    Pros

    Lots of opportunities and great companies to work with. Variety of types of work, technologies, industries.

    Cons

    Cost cutting has gone on for too long and every day we seem to lose more long term colleagues. New mangement staff is brutal. This may be what the company needs to do to survive, but being here for it is not pleasant. Hard to be engaged when you are constantly in fear and watching colleagues be slayed unfeelingly.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very nice, down to earth people and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very slow to promote, which is now harder due to new requirements. During 5+ years there, I met few who were able to earn more than one promotion, if at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide much more support to enrich the skills and morale of employees, especially those at the mid-range of their careers.

    Pros

    Nice large company with a variety of benefits. Finally hired me after 2 years of trying.

    Cons

    Significant disorder and unreasonable requirements that often conflict with client's needs. Also the restructuring internally has created a poor level of support for employees at on-site client locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting corners and benefits because you are greedy.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At my particular site, the management is excellent, the employees are great, the health benefits meet the needs, the education benefits are outstanding, pay is excellent, work life balance is second to none

    Cons

    New employee rating system mandates at least one person in each section be selected as a needs improvement. But every where I have worked has had that one guy who should probably be looking for another job.

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

    Pros

    Did have some excellent resources, IF you knew where to look. Manager was sympathetic to local concerns, but usually unable to assist.

    Cons

    Worked for a remote unit. No career opportunities, and no growth potential. No local management. Web site was atrocious, when trying to find out anything within the company. If you have a family, Health care was expensive. No type of separation packet whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your workers, and if you cant offer them perks, at least show them other possibilities like beneficial training and educational information.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, I had some great coworkers, a flexible schedule, and decent pay. I was able to get a large variety of projects and work for multiple teams.

    Cons

    Management didn't seem excited about the future, not a lot of upward mobility, seemed very stagnant. People did not seem thrilled to be where they were.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more questions/suggestions of lower-level employees, need more energy overall.

    Pros

    Regular paychecks, work-life balance is very good, great co-workers. Exciting and interesting being on base and away from the outside community.

    Cons

    The contract eventually goes up for bid and or ends. Uncertainty is a fact, the employees become a little unnerved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management style is working fine for a global company.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great culture. I found deadlines were always met, but not because they grinded employees to death, but rather because the management team is highly efficient and transparent about what needs to be done

    Cons

    It is a large company so obviously it is tough to get quality face time with management, and in terms of perks there really were not a whole lot of awesome ones I was not expecting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe just make it a point to get to know members of your teams a bit more, it might help improve the overall enthusiasm levels.
