    Pros

    None at the time. to be continued.........

    Cons

    Company been in town since Dec 2014 and already got bad rep.
    Job was not what was explained by recruiters. Was lied to about the position applied for
    People hired after you are getting the position you were promised. They tell you no more open slots but every week someone hired after you are getting the position promised. Question management about it, and they tell you to be patient.
    Extremely poor training.
    People quitting daily because of misrepresenting the job.
    Management will not be straight and honest with people.
    All management care about is meeting the needs of the contract.
    No employee loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees reassurance about what's happening. Set the tone for the future.

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

    Pros

    Unisys is a very customer-focused organization and that is its niche in the outsourcing industry. It has the agility to quickly respond without a lot of bureaucracy There is a family feel when you work at an office location. Unisys also offers many home-based positions with flexible hours. My management has been very supportive of family priorities when they arise. I have had the opportunity to advance, holding 4 positions of increasing responsibility over 7 years.

    Cons

    Unisys does not demonstrate the process discipline that you would expect from a service provider. There is a tendency to underestimate and understaff the resources needed for a project to contain cost, and when the project goes red, you can have all the resources you need, but the damage is done at that point. Unisys has also been challenged to manage effectively within a matrixed tower structure. This has had a negative impact on morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Right-size project staff at the start. Don't undercut staffing to win a deal. Reorganize with a vision and a plan that is communicated to the team. It appears we are restructuring frequently like a "flavor of the week". Require timecard approvals for all staff regardless of role. Unisys seems to go through stages of poaching leadership from other companies. Make your own identity rather than recreating another company's culture. Changes to the performance review process have taken away incentive to top-perform (less categories of performance, and rules around percentages of top achievers and non-performers). Not every team has non-performers.
