Cheap company which only cares about the bottom line.

I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The co-workers were great bunch of guys who were as experienced as I was. We're all had at least 10 years of IT experience, so there was no spoon feeding necessary.
If you like very little management interaction (as I do), I list it as a pro here. Most of the time the managers don't even know that you've showed up to work. The ratio of mgmt to workers is well below industry norm.

Cons

Very little communication from top down. Management is very heavy at the director and above. There were more Directors and VP's on our project than there were managers. And those at the top only knew how to pad the bottom line. Good workers were cut to save money. Newbies were brought in to replace them, but lacked the skills needed to perform the job properly, but CSC saved money in the process.
Consider yourself a cattle when you enter CSC.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to your employees and listen to them during the monthly meeting. Don't just rely on the managers and directors, they are there to kiss your ass. They are a bunch of "yes" men.

    Pros

    Large Company with many resources

    Cons

    Not willing to negotiate on project salaries. Pay increases are not built into the contract. Once you reach a certain pay rate on the contract, you will need to take a pay cut or be replaced. They price to win, not to retain good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee retention should be factored into federal contracts with annual increases for COLA and performance increases (these are two different things).
