    Pros

    Great co-workers and try to have a fun atmosphere. They supply the equipment and stuff to perform your job. A nice place to meet new friends.

    Cons

    Management and training is horrible, benefits are no good and actually would save money not having them. There is a lot of pressure to keep within the SLA's and there are a lot of mistakes made. When mistakes are made to obtain the stats, ticket quality is out the door. When callers call back in for complaints, the management does not do anything as most of the complaints are from management favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better balance to train employees as there are employees who only in 1 queue making the same money as a person in 5 queue's. The workload and compensation is horrendous.

    Pros

    Many experience in different fields within Customer Engineering.

    Cons

    Unfortunate there wasn't any change within salary wise even if you cover so many side positions within the same company. And if you try to add to a resume It can be confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you switch an employ from one field to another you should consider giving them the option of returning.

    Pros

    Stable (Generally) if you do a decent job.
    Ability to work remotely for most clients.
    For most middle career positions you are given tasks or clients and left alone.
    Because of telework model, easy to move around personally...meaning you can live anywhere.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities
    Draconian and repeated cost cutting efforts make raises and merit bonuses non-existent.
    Low capture rate for new business...limits movement options internally.
    Difficult to get training or education reimbursement.

    Former Employee - Director
    Former Employee - Director

    Pros

    -Generally offer a good starting salary, but raises are nonexistent in the US.

    -They provide good office technology, mobile access, etc, but do not encourage a flexible workplace.

    -Strong presence globally provides the opportunity to work on international projects.

    -Appears to be a good place to work if you live in India.

    Cons

    I really hated working here:

    -Abysmal senior leadership! Greedy glorified bean counters, yes men and colleagues of the CEO who think they can grow the company by continuous budget cuts, layoffs and offshoring.

    -Disastrous recruitment. Anyone who talks a good story and rambles off meaningless buzz-words is IN. Management is completely threatened by those who can produce actual results. Recent grads: your inexperience and low salary requirements are welcome here.

    -Merit increases are not even addressed by management in the US. There are no raises but they are generally quick to counter when you give notice. Don't fall for it, the industry is too dynamic to waste you time at Unisys.

    -Offers a portfolio of mostly dated solutions to a market that considers the company irrelevant to begin with.

    -Depressing workplace with a corporate culture straight out of Dilbert cartoon.

    -Zero employee appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the Board of Directors: You have a leadership crisis. Bring in an executive team who knows how to grow sales and innovation within the company.

    Working at the client site, so it is a subpar working environment
