    Pros

    Great staff of people to work with. Many have been with the company a long time.

    Cons

    No salary increases in several years. Limited advancement opportunities. Ongoing layoffs. Not the place to be if you wish to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your current staff. Have more open, ongoing communication.

    Pros

    If you show initiative, you can go far in this company. I've worked in both sales and product management. The work life balance is far better than my last company.

    Cons

    The change over to the new CEO is causing chaos like I've never seen. His first quarterly call to the street, he committed to laying off 8% of the work force. True enough, there have been layoffs, as would be expected. But there has been zero communication as to if the layoffs are over, or if there are more to come. On top of that, there seems to be no communication on how these layoffs align to any change in direction for the company, or in fact, what the new direction is. No raises, ever. And very little bonus in the past two years.

    Advice to Management

    Be more communicative. Because of the way this layoff was handled, I know we have lost several very good people who left on their own. I myself am interviewing, and will continue to interview until I either get a new job, or am told that I am safe.

    Pros

    Decent (competitive) pay and benefits, Coworkers friendly, helpful. Get to interact with a lot of technically astute people.

    Cons

    The company is having difficulty finding new sources of revenue outside of its declining ClearPath mainframe business and outside of its traditional (mostly federal and state) customer set. Unisys brought in a new CEO in 2015 and he acted predictably by initiating a large layoff. Continued turmoil appears to be in the cards. There is no easy fix here.

    Advice to Management

    Dust off your resumes, the new CEO will continue to bring in his old cronies. I think he means to make drastic changes, part of that will entail blasting apart the existing culture.

    Pros

    Training program for moving up to new positions in corporate office Aggressive in pursuing work for contractors Provide tech and good support for off-site contractors Invites direct contributions from contractors at the work site to prep for re-compete proposals Good talk about placing contractors after contract ends (we'll see if there's more to it than just talk)

    Cons

    Routes communication through company site instead of broadcasting out to contractors in the field Obsessive about time-keeping, but lousy tools for keeping time

    Advice to Management

    Check out TSheets for time keeping; more incentives for mid-level supervisors to communicate to contractors, especially during re-compete times
