I worked at Electronic Data Systems

Pros

Pay and benefits are very reasonable

Cons

This place is literally modern-day slavery on American soil. The culture and business model appears to be to bring in labor from off-shore and work people to death under threat of deportation. At one point, my whole team was made to stay until 9:30pm for an upcoming "meeting", at which time we were corralled into a room and told our project was behind and we were all going to start working 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is one example of many instances of mistreatment, and the project was mismanaged terribly. Upon quitting, I was not paid for my last several days of work. This culture started before EDS bought out Saber Corp and continued uninterrupted, but hopefully one day EDS will recognize the issues and clean this place up.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is professional but relaxed, allowing a person to meet the requirements to be successful

    Cons

    There was a lot of turn around in personal at one time, at one point there as not enough and then it was over crowded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the manager allows the employees to take part in decision-making: therefore everything is agreed by the majority. The communication is extensive in both directions (from employees to leaders and vice-versa). This style can be particularly useful when complex decisions need to be made that require a range of specialist skills: for example, when a new ICT system needs to be put in place, and the upper management of the business is computer-illiterate. From the overall business's point of view, job satisfaction and quality of work will improve. However, the decision-making process is severely slowed down, and the need of a consensus may avoid taking the 'best' decision for the
