Pros

A decent variety of projects to work on . However, this may depend on the particular account a person is working on.

Cons

Management is some what disconnected from employees. Management Focus is on silly things that (at times) that has nothing to do with productivity.

Advice to Management

Straighten your act up before it's too late

    Pros

    CSC has good training resources with Skillsoft. For the most part, they are supportive of their employees.

    Cons

    Here are some suggestions for improvement The sick time policy does not reward good health. CSC’s policy is “use it or lose it”. You might want to consider what other companies are doing, such as General Dynamics. They treat unused sick time as earned time, and buy it from the employee when terminating. Unpaid extra hours – no benefit sharing. When employees work extra hours at my client, CSC billed the full rate, and shared none of it with the employee. You might want to consider sharing some of the extra revenue with the people who create it. CSC has a good policy regarding customer service, but no policy regarding internal culture. Internal teams can have hampered productivity because of friction and conflict. A good source of information on internal culture is Dave Ramsey’s teachings, he’s had some good material in Entreleadership podcasts. Here is a summary: • No gossip, no negative comments about others unless you are talking to someone who can solve the problem. No hidden agendas. Have humility. Even the most brilliant among us have made dumb statements and decisions. • Have grace for others. No disagreements except at public meetings. It is OK to have conflict, calm is not the goal. If you’re fuming inside, talk about it with the right person. • Treat others with dignity and respect. Have praise. QA procedures – there is some redundancy and overlap. Example: the project definition and BSDR have overlapping content.

    Pros

    The work was challenging and never dull. There are a lot of great people that work there, but not many stay.

    Cons

    The management philosophy was very similar to the military. Do what are you are told, when you are told and how you are told. Any details are on a need to basis only, with many details never communicated to the ranks. There is very little upward mobility and the management makes very poor decisions for short term results. Compensation, facilities and equipment are on the low end.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people as valuable resources. Give them an opportunity to contribute and be involved. By constantly laying off folks, you are losing the knowledge that allows you to grow your business.
