    Pros

    Good people - flexible schedules - team atmosphere

    Cons

    No raises - ever. Benefits getting expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider your roadmap - don't try to make something that isn't working, work.

    Pros

    I liked the team that I worked on which was Unisys Team Chicago. We served as the Outsourced IT Solutions Team for all of the City of Chicago Employees and facilities. I had the privilege of working with some of the High Profile staff at the City. I was primarily remote from the main office, but got to go to the office whenever needed. I used those times to talk to some of the other Remote, LAN, R&D, Unix, and WAN engineers. I also formed great relationships with management and even adopted a member of the management staff as a mentor during my time there. Ed Tyson has passed away unfortunately, but what he's taught me has manifested into a great career in IT. There was plenty opportunity to advance ones career on the Chicago Team, acquire reimbursed certifications, hands on opportunity, and enterprise wide knowledge of IT and IT infrastructure. The position was contract with a guaranteed 40hrs/week.

    Cons

    Management then didn't know how to communicate effectively with the team/employees. They did their best to convey the urgency of certain issues, but it sometimes wasn't well received in the manner it was delivered. This may have very well changed as of this moment as I'm writing this, but I feel it's an opportunity to bring to light some issues that can help boost morale and speak up to management as some employee's may not feel comfortable. Some of the smaller contracting companies that the employee's come from may also practice unfair processes and the contracting employee may feel stuck and that there isn't a way for anything to get better for their situation while on the project contracting.

    Pros

    They are always willing to help out when it comes to time off or changing schedules.

    Cons

    The management don't seem to care about you. You are a body at the phone and that's all they care about. If you end up doing poorly, they will fire you and fill your seat with someone that's been waiting for months.

    You eat what you kill, if you are not in the business of generating business then this would not be for you.

    Increase Marketing

    Pros

    If you're looking for an opportunity to get into the IT field and pile on experience, this is the place.

    Cons

    Stagnation, lack of raises, dwindling benefits, increasing cost of benefits. Dwindling travel allowances.

    Advice to Management

    In this day and age, tightening the belts are a requirement in order to move forward but doing so at the cost of employee morale is not a way forward.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, mostly nice co-workers, low-level management is good

    Cons

    New CEO might not have a clue, recent big layoffs in engineering have left everything short-handed

    Advice to Management

    Tell us what the new direction is supposed to be -- "just keep doing what you're doing" isn't cutting it

    Fair, open and cooperative colleagues

    Cons

    As a vendor trying to manage an infrastructure it is difficult at times to provide best practices when the client does not understand the big picture

    Advice to Management

    Keep pressing your belief

    Pros

    The Unisys That Was was a great place to work for me and many others, so I and others stayed there many years. Most of my managers were really good. Very flexible work environment.

    Cons

    The Unisys That Is is going through wrenching change. No longer a stable place to work. The Fear is back and will be there for some time. A really good place to get experience if you are just starting out. CEO too new to rate.

    Advice to Management

    Transferring work to cheaper, much lower-productivity labor is a huge risk. In the long run, you get what you pay for.

    Pros

    Large, stable company. Well known name recognition. Strong global presence with well placed data center for hosted solutions and data security.

    Cons

    Reduced sales comp plans by 40 percent in 2015. 20 percent employee reduction expected in 2015. Company is still trying to figure out what markets to go after.

    Advice to Management

    Show a better appreciation for sales people and invest more in good pre sales engineers.
