    I have been working at Unisys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent compared to what i understand some others have in the market, but not as good as they used to be thanks to healthcare reform. 401K, Medical, Life Insurance, Dental and eye-care are available. Good work at home structure / virtual for many resources today if you are one that finds yourself productive in that kind of environment. The company offers some upward mobility and opportunity if you push yourself and can get noticed. There are a lot of long tenured personnel with the company for 10+ and 25+ years, though that number seems to be getting smaller lately.

    Cons

    Lately there is been an lot of leadership changes with short notice on some of the big changes with little understanding of what the changes mean. Ongoing salary increases for many years have been low or non-existent. Can be easy to find yourself in a stagnant position if you are not careful. Most employees dislike the travel policies. Some positions require many hours and can be challenging to manage the work / life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and respect to employees, focus in better strategic directions and communicate how it is being done.
