    Pros

    Friendly and helpful colleagues. Emphasis on learning and individual growth. Benefits begin on day one. Good place for a foot in the door.

    Cons

    Managers are entrenched in archaic management techniques. Constantly understaffed with high volumes of work even though CSC charges the government 3-4 times more than what they pay their employees that are doing the work. Many directors/managers have a "tenure ego" that gets in the way of productivity. Pay is lower than average among companies of the same industry. Typical corporate ladder environment; lack of room for internal growth and promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to take a less "anal, by the book" approach to managing employees. Strict approval chains get in the way, although sometimes necessary. Suggest more fluidity and more staffing....CSC makes more than enough money.

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time for more than 3 years

    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).
