Great People & Environment - if only they paid market rates...

Project Manager (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

Pros- Excellent Teams
- Super flexible to your needs (homeworking, role change, account change etc...)
- Need to 'network' to achieve personal goals - but support offered to do this.
- Line Managers are very supportive but not enough authority to make 'things happen'.
- Good choice of accounts (most industries covered).
- Compared to other companies, good processes in place.
- Very good grad scheme (flexible to get what you want out of it)/

Cons- Salaries are not competitive.
- Difficult to get a promotion, even if you are working at a 'level higher'.
- Matrix promotion structure which is open to plenty interpretation, sometimes seen as unfair.

Advice to Senior ManagementCSC is a great place to work, and many of the people I met had been with tthe company for over 20years. Everyone is laid back and down to earth. I left the company with many friends for life.

Management have high (harsh) targets so it is easy to see what the drivers are.

Everyone I worked with was always helpful, supportive -and often would go beyond the call of duty. It's just a shame that CSC are not able to pay market values.

e.g. I am doing the same role now for 17k more. So there is a huge discrepancy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    100% billable hours are an ongoing nuisance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bristol, England (UK)

    I have been working at CSC UK


    Pros: - Flexible benefits mean up to 40 days leave. -… Cons: - I'm 100% billable. Therefore I need to find project to fill _all_ my time. - I'm responsible for hunting down 'cost codes' to bill… Advice to Senior Management: - Billable hours is a worthless commodity to trade in, as it's self devaluing. Focus instead on… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
