    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    EDS took a chance on someone who was new to the IT field, and they treated me well. I learned so much about datacenters and how physical security should be run while I was there. The people there were very helpful and understanding when it came to a new guy who was still learning his way.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, sometimes management was not approachable. Not my immediate boss, he was actually very approachable, but upper management. When I expressed my need to move forward with my career, it was met with an attitude that it was not important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone is looking to move forward with their career, advancing themselves, they may be a valuable asset to you. Keep this in mind when an employee approaches you about wanting to move forward and do more.

    Pros

    In the early years, EDS was a great place to work.

    Cons

    Things started to go south when the company was spu off from GM. Local management was awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Take care of your employees.
