Pros

You had a flexible work schedule and the environment was clean to work in. There was also an onsight cafeteria which is definitely a plus.

Cons

Management seemed clueless at times as to the actual job you were doing. It was amazing that these people were going to evaluate your performance and yet had no experience as to the job you were doing. SIMPLY AMAZING!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The lack of communication was definitely a big problem. Also, there seemed to be a lack of standardization for processing procedures. There needs to be a training program other than on the job training fly by the seat of your pants training.

    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.
