    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
