Does EDS care about its employees at all?

Pros

My team was moved from Symantec to EDS a year ago. I suppose the pro would be that I still work with many of them, and they're great people.

Cons

There is nobody around me who works for EDS who isn't completely demoralized. The company has delivered pay cut after pay cut (some in excess of 30%). Some of us have literally been told that now matter how we perform, we will be getting more pay cuts next year. Also, for an IT services company, wading through EDS's IT is like pulling teeth; it lierally takes me days every time I need to figure out how to do something like signing up for benefits online. Some of us haven't even been told what our job titles are.

And since being bought out by HP, it has only gotten worse.

In short, there is nobody who works within 50 feet of me who are not (sometimes desperately) looking for another job. Avoid this company at all costs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why would I give feedback to the leadership? It is clear that they either don't listen to us or don't care.

    Pros

    Some intelligent hard-working people that are fun to work with.

    Demand for services from HP/EDS likely to increase as companies continue to out-source.

    A lot of potential for the company to do great things once the obliteration o f EDS by HP is completed

    Cons

    Very disorganized due to absorption of EDS into HP – a lot of conflicting direction coming from different levels in management

    for an IT services company their internal IT is terrible

    a tendency to “spin” their communications instead of just stating what they mean.

    Travel restricted, training dollars non-existent.

    A lot of time is wasted on lame training that has no professional value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on making employees your collaborators instead of current practice of making them adversaries. Employees are not children to be cared for; they are intelligent individuals that understand the business environment and want to succeed.
