    Unisys is shrinking in size because of continues force reductions

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsUnisys has great talented people that work hard to make up for the continues force reductions. it has a good field services model.

    ConsNo new business/ revenue in IT, aging company that many are close to retirement. No merit increases or yearly bonuses for years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReorg the managements layer (the leadership overhead not the working bees). Provide leadership strategy bec Unisys lacked it for years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    learned a lot in six years, good company now in trouble

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGlobal footprint for doing business, excellent people that actually deliver quality service.

    Some good products with forward, stealth, Cloud management, Service Management ITSM

    ConsChallenging environment to grow business with embedded culture and current financials

    Old processes inhibit go to market speed with new services, not capability to commercially work
    with as a Service market, everything is custom solutions

    moved chairs around on sinking ship

    Advice to Senior Managementchange leadership, to much turnover of key people that turned around Unisys in previous years

    Way too political

    No investment in outside capabilities to grow business, just keeping lights on, no real raises in years

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not Too Bad

    IT Team Supervisor (Current Employee) Rochester, NY

    ProsI worked there for almost 10 years. There were a ton of positives and I was able to travel the world. Promotions were few and far between but it is a great place to be while continuing you education. You will normally be working with a great team of people at this company

    ConsThe pay was poor compaired to the tasks performed but you did get a ton of experience. Unisys has 2 seperate companies, UTS and Unisys. In the United States most call center employees are under UTS and have substandard pay and benefits. If you are looking for a job with Unisys and not UTS the benefits are much better.

    Worked there for over 20 years.

    Global Program Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Mission Viejo, CA

    ProsGood standards, good knowledgeable people.

    ConsLayoffs when the company grew too fast to 125,000 employees, now down to 23,000. Has been fairly steady for the last few years.

    Disproportionate expectations

    Break/Fix Technician (Current Employee) Dayton, OH

    Pros-I got to travel alot.
    -I learned how to fix fix various systems.
    -The tech that trained me was knowledgeable and friendly.

    ConsFor $10/hour I had to sign a release for my health and financial records.
    No time table was given for obtaining my certifications.
    Unisys terminated my employment in a week's time with no reason given.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor such a low salary, it's not worth giving out health and financial records to a corporation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Entry-Level IT

    Request Management Coordinator (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsUnisys offers a challenging environment that will keep you on your toes and not know what to expect from day to day

    ConsUnisys offers a challenging environment that will keep you on your toes and not know what to expect from day to day

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe biggest piece of advice I can give to Mgmt is you need to firm up your communication about things that directly impact employees. We're left 'interpreting' the Quarterly and Annual financial performance of the company and wondering if that will impact whether or not we're getting a raise and left to read the tea leaves. If we're not going to get a raise, just come out and say it. If we're going to get a raise, just come out and say it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
