Pros

CSC is very large. No one takes it personally if you want to move to a different job within the company. Most managers are quite helpful, in fact. Benefits are typical for a large corporation: adequate to good. It's almost impossible to get fired.

Cons

CSC's size can also be a con -- if you want to feel like you're really making a difference, this is not the place for you.

    Pros

    Employees can work remotely from home.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected. The reorganization going on is a tired model that other companies, i.e. HP, EMC, Cisco have used and well failed. Well CSC hired the failed senior management from these companies. Hi performers, industry respected people are demoted, downsized, go looking for other jobs. Mediocre staff that run projects red, lose large accounts are promoted. There are favorites who can not do the work, tell the client "I don't know what anyone is working on" when they are the lead. CSC does not know what a PMO is nor what is a project manager. The SE's and AE's run the show and give away the company talent as free work to the customer, then blame the company talent for not generating revenue. The work load does not scale to the resources available with a SA finding he needs to work 24x7 to just status quo. They play really dirty politics. They are off shoring everything at a time when companies are bringing work back. They are affecting stock price by laying off purely based on salary ranges. They play games by telling the A players they are off a project and then put a C player on the project, let the project run red and lose the project to another vendor. The people with talent, the A players are leaving and this is becoming a C-player company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest. Recognize your talent. Respect you people. Learn team work. Learn collaboration. Give raises once in 5 years.
