Does EDS care about its employees at all?

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Springfield, OR

ProsMy 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
