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

Pros

Learning library available to expand your skills ...if you ever had any free time.

Cons

Excessive overtime is always expected. Deadlines are unrealistic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher project managers that present resource leveled plans and stop cutting 40% from the timeline but still expecting 110% of the workload to be completed. What happened to work life balance?

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time (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.
