I have been working at Electronic Data Systems

Pros

The workload is fairly light in some groups, allowing time for studying and preparing for future employment. Of course there isn't any training budget, but if you're motivated you can find the training you need.

Cons

I thought things were bad before, but now that we're owned by HP it's gotten even worse. All benefits have been trimmed -- there isn't even money for office supplies. A couple of months ago, there were modest, company-wide pay cuts. Now as part of a Job Code Integration process, some of us are losing an additional 20% (or more) from our salaries.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All those "motivational" memos and town hall meetings really don't motivate your employees. What motivates us is being treated like intelligent human beings and being fairly compensated.

    Sensitive to balancing work and family

    Cons

    It is owned by HP
    It is run by a little dictator who does not understand EDS' business
    Quickly being replaced by off-shore, who like Hurd, do not understand the business
    Too many layoffs and too many pay cuts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and stick up for EDS...Don't let Hurd destroy it

    Pros

    There is very little good to say about EDS these days. EDS was once was a company that I was very proud to work for, but now it is just a paycheck until I find something better.

    Cons

    Our pay has become stagnant, as well as out ability to move to different organizations within the company. Management has become numb to our concerns & just gives us the same canned answer day after day... "If you don't like it, feel free to leave."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it is time to stop worrying about the investors & start worrying about the employees. Great employees will take care of the investors, but not if they all leave for greener pastures.
