    Pros

    Decent compensation, although only because it carried over when we were outsourced to them. They did technology well.

    Cons

    Always cutting staff, which made for tense work environment. Had to lay off 2 folks before getting the same treatment 3+ months later. By that time, it was part of HP, so they bear equal (if not more) "blame" for that environment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on putting a good product at a fair price on the field.

    Pros

    EDS took a chance on someone who was new to the IT field, and they treated me well. I learned so much about datacenters and how physical security should be run while I was there. The people there were very helpful and understanding when it came to a new guy who was still learning his way.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, sometimes management was not approachable. Not my immediate boss, he was actually very approachable, but upper management. When I expressed my need to move forward with my career, it was met with an attitude that it was not important.

    Advice to Management

    When someone is looking to move forward with their career, advancing themselves, they may be a valuable asset to you. Keep this in mind when an employee approaches you about wanting to move forward and do more.
