Pros

There is good project work for talented people. EDS supports a broad range of technologies and there is always a willingness to move into new areas. There are some very good people at EDS, not all, but many.

Cons

Too many layers of management. Expenses are controlled by administrative types who have no idea what it's really like to travel on a regular basis. It is a large company, so many of the common complaints apply. Decisions are driven from the top. As a P&L manager, the business is no longer your own. This is a change that's taken place over the last decade as the competition and economy have tightened.

Advice to Management

Fire the CEO. Ron Rittenmeyer has the carisma of a toad. He commands no respect in the industry or the company based on his actions.

    Pros

    EDS has some redeeming qualities:
    VERY good work/life balance. I typically barely work 40hrs/wk. And honestly most of the day is not very intesne.
    Pretty generous vacation policy: I got 3 weeks off as a new hire. Even better if you can get on the GM account, tons of bonus vacation days.
    Workplace is not very competitve, If one cares at all and is remotely intelligent you can probably advance in your career.

    Cons

    Wow where to begin....

    Piss poor compensation. And going down. Within the past month a 5% cut, then another 10%. Plus Salary Freezes.
    Job cuts related to merger.
    Management consistently disrespects and devalues the employees.

    Would recommend this company to no one. Particularly new college graduates as the culture is very bad: everyone is 40-50 year old and boring.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a decent work environment and show the employees some respect when it comes to compensation.
