Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Kansas City, MO

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

Pros

Extremely flexible hours and telecommuting is encouraged.
Visionary, experienced CEO making dramatic changes.

Cons

Very little investment in technology and planning for future unless funded by an existing client or project.
Very heavy in senior management and experienced professionals; very litte investment in college graduates or new hires with 2-10 years experience.
Very large company with many silos.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in the technology you boast about being able to provide. Fund initiatives that will drive growth in lagging markets like Financial Services. Invest in career training for current employees and promote the CSC brand to the next generation of college graduates and potential new hires.

    Pros

    Great people and in the past they took care of their people perhaps to a fault.

    Cons

    With the restructuring everyone is going through trama. While the business need is understood the communications at least in my group could be improved.

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

    Pros

    A few good, honest people, desiring to do well, even with the deck stacked against them.

    Cons

    Sparse documentation, planning, facilities, tools. Plenty of red tape and politics. Too many technical people in client facing roles who possess zero people/business skills. Pay rates far below industry averages, for entry level through heavily experienced / high profile/risk roles. Worst HR/on-boarding experience in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step back, invest in introspective/resolution/process fixes and then move forward. Avoid forcing your staff to work 80-100 hour, 7-day weeks, months at a time, with no breaks & then wonder why their productivity and/or work quality drops, and they get then irritable/ill/the desire to leave.
