I have been working at Unisys

Pros

They have implemented a performance based earnings system where you get paid by how well you perform. They also provide relevant training to employees depending on their job roles

Cons

There's no room for growth, and benefits have been revoked. Tuition re-imbursement is no more and the company would rather hire from outside the company to fill in a position that promote from within. Its an unethical way to save the company money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is to heavy and manage from remote locations. Best management practice stipulates efficiency and effectiveness starts with the project lead being onsite with team members. There are a lot of unseasoned managers who have risen over the years, but have old ideas and mentality, with lacking formal education. Managers are self centered and care only about themselves. They don't provide path way for growth of their subordinates.

    I worked at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Consistancy and roll out of vision and stategy. Albeit, the vison and strategy is continual "right sizing"

    Cons

    Middle managment is mostly comprised of ex-Field Service engineers who grew up fixing hardware and were so good at it, that they were promoted to managment roles were they have proven to be totally ineffective, uneducated and way under qualified. Supply Chain Managment and Product/Services planning just to name two specific areas.

    The culture is one of "good ole boys club" where hard work and higher education is down played in favor of who knew, back when.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the middle to senior managment ranks that have over 15 years senority, no college degree (the norm) and at one time repaired equipment for Unisys/Sperry/Burroughs.

    I worked at Unisys full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Company once had great culture and was customer focused

    Cons

    The merger years ago gradually killed the culture and customer focus, changed management, continued shuffling of management and focus, is dragging the company down. Once they sold off the old Borroughs Payment Systems Division, it doomed part of their mainframe line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to a customer, employee focused approach! Shoot for a balance between technology, hardware and services, being totally services focused means you are competing in a market you can never be a real leader in.
