    I have been working at Unisys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible Work Hours, great people, culturally diverse, ability to grow/expand role. I always feel valued and that my voice is heard and opinions considered. I've not encountered that in many previous companies. Majority of the team is professional, works hard, and thinks outside the box to accomplish the goals.

    Cons

    New hires are not always effectively vetted in the interview process causing work delays and residual issues - in a fast paced project, there is not time for this. Some employees with significant tenure (15+ years) are stuck in their old ways and not flexible to learning better methodology or streamlined processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish effective interviewing and candidate selection methodology to procure the right candidates the first time.

    Pros

    You do Learn to work on almost every Dell computer Made that is currently under warranty. It is a great starter Job for someone that has either Just completed College or Just taken there A+. In the Midwest Area You Probably have the Best Resource Manager Unisys Has By the Name Of Matthew C Vassar

    Cons

    Low Pay for what is expected of You, A Lot or ware & Tear on Your Personal Vehicle. You also receive a lot of abuse from customers who's Dell systems you support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the Hourly wage for Full time Employees at least to the same Rate as some Contract Employees who make More than the Full time Employee The Rate should be at least in the 18Hr or Higher Bracket. Use US or Canadian Personnel For Dell support In North America Instead Of Foreign employees from either India or the Philippians

    I worked at Unisys (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Microsoft on behalf of Unisys, so I can't really say anything about its office culture because I have never been there, but Microsoft was great.

    Cons

    I got laid off on 9/5/2014.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When management wants to lay off an employee, they should give the employee a notice period so the employee would at least gets prepared for that moment , instead of telling them that you are laid off on the same day. Pack up your stuff and leave !!!!!!

    Pros

    Good company, but got messed up in merger with Sperry.

    Cons

    Take 2 $3.5 B companies with 15,000 employees and wind up with one $3.5 Billion company with 7,500 employees. Lost half the work force and have the revenues, thus losing a lot of customers. Dumb, greedy management on both companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think thru the mergers in the future because this one is a failure

    I have been working at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    The work environment is excellent - so much to learn about networking. They'll bring in people who may not have the most experience because they'll accept a lower starting rate - it's how the contact is structured. It's not the company's fault, and the education and exposure makes you more profitable for your next career. The company is understanding and leaves you alone as long as you do your job. Great starter job / 2nd job.

    Cons

    Salary is low after 2-3 years of working here, and due to the structure of our contract, bonuses and raises are slim to never.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make employees feel more important - then you won't have so many leave to get higher paying jobs.
