    Former Employee - Infrastructure Specialist in Webster, NY

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Former Contractor - Game Tester in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun workplace, good profile, interesting work. The game testing division was subsumed by HP completely and therefore improved opportunities for employees.

    Cons

    The work hours were long and there was little chance of advancement. I do not know how it is after the merging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve salaries and hire more mid level management.
