slow to change

Sales Executive (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Unisys full-time for more than 10 years

Prosit's easy to be attracted by the talented people that work at Unisys, the customers they already have and the work environment

Consslow to change course, not staying relavent to customers, depending on legacy tech and relationships to survive

Advice to Senior Managementbeware of sunk cost syndrome... just because you have started down on track, doesn't mean you have to follow at any cost (to customers, employees, and profits).

A company looking for its place in the market

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Unisys full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBrilliant Engineers
Unique and innovative product offerings
Excellent internal solution platform to support sales, marketing and practitioners
Financially costs are managed well

ConsStuck in the past
Large population of employees can retire at any time
Automated all internal processes and pushed all the work on to the employees taking away focus on the market
So far has failed to fix the sales force and their abilities to achieve quota

Advice to Senior ManagementMake a decision as to what kind of company do they want to be -- a people based services company or a technology based product company. All the investment goes to product, very little for the people based services, although highly dependent on people based revenue stream to maintain its size.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
