I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Initial training programs for new graduates
- Was once a great company
- Was once full of good people
- Was once led by Ross Perot

Cons

- Work harder than ever for the worst raises that are scheduled to be late every year so you only get 4 increases every 5 years at best.
- Has been a sinking ship for 30 years.
- Old school management that gets the worst out of people by making them despise their employer.
- Unethical practices made it an embarrassment to admit who signed my checks.
- What you do means nothing, who you know means everything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- People are not cogs.
- People have lives outside of work.
