    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very ethical company doing fascinating work (if you're into that kind of thing). Good benefits package, opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Massive bureaucracy, easy to get lost in the shuffle. Outside-the-box thinking is suppressed in many cases. Corporate HQ in Virginia is a traffic blob.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees understand where their work is going and why it is important. That's the best thing for morale, as opposed to wondering what a lot of it is for.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time

    Pros

    straight forward work. the people were nice enough, and the job was rarely stressful. Never needed to work overtime, great location just outside of baltimore.

    Cons

    Often had little to do during the day. work revolved around a specific busy period in the middle of the month; outside of that time, did not really receive any challenging tasks

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The CEO has a vision and a plan. He actually seems to have a plan and some backup plans if option A doesn't work.

    Cons

    The talent level is company is great. Speaking from a software perspective the average employee wasn't capability enough to do high quality work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and people to move from a pure services company to a tech enable services company.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fair Pay, good co workers

    Cons

    CSC is selling off contracts, losing contracts cut over 35K in the past 3 years. Direct mgt does not care about workers, out right lies about employees they want to cut. Could care less about clients. Expect to work 60-80 hour work weeks and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Treat your employees with respect

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    pay used to be somewhat better for US employees.

    Cons

    It was once a good company. Due to the bad management its not able to compete with others and loosing many accounts. CEO is just into cost cutting to sale the company.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. You are killing one of the best consulting firm with strong values...

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As a consultant I was on several interesting projects

    Cons

    Benefits are almost non-existent. For many years the insurance deductible increased so much that I finally had to move from HMO to PPO to high deductible account.

    Advice to Management

    Be competitive with benefits and understand what people need and what they can afford.

    Pros

    Hard, challenging work. A long list of great projects that the company needs talented folks to work on.

    Cons

    hard, challenging work should be quite so hard or challenging but there's a never ending stream of unreasonable challenges that seem to go hand in hand with each new project. "Do it fast, cheaper, with less people but make it best amongst our peers. Or at least faster and cheaper".

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to sell the company so a dozen big stock shareholders can get filthy rich and instead try and grow our company back to the greatness it once has in our tech sector/industry. The era of ":greed over all" shouldn't be interwoven into everything, and there are 75,000 people that count on this company to feed their families. Wake up, managment, how much is enough??
