Pros

Lots of good reasons. Work life balance is really big at this company, and they are extremely flexible in terms of work hours, working from home, etc. In fact, it would probably not be a problem at all to work exclusivley from home, though I don't personally like doing that since I'm close to work anyways. The company seems to provide a lot of opportunities for advancement if you work hard, and make sure you get noticied. They seem to have a lot of respect for their high-performing individuals, and they do provide the opportunity to grow if you look for it.

Cons

There is virtualy no company pride or moral. The firm seems to have almost no identify at all, and it shows in the employees. We sell the quality of ourselves and our work, and not the identity of CSC, which I think is a real problem for the company. Additionally, the opportunities to define your own career path seem pretty contingent on what sort of projects you are on. Great for technical people, but not great for those interested in management consulting (unless you have prior experience). Essentially, associates get stuck doing testing and other menial tasks for about a year. Additionally, this is not a young company by any means.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The firm needs to do a better job defining who they are and what they provide.

    Immediate management was very responsive to my needs.
    Computer Sciences Corporation has a very large presence in the IT industry, which increased my visibility as an employee in the IT consulting sector.

    Benefits were not what I would expect from such a large (100k) company.
    Upwards mobility not clear

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time. They did an adequate job during my short time at CSC.

    Pros

    Job with health benefits, vacation and sick leave.

    Cons

    no room for career growth, recognition or promotions. It's a fine place to start but there's no need to linger for years. They under pay incoming graduates and new employees. There are many employees with depth and experience who could be making $20-30k more at another company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A full performance review should include everything achieved and accomplished through the year, not just the past few months. After working very hard with the organization for many years management doesn't feel promotions are necessary.
