Stressful and stagnant

Systems (Former Employee)
Madison, WI

ProsCoworkers were always the redeeming feature of the account. There were a few duds but many were extremely sharp, and willing to help coworkers learn.

ConsSame gripes as every other EDS account on the planet: below market pay, massive amounts of unpaid overtime, no training or tuition reimbursement, no time for learning or keeping technical skills current due to understaffing and excessive workloads, miserly raises and bonuses, lots of earned vacation and manager-mandated vacation freezes, and the constant threat of losing your job whenever EDS thinks it's cheaper to cut workers than reduce executive bonuses.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone, these are longstanding problems for EDS and HP both and the execs would have resolved them long ago if they considered these half as important as stock prices.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Treat them right and your customers will be happy, treat them… More
