    Supportive environment, but understaffed.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than a year)

    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 (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They can provide a paycheck and some benefits.

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees whatsoever, from my perspective they are just a giant pimping organization; they get paid for the contracts that I work on and are not concerned with what I do. Aside from the usual benefits that any large technical company will provide you get nothing. No perqs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as a valuable asset. Pay for additional education (not just for people in a degree program). Give more vacation time. Spend a little money on perqs. Act like a 21st century Silicon Valley company, not like a stodgy old white collar job shop.
