    Pros

    CSC has a lot of presence in the federal contracting world and Ive worked with some very talented people from proposal management to operations.

    Cons

    Be prepared to fully execute your skills and talent and work very long hours for a well respected company in technology and systems integration.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp

    Pros

    CSC was a great company to work for, many career opportunities along the way, open collaborative team environment, colleagues interested in the team and the companies success, many opportunities to develop staff and mentor more junior members of the staff.

    Cons

    Felt that the new management would revitalize the company and the companies commitment to service excellence creating new opportunities for the staff. After about a year I was disappointed with the leadership focus on continues cost reductions at any cost and not enough focus on business development.

    Advice to Management

    The IT Services business must grow through new client acquisition and not simply by reducing cost.

    Pros

    Taking the work component out of it, there are great individuals all over the place. They're just getting pummeled by management. I'm sure many continue to look for new opportunities outside CSC while older individuals are simply trying to hang on waiting for retirement.

    Cons

    Dwindling benefits such as expensive health care choices, a mediocre 401k plan that only matches once a year, and zero training opportunities (an outdated learning portal doesn't count). Corporate politics get in the way and nothing actually gets done, just meetings with no action items. Management changes often and, as such, direction changes constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees like people (if you even care, that is). The flood of great talent leaving the company is tremendous.

    Pros

    Great people unless they are in fear of their own job

    Cons

    No loyalty at all. Only interested in offshoring roles

    Advice to Management

    Value experience. Before you blindly lay people off you might be surprised to find many people will help a company survive by taking a pay cut for the right reasons but generally not for greedy execs.

    Pros

    I have a job. Reasonable pay and work life balance.

    Cons

    Employee morale. CEO bonus plan is based on stock price, so they have been inflating the stock price for the past 4 years by increasing profit margins, even though revenue is way down. How do they increase profit margins? By outsourcing to India, cutting benefits, and closing offices. I work in the Americas, and half of the middle to upper management have been replaced by Indian names.

    Advice to Management

    Get a heart. Get a clue.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow you career and gain a variety of experience. Unfortunately you will have to go elsewhere to recognize any financial gain.

    Cons

    Corporate transition is a disaster. No raises. Benefits reduced. Bonuses cut. Near zero opportunity for training that isn't computer based learning. Touting "culture" that has not existed at the company for years.

    Advice to Management

    Own the issues caused by splitting the company. It is worse to have meetings that leave employees knowing you are misleading then to just have no meeting at all.
