I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time for less than a year

Pros

The salary is competitive, benefits are reasonable. The call center does allow for flexible schedules such as four 10 hour days.

Cons

The management of the call center was terrible - you were always presumed to be at fault if anything happened and everyone was always afraid that you would be laid off. It wasn't a pleasant atmosphere to work in always afraid for your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Coaching should always be balanced with recognition of when someone does something good as well as being more proactive in creating a good working relationship with the employees. No one should ever fear for their job for one mistake.

    Former Employee - Service Delivery Manager in Newark, DE

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent compensation, although only because it carried over when we were outsourced to them. They did technology well.

    Cons

    Always cutting staff, which made for tense work environment. Had to lay off 2 folks before getting the same treatment 3+ months later. By that time, it was part of HP, so they bear equal (if not more) "blame" for that environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on putting a good product at a fair price on the field.
