Pros

Historically employee focused, collaborative, great place to work

Cons

With Mike Lawrie's restructuring plan things have changed dramatically. Benefits were reduced and employees fear salary cuts are next. We just finished the first round of restructuring/flattening/layoffs and it appears a second round will begin soon. Even employees fully billable to contracts have been terminated. Everyone, even Executive VPs, is being moved to tiny 6' x 4' cubes without walls - you literally look the person across from you in the face while working. Staff reductions carried out byt 20-somethings from Boston Consulting who seem to have no regard for value, evaluations or performance of staff. Today, it's an environment of uncertainty, doubt and fear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest with employees. Rather than vague discussion of flattening the organization and being customer focused tell us that there will be layoffs and why. Tell us that in order to reduce real estate costs everyone is being moved into move compact space. If you'd just be open and communicate with the employees you'd reduce anxiety and find you have a much more motivated and understanding workforce.

    I have been working at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very competitive compensation for bleeding edge I..T. consultants and analysts. A lot of seasoned colleagues. Excellent career development programs as well as education reimbursement. Well established. Global.

    Cons

    The current transformation has resulted in employees feeling insecure this past year (3/2012-3/2013). Change in employees' benefit premiums that began 1/2103 has been substantial. Remote and virtual employees are sometimes notified at the last minute when it comes to new procedures, etc. and employee deadlines. "The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing" since the transformations began.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out to your subordinates and reassure them that the transformation will result in positive things for CSC.
