    great culture

    Fellow (Former Employee) Plano, TX

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

    ConsEDS 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 Senior ManagementLearn to lead, and reinvent the business/industry!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Once you have mastered your new skill set, go and work in another place to be compensated fairly

    ProsGood place for getting training for new skill set

    ConsCompensation for your skill set is inadequate

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to employees regarding how much of bonus is allocated to each business group, employees on the floor usually hear of bonuses but they do not actually get any.

    EDS is for professionals who strive to provide excellent service. Company treats employees fairly.

    Information Specialist (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe 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.

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

    EDS

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsEDS is great if there is a family problem and you need assistance. There are many instances where the company has helped a team member through a crisis.

    ConsExpectations that family will come second after work. Management has no problem with employees working nights, weekends, etc with no thought of the employees mental or physical health.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes and plan better. Unahppy employees do not tend to perform well. Encouragement and appreciation goes a long way.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
