    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees have a culture of being helpful and capable

    Cons

    To quote a senior executive "We are on a march to hell and will likely fail" The current leadership direction is strictly to cut costs at the expense of the clients and employees. The management culture is one of secrecy and deception

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the share price - the current approach will bring short lived success and will not position the company for growth. Don't hire executives from also ran companies. HP is contributing a lot of new executives, HP! Why are they bringing in executives who know how to grow? Where are people from Accenture, Cognizant, TCS, etc

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CSC's nascent federal consulting practice (formerly known as FCP, called something else) had some good, nice people. Innovative career development and mentoring model. Good mix of people that included some smart, nice young consultants.

    Cons

    Outside of FCP and other pockets, CSC is an old, slow, conservative company led by old, white, American males who have spent most of their careers in the US govt market----to the contrary of being its self-image as a global technology company. The company is massive...and bureaucratic. Have to go through so many layers of depts that don't talk to each other to get anything done. Also saw alot of kids w/ mediocre resumes get in b/c their parents worked there...have mixed feelings about that.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep people, expand your career development model to the rest of CSC outside of FCP...FCP is too small a space. For CSC---your slow, conservative mindset = dead man walking; maybe you will be lucky to be acquired by IBM or Accenture for your cash cow legacy govt programs. You need to wake up and invest in innovation, talent development and get off of just doing call centers and systems implentation, "everything as a service"---and actually produce something original. Mediocrity does not sell well.
