    Pros

    Excellent health plan and good benefits. Very large company with a lot of internet features that people can find attractive.

    Cons

    The company is hard to move up, or get more responsibility. They seem to like you and keep you in one place with no advancement.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    A few great contracts, dedicated co workers and happy clients

    Cons

    service delivery continues to be conpromised by poor management decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on service delivery on the very few contracts that remain, rather than continuing to improve profit margins if want to continue in business. Focus on customer satisfaction vice internal corporate measures. Focus the Rentention of the employees that are serving your clients and generating revenue for the company on a daily basis. Execute a sales strategy that aligns with the priorities of the Federal marketplace. Recognize top achievers and exit out non performers. This would prevent the need for yearly lay offs.

    Pros

    None now; was great before the new CEO

    Cons

    Engineering organization RIF'd ~30% of their most senior, qualified employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep talent. Also be upfront and honest about what is happening. I knew about the RIF but others didn't... lots of tears and anger

    Pros

    Great way to get your feet wet, lots of opportunity for exposure to many different technologies. Good education options and certification training.

    Cons

    No upward growth options within Unisys Technical Services. No monetary raise in several years of outstanding service with the company. Constantly told they have no money, and they are quick to downsize to save even more of that money they don't have. Direct management was clueless, and the amount of red tape they need to cut through to get anything done is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to get to know your employees. We are not just numbers on a service delivery spreadsheet. When you recruit make sure you tell potential techs the truth instead of feeding them lies about a bonus structure that will never be implemented, and performance reviews that mean nothing at all.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment. The company seems to also be acquiring many new contracts.

    Cons

    VERY poor with giving raises. Benefits in UTS are horrible. No 401k and standard single person deductible is 1500.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about methods to retain employees that will continue to help the company, and weed out the employees that just serve as fillers.
