    One of the best companies to retire but not a company to catapult your career to the next level

    Solutions Architect (Current Employee) Reston, VA

    ProsFlexible work environment, Good HR Practices, Initial Compensation offered is good as per industry standard.

    ConsOld and myopic management who have lost track of what is happening around and where the industry is heading ! Negative politics and resistance towards outsourcing which leads to cost inflation and subsequently looses grounds to the other players in the industry who substantially outsources work to offer a very competitive price to it's clientele. Marketing style is that of the mid-80's. Employees are not trained on new stuff, especially when the industry is going through lot of paradigm shifts. Creativity and new ideas are seldom awarded and adopted !

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes , adapt or perish !!

    Eh, could be better, but overall just an Okay company to work for.

    Support Analyst (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    Pros--Unisys is a large global company with many oppourtunities, as long as relocation was an option.
    --One of the few companies that offer a pension and 401k retirement options.
    --Unisys makes available needed training.

    Cons--They are considered an outsourcing provider, or at least the division I worked for, but in reality it was nothing more than taking a cut of profit for staffing us there, just like any other contractor.
    --You are at the mercy of the parent hiring company you work for. This position was with Eli Lilly & Co.
    --Contractors are not treated all that well at Lilly, in fact some managers let it be known that you can be gone in '3 clicks and a few keystrokes' LOL, so if you are hired by Unisys to work at Lilly, work here at your own risk.

    Great experience for s short term

    Customer Engineer 6 (Former Employee) San Juan, PR

    ProsMany experience in different fields within Customer Engineering.

    ConsUnfortunate there wasn't any change within salary wise even if you cover so many side positions within the same company. And if you try to add to a resume It can be confusing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you switch an employ from one field to another you should consider giving them the option of returning.

    Limited Growth opportunities when in middle management.

    Network Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsStable (Generally) if you do a decent job.
    Ability to work remotely for most clients.
    For most middle career positions you are given tasks or clients and left alone.
    Because of telework model, easy to move around personally...meaning you can live anywhere.

    ConsLimited advancement opportunities
    Draconian and repeated cost cutting efforts make raises and merit bonuses non-existent.
    Low capture rate for new business...limits movement options internally.
    Difficult to get training or education reimbursement.

    It is not a place I would work long term

    DC Consolidation PM (Current Employee) Thousand Oaks, CA

    ProsQuick hire, no hire decisions. Somewhat flexible on hours, although the workload makes it difficult to work a less than 45-50 hours a week.

    ConsWorking at the client site, so it is a subpar working environment

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your people...make sure they have the tools and the proper working environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
