    Pros

    With over 20 years with EDS, I can honestly say that the ability to manage your own career, make connections with other people and ability to move to new areas is great. You can go from a finance job to an HR job to a Consulting job and into an IT job based on your performance and ability to get the job done. Once you are in the door, the opportunities to move to new work at least every 18 months allows you to build your skills and knowledge.

    Cons

    They will eat you up and spit you out with out a second glance. All that hard work and effort does not create any type of loyalty to you as an employee. There may be a formal career development process, but leadership is non-existent in the support of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want people to put out their best work, you have to treat them fairly and reward them with intrinsic rewards, not just the extrinsic rewards.

    I have been working at Electronic Data Systems

    Pros

    EDS is a global company and gives the opportunity to change locations easily with inside job transfers.

    Cons

    The benefits package is bad, but should be better when the full HP benefits package is implemented in 2010.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of waste and over-employment at my location. We have too many people doing very little and are overpaid. EDS could save a bunch of money by cutting back and relying on skilled workers to get the job done instead.
