Pros

Best of breed solutions, great teams, leveraged knowledge? Opportunities to develop a career due to the diversity of clients and solutions.

Company undertook some poor contracts leading to the loss of market position and enabling takeover by HP. Resulted in a loss flyover nance and overhead position as they cut costs to make the balance shheets to look good.

Advice to Management

None, they are gone.

    I have been working at Electronic Data Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you get very lucky, you might get to work for a leader who can motivate, mentor and inspire the staff. You can actually learn a lot from such a leader. We had a few in the past at EDS, but most have gone. With the good leader, along comes opportunities for various experiences, training and even promotion.

    Cons

    There are very few good leaders at EDS. Even in the past, when we had a few, the more senior ranks were awful.

    Advice to Management

    Ross Perot envisaged a dynamic business excelling at providing I T Services and an inspirational place to work. We have become a financial juggling company that doesnt care, despite the bull, about the customers or the staff. It is all about numbers. As an I T Services company, if we offered excellence, we would grow and be profitable. As it is, we offer financial juggling, deliver as little as possible for as much as possible and pay our staff as little as we can. I guess by offshoring and keeping our prices rock bottom, we are the Wal Mart of the industry. No quality, good price.
