    Great team environment. I was unfortunate that I had to leave the company due to unforeseen personal issues.

    Schedule changed monthly and had a rotating weekend skeleton crew for grave shifts which can be automated

    Would have like more communication between management and team about upcoming projects and what to expect due to special events

    Pros

    worked with great people and on our account it felt like a family. We all worked together as a team to accomplish what we needed to for the client.

    Cons

    Put in a ton of hours and was on call 7x24. I preferred it more when HP didn't own the company and we were independent. With HP I felt like more of a number than a person.

    Cons

    project deadlines (long hours)
    bad corp decisions in later years
    EDS was a very good company to work for in the 80s and 90s. Not as much in the 00s. Therefore, I left to pursue a better opportunity.

    Pros

    The people who stuck it out tried their best of the situation with a company that was swallowed up by HP and downsized anyone from EDS that remained.

    Cons

    No raises, pay cuts, couldn't buy office supplies they were so cheap.

    Advice to Management

    Plan account take overs realistically. You can do it in a few months.
