Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Kansas City, MO

I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time for 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.

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

    Pros

    Decent work/life balance, decent benefits, good people and changing (for the better) upper management

    Cons

    Does not do a good job matching skills to projects, not a lot of flexibility for consultants, many people being axed currently (despite longevity at company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing to make this company competitive. Lower level management can be basically clueless

    I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time

    Pros

    Whether or not you agree with your rate of pay, you are paid on time and mostly accurately.

    Cons

    This is the worst managed company that I have worked for in my career. For the vast numbers of employees there are relatively few decision makers at any level because they are scared to think outside the box. The managers agree to whatever austere measures executive managment throws at them in order to keep their jobs.

    Mike Lawrie is running a shell company right now full of consultants who have become the decision makers regardless of the consequences of the decisions. He has wrong headedly allowed them to suggest and lay off people based on their age, salaries and length of time with the company when many of these employees were performing the majority of the work in their areas. As people were cut, in many cases their work has never been picked up because nobody knew how are what to do.

    Employees have been disrespected for years by being forced to take vacations with little notice, expensive health benefits, frozen pensions (none for new employees), lack of advancement opportunities and discriminatory practices are the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No hope. Perhaps a sell will save the employees.
