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.

    Pros

    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

    my immediate group management is great
    part of an actual team that works well together
    great customer

    Cons

    upper management is self-serving and clueless when it comes to caring for the people that actually do the work and are the true assets of the company.
    The bottom line rules regardless of the longterm ramifications

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    care for your people!!!
