations a couple of years back, does not fully understand the industry and the capability of the employees and sometimes blindly do what the CEO tells them to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new management thinks all the old timers in CSC are non performers. This is unfortunate

    Current Employee - Project Manager

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In my group there is a lot of flexibility on work hours and ability to work remotely. I am not pressured to work 9-5 in the office. If I want to work 7-3, I could. I am able to work remotely when needed and there if a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    The salaries are far below the industry/state averages.
    It is a HIGHLY matrixed organization.
    Severe lack of raises, bonuses, or employee recognition
    The company executives only care about one things...themselves
    Constant change and always wondering if you are next on the RIF list
    The front door of the Falls Church office is a revolving door. There is always a constant "changing of the guards" which makes it very difficult to have any type of long term structure. Every change of management brings change in ideals which means a change in how the business operates.
    There is NO standardization!
    There is a lack of innovation and technology available to employees. We use homegrown antiquated applications and "left over" equipment for employees.
    It is a constant battle to get work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You always say that your employees are your most valuable asset. For once, try practicing what you preach. Invest in your employees. Morale in the company stinks yet you do nothing the change it. A happy employee is a productive employee.

    Pros

    Massive government installed base and ready for positive transformation.

    Cons

    Ex government employees pervasive means few have commercial achievements so politic-driven behaviors prevail over sensible work ethic. Toxic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put former government workers in emissary roles...not leadership.
