I have been working at Unisys full-time for 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.

    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.

    I worked at Unisys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The location (Boise) was nice, the customer was reasonable, the work was stimulating, and most of my co-workers were friendly, professional, and good to work with.

    Cons

    The turnover at the highest levels of the project management team was problematic, and there never seemed to be much, if any, support from the corporate level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unisys sold off this division of the company, so no advice would be relevant at this point.
