I have been working at Unisys as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Lots of talent within the company--at least the teams I interacted with. Everyone seems very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise. Management has upheld its word and promises and has been honest and up-front with both the good and the bad news.

Cons

Inter-team and intra-team communication is often lacking, and there have been times when no one seems to want to stand up and own a system/device/process.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The "try-before-you-buy" sub-contracting setup can be quite frustrating to new hires and, often, good people are lost because of that frustration. At the same time, some direct hiring does seem to take place and isn't always "spot-on" for skill matches, personality matches, or other factors. There doesn't seem to be rhyme or reason why one person is hired directly while another is brought on as a sub-contractor in a "try-first" situation. I'd recommend that it be all or nothing with the hiring process--either everyone needs to be hired on from sub-contractor status, or hiring needs to be direct for all. I wouldn't call the current setup "discrimination", but certainly is lacking in effectiveness.

    Align with customer needs. Get out of your own way and make it easier to deliver solutions when customers are onboard.
