Pros

A person can earn a decent wage at CSC depending on the division and project that you might be working on and depending on the project you are on either no real micro-manager or micro-managed so something for everyone.

Cons

Insincere management from the standpoint that they may tell you one thing and do something completely different, an example would be that job satisfaction not a big concern as long as you are doing your job and the client is not complaining about your performance. Real world skill advancement seems quiet limited. Unless it is just an absolute necessity for the project you are on and the client places a great deal of importance on it your real world training options are going to be limited.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider an aggressive marketing campaign and upper level management that can make things happen in the real world and not on paper.

    Pros

    CSC, within its Federal Consulting Practice, offers a fantastic work-life balance, access to industry leading Portal technology, Computer-Based and Classroom education and training, and the ability to chose from a wide variety of career choices. Management is effective at communicating events, has effective promotion processes in place, and provides fair compensation for its employees.

    Cons

    CSC, though a large global technology firm, can stand for "CSC-Collection of Small Companies". This means that there is not one uniform CSC. An example of this is I work for a 1000 person consulting practices within CSC that I would be the farm on that the other 92,000 other employees don't know we exist. Likewise, most if not all of our 1,000 consultants wouldn't be able to effectively tell someone the breadthe of offerings CSC writ large can offer.

    Pros

    Provides a wide variety of experience possibilities. Company generally does not overwork employees. Wages are fair, but not high.

    Cons

    Very large organization (~90,000 people). Average age of employees scales upward over many competitors. Many people are basically holding down jobs and not trying to work their way up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management age is too high for a technology business. In the Federal Sector, they need to be promoting people in their early 40's into senior line positions. Many tend to be in their late 50's. The entire senior management of the Federal Consulting Practice is nearing retirement. No fire in the belly.
