Advice to ManagementAdvice

When HP purchased EDS, company lost focus of people, which EDS always said was their greatest asset. That stop being the focus 5-8 years ago.

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems

    Pros

    The EDS culture allows individuals to respect their work and personal lives. The company stands by people who are committed and provides excellent career path and compensation. A lot of top managers are technical enough to understand the job that needed to be done.

    Cons

    Some top managements weren't as qualified. There was also some amount of communication breakdown especially when there was a transition (merging, separating, buying, selling of accounts and human resources) but that's understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaderships at EDS should try to acquire the MBA degree. A lot of them are technical but may lack in leadership skills.
