I worked at Computer Sciences Corp as a contractor for more than 3 years

Pros

Some projects/departments have very well defined processes and procedures and must be followed closely for compliance reasons so there is no question about how things should be done. Provides good structure and sets expectations up front.

Cons

During the economic uncertainty in 2012-2013, they are trying to do a lot more with a lot less thus overtaxing their existing staff, and contractors even more so. Contractors in my department were not treated like a team member but more like an expendable piece of equipment. They push it so hard to the breaking point, squeeze out every last drop of energy, then throw it out and get a new one.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat contractors (and employees) with more respect.
They are there to provide business/technical expertise and they are human.
Make people feel valued and they will want to do good work.

    -Customers are angry the deadlines continue to be missed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. This company is heading down the tubes and employees are bailing when possible. You have fired great people. Now I'm firing CSC at the first opportunity.
