    Pros

    OK place to work at be sty, it really depends on what group you work in. CSC is commonly referred to as a "Collection of Small Companies" due in part to different groups commonly working against one another in a disjointed way. Salary is on target or slightly lower than industry standards depending upon how long you have been employed at CSC. Employees with longer tenure are way more likely to be compensated significantly under market value. Raises are far and few in between.

    Cons

    One of CSC's strongest offerings has traditionally been it's health insurance plan. CSC just announced that it's 2013 health insurance costs passed onto employees has skyrocketed. For a family (wife, kids, etc) the cost in 2013 will be about 400% more than the same coverage in 2012. My family will now have to pay just under $950/month for coverage that really isn't all that great anyway. My personal belief is that the new CEO (Mike Lawrie) has a big stake in CSC's decision to impact all employees by increasing costs to a point where they are quite literally taking health insurance out of reach for many employees who don't have working spouses whom they can switch their health insurance over to. I'm sure it looked really great on paper when this idea was devised but CSC is only hurting it's most valuable asset...it's own PEOPLE!

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of your posterior. Results of the 2012 employee satisfaction survey outlined a couple key plays for 2013. Increase communications, increase employee satisfaction, and improve upon CSC's bad employee retention track record. Bravo Mr. Lawrie!! While you make 10x - 20x more than the average employee I'm confident you will sleep well at night knowing that you're paying the same monthly cost for your family as the average CSC employee down in the trenches working hard on a daily basis to support you and your precious stockholders!

    Pros

    Overall, a great experience for someone just out of undergrad. The fairly flat organizational structure and open door policy allowed for lots of exposure to partners and key leaders within the organization. Additionally, there was always the opportunity to position yourself for reach roles.

    Cons

    The company did not have a great promotion plan/path for mid-level consultants which showed in the structure of the organization (many partners/principles and many associates with less staff/senior consultants).
