    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.

    Pros

    It's a multicultural environment with very good program management and devoted colleagues. Lots of training available for those who want to expand their abilities and tuition reimbursement is flawless.

    Cons

    The overall company has historically not given increases for the past 5 years. So if not Mgmt, don't expect much. The Finance Mgmt leads much to desire when it comes to work life balance and micromanaged Mgmt style. Other departmental areas seem to not have the same impact on their employees. Telecommuting is discretionary depending on department, do as I say, not as I do type of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook the knowledge base and learn to appreciate those

    Pros

    Portfolio is now focused and growth potential is hightened. Because of the environment exceptional teaming is demonstrated.

    Cons

    Management and mindset shifts hinder progress. Lack of flexible work options for those near Unisys sites really impinged morale. The Company does not support work/life balance any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow innovation - Hold people accountable and trust them more; reintroduce flexible work solutions

    Bad upper management, horrible communication and very slow progress on product development. Marketing is a joke.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance and benefits. Responsive IT help desk and support. Peers at your level are supportive.

    Cons

    Dinosaur sales staff has no confidence in new products and solutions being developed. It is a challenge to internally sell anything. Marketing needs an over haul starting at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together, there is a reason why revenues have steadily fallen for a decade. Be supportive and factor in what employees suggest in the field.

    Its a great place to get your foot in the door starting in the IT field, the pay was very decent and they were very patient with the training. I had all the tools I needed to help clients and increase my own knowledge.

    Cons

    Call center environment can be unpleasant, but that is the nature of the position. Management seemed a little detached
