I have been working at Unisys full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-Excellent remote connectivity makes for good work/life balance.
-Company has cut a lot of dead wood and streamlined many processes.
-Diverse and Talented co-workers
-Better than average starting salary

Cons

-Strong internal focus deters revenue growth
-Archaic corporate culture
-Ceaseless good old boy politics; not what you know but who you know
-Top heavy, ineffective senior management
-Must negotiate a great starting salary as increases are practically non-existent
-Constant cost cutting and layoffs; company has cut roughly 50% of jobs in the past 6 years except at the executive level

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Current CEO was hired to make the company viable again, no question that he succeeded. New leadership with proven skill in growing revenue is now needed. Until then the company remains in constant crisis mode, promoting no career growth for the average employee due to constantly changing (or non-existent) goals and objectives.

    Pros

    Cons

    Exec mgmt too internally focused rather than on the Customer needs. This is the primary reason for not winning new contracts.
    Lack of leadership direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To move the company forward, Need to reduce ineffective exec mgmt . Too much unnecessary, No added value mgmt. has resulted in non competitive rates.

    Pros

    Fantastic people, especially in the Federal division, loads of experience and cross-learning opportunities. There is much to be said for their legacy and what you can learn from it.

    Cons

    Complete management flux, lack of creativity and vision for growth. Still trying to hold onto the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of old dogs in the company, if you want to progress you will need to find new life blood in the ranks without destroying the network you have. A tough balance
