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.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Several highly experienced personnel who are happy to help with your growth.

    Cons

    EDS was overtaken by HP and was never the same again. Salaries got slashed across the board, experienced employees got laid off, customer lost their confidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're slashing people's salaries, don't give your selves bonuses of millions of dollars. Don't cut cost at the expense of the quality you provide to the customer. Don't cut costs from programs that make you money. Stop micro-managing. Get your priorities in order. Don't promote incompetent people to management positions.

    Pros

    I started this job right out of college and it is perfect for newbies as an introduction into the corporate world.

    Cons

    The job came with on the job training as opposed to being sent off for training. Also, the salary is not very competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was great and I don't have any real complaints. Communication was excellent and they let you know every step of the way how you were performing.
