    I have been working at Unisys as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    OK in all departments. Can do better when it comes to treating their employees.

    Cons

    Salaries are low, not market standards.
    Management is rigid, not open for newer technologies. Need to open eyes and let young and fresh minds take over.
    Brown noser will of-course move fast upwards and go places.
    Executives are fearful and insecure of their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to open eyes and let young and fresh minds take over.
    Let bright ideas come in and let people be creative.

    I worked at Unisys full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    --Unisys is a large global company with many oppourtunities, as long as relocation was an option.
    --One of the few companies that offer a pension and 401k retirement options.
    --Unisys makes available needed training.

    Cons

    --They are considered an outsourcing provider, or at least the division I worked for, but in reality it was nothing more than taking a cut of profit for staffing us there, just like any other contractor.
    --You are at the mercy of the parent hiring company you work for. This position was with Eli Lilly & Co.
    --Contractors are not treated all that well at Lilly, in fact some managers let it be known that you can be gone in '3 clicks and a few keystrokes' LOL, so if you are hired by Unisys to work at Lilly, work here at your own risk.

    Pros

    Better than no job at all...I suppose.

    Cons

    Pay is low, Hours are never certain,no management. Some people think a job like this would open the doors for them in terms of experience, it doesn't. Dealing with hardware only is the start up of a dead end job/career.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, Good HR Practices, Initial Compensation offered is good as per industry standard.

    Cons

    Old and myopic management who have lost track of what is happening around and where the industry is heading ! Negative politics and resistance towards outsourcing which leads to cost inflation and subsequently looses grounds to the other players in the industry who substantially outsources work to offer a very competitive price to it's clientele. Marketing style is that of the mid-80's. Employees are not trained on new stuff, especially when the industry is going through lot of paradigm shifts. Creativity and new ideas are seldom awarded and adopted !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes , adapt or perish !!

    Pros

    Flexible Hours. As long as you get the job done management usually doesn't contact you.

    Cons

    Worked in VA for Unisys as a field tech for a couple years in VA. Was asked if I wanted to move to Albany, NY because they needed help in the area. I agreed and moved from a stable position in VA. Got to Albany and was lucky to get 15 hours a week. Management kept promising an upturn in call volume so I didn't seek other work. I was laid off shortly after that. No moving expenses reimbursed, just a pile of debt. Thanks Unisys, you're swell.
