Brand New Logo--Same Old Problems

Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) Egg Harbor Township, NJ

ProsAt least at Egg Harbor Township (near FAA Tech Center), every day dress code is "beach casual".
Some good people and some good projects.

ConsParochial environment. Most employees attended the same local schools and graduated from Richard Stockton. You may find it hard to fit in if you didn't.

Company hires too many people with unrelated backgrounds (e.g. marine biology) as long as they put in the hours. They treat software development as a lightweight skill (like welding) that almost anybody could just "pick up" with a few weeks of training.

Advice to Senior ManagementBack off on the daily barrage of generic corporate email blabber that has nothing
to do with our location, our jobs or our lives. Seriously, nobody cares.

Things really started to fall apart about five years ago ($60 to $20/share)
when "The New CSC" tried to be everything to everybody. At that point,
no amount of daily "sunshine from the CEO" made things any better.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great talent pool, but generally limited advancement potential

    Computer Scientist (Former Employee) El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: A wide variety of client companies enables the CSC employee… Cons: Client contracts are staffed conservatively and new business acquisition lags, so any change in client funding usually results in a layoff situation. Ability… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
