    Pros

    A big international company involved in many different markets and sectors. One of the oldest, and with a bright history. It has long-date partnerships with some of the oldest and most important companies of the country, and it's a good start if you want to get involved and get in touch with other people doing your same work.

    Cons

    Poor technical competencies in the bureaucratic management, no training, poor salary and little rewards. The compensation is low, compared even to the poorest countries in the world.

    Sales people has the bad habit of just sitting at their own desk and waiting for business opportunities to arrive, mostly because their salary is by most part fixed. This means that while waiting for opportunities, all the consultants must be kept idle. Being idle means that training would be too costly, and this brings personal competency growth to zero. There is not an R&D department inside the various country subsidiaries, to cut costs, and management firmly believes that the consultants will have plenty of opportunities to learn from the field. Customer satisfaction is not even taken into account.

    The top management is willing to spend something in terms of training and research just once an opportunity has arrived and the contracts have been signed, always too late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wipe out the current middle and top management who has not a serious background in Information Technology. Raise pay to employees, bring technology inside the company, first, and then outside. People cannot sell what they don't known.

    Pros

    It is a temporary paycheck until you can find another job, at least in the Outsourcing division. I have heard the other divisions are better places to work.

    Cons

    They value your contributions only if they have billable work forcasted for you or as long as the knowledge transfer to an offshore resource is going on. Once either of these conditions is no longer met, you are let go. There is no loyalty to long time employees. Management is constantly changing or moving around. I had 18 managers in 10 years. Very little training and non-billable resources are forced to take vacation time at end of year to help their books.

    They are the Wal-Mart of Outsourcing. A company only chooses CSC as their Outsourcer when they need the cheapest price because CSC will give away the house to book business. Look at their client base. A majority of them are having financial troubles. The other Outsourcers stay away from these clients. CSC has to take them on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a technology company, they should be focused on using technology as a tool to increase productivity instead of looking at it as an overhead cost. They rely too much on the brute labor and sweat equity of the staff to get work done. Increased productivity is due more to increased work hours then actual efficiencies.
