    Pros

    EDS sounds good on your resume. Benefits are decent but not exceptional. Range of work possible and the locations you could work are large/

    Cons

    Pay is poor. Many roles are hourly. Payroll make so many errors (like being paid $52 for 2 weeks) that you wonder if the company is trying to balance its books by not paying workers on time.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    EDS 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 ManagementAdvice

    Learn to lead, and reinvent the business/industry!
