    I have been working at Unisys full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You may be placed on a customer site who has challenging projects and problems to solve. The 401K plan is ok, but you need to sell the Unisys stock as soon as they give it to you. Otherwise it will depreciate quickly.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, Archaic and lacks long term vision. The company seems content with it's elderly state and is approaching it's retirement age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the younger, experienced and brighter employees. Stealth and Clear-path are no technologies to stake the claim on.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work and the people. Compensation was in line with market. Lot of experience and expertise you could call on.

    Cons

    Not well know in the market place and company was (still is) in general decline. Opportunities for growth were limited and shrinking.

    I worked at Unisys full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work was enjoyable and the client side teams were great.

    Cons

    There was very little movement between business units and like most contractors, very little time on the bench.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would behoove the account executives to work on building career plans for their team members rather than dropping them on a contract and forgetting about them until it is time for a recompete.

    I have been working at Unisys

    Pros

    It depends on the organization's management that you might be a part of but generally at my location your work schedule is VERY flexible. That's a big plus for some. But the pay is mediocre at best. This seems to be universal at this location. Benefits corporate-wide are on par with other corporations of this size in my opinion.

    Cons

    The pay is mediocre at best. This seems to be universal at this location. Benefits corporate-wide are on par with other corporations of this size in my opinion. Workforce age at this location is way far above what it should be due to lack of attrition. Most here are just trying to get to retirement to collect their pension from long ago (pension accrual is no more). Therefore culture-wise it is lacking in motivation and creativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees. Be an employer of choice. Bring in more young engineers. Attract more youths with your aging products by being more involved with emerging trends.

    No Issues with Unisys

    I worked at Unisys full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of self-training is available on a variety of topics to help your growth potential for career advancement.

    Cons

    Once your contract ends with one project there doesn't seem to be any real effort to find you an additional project so you may potentially end up laid-off.

    Pros

    -Great co-workers that "pulled and rowed" together to get the job done
    -Personable manager
    -Client Interaction
    -Leadership opportunities

    Cons

    Frequent week-end work on short-notice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront about week-ends requirements when hiring, since some people don't mind as long as they can plan adequately

    Pros

    Hours have been very flexible, co-workers are enjoyable and kind.

    Cons

    Boring work. Unable to progress out of the grind. You are expected to maintain the slow downward spiral and earn a paycheck. Large management structure that is nothing more than a retirement community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some people who want to work before you retire.
