EDS purchased the smaller company Metaphase.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood salary schedule. Raises happened on a regular schedule.
Division meetings kept employees abreast of latest developments.
Reviews were regular and helpful.

ConsChanges had to go through layers of bureaucracy.
Layoffs greatly increased workload of those remaining. The number and complexity of projects did not decrease with a smaller workforce.

Advice to Senior ManagementBalance the needs of employees and shareholders. Make sure that short term financial gains do not hold precedence over long term fiscal health.
