I worked at Electronic Data Systems

Pros

Great co-workers that help you when needed and understand and help with your frustration at work. Service juggernaut that had large accounts which meant there was plenty of work.

Cons

Frustrating compensation and promotion hurdles. Plenty of work meant that you were doing more than plenty of work. Work life balancing act was difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to your people managers and whether they use nepotism in picking and choosing employees for promotions and opportunities.

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems

    Pros

    It was a place where employees were recognized and rewarded...happy people made for happy customers and a viable, profitable business

    Cons

    it isn't that way any more (especially since acquisition by HP). Bottom line is all that matters. Customer and people thrown out the window

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the grassroots wisdoms. Taking care of your people (and consequently your business and customer) never goes out of style. Look at the big picture and not just the next quarter
