    Pros

    Work from home 2 day's a weeks.

    Cons

    80hr work weeks, No leadership at the account levels. No raises in 3 years. Pay cuts and layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some off your executive bonuses and reward the people left. They are your biggest EDS fans and are busting their butts to make it through these tough times. Its time to downsize the account executives, You are paying these guys way to much money when the account managers do all the work and would suffice. Also take a look at the administrative positions. You can afford to let anymore technical people go with out seeing it hit your account profit margins.

    Pros

    Get some basic experience for a resume

    Cons

    For those assimilated by the EDS Borg via outsourcing, the experience is miserable. You are quickly told that quality is second to providing "service" at the lowest cost possible. They underbid contracts to get the deal, then work the employees to death at minimal compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect your employees. Have some prode in your deloverables and look beyond the $$.
