    Pros

    EDS had one of the best cultures during my tenture. There was always lots of opportunity for career growth and learning.

    Cons

    EDS started to lose it way - starting with Dick Brown - as it brought in too many outsiders to lead the company. They lacked vision and leadership in an industry that Ross Perot invented.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to lead, and reinvent the business/industry!

    Pros

    The EDS culture allows individuals to respect their work and personal lives. The company stands by people who are committed and provides excellent career path and compensation. A lot of top managers are technical enough to understand the job that needed to be done.

    Cons

    Some top managements weren't as qualified. There was also some amount of communication breakdown especially when there was a transition (merging, separating, buying, selling of accounts and human resources) but that's understandable.

    Advice to Management

    Leaderships at EDS should try to acquire the MBA degree. A lot of them are technical but may lack in leadership skills.
