    I worked at Unisys full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work was enjoyable and the client side teams were great.

    Cons

    There was very little movement between business units and like most contractors, very little time on the bench.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would behoove the account executives to work on building career plans for their team members rather than dropping them on a contract and forgetting about them until it is time for a recompete.

    I worked at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    None that i can think of

    Cons

    Mgmt lies, benefits worst in the industry, very disorganized, and give employees no options but to leave

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only been w this company for a month (they won a govt contract) and they are unbelievably bad. First they lost a bunch of my coworkers' intake forms that had their ss# on them, then lied when asked what happened. They didn't send some people's paychecks on time and others were wrong (and no direct deposit in over a month), benefits a total ripoff ($3,000 deductible!), and we had to drive to their hq and were forced to sit through 3 agonizing, boring and self-promoting hours of what they call 'orientation'. They also didn't answer any meaningful questions (about paychecks and benefits, for one) - they just sat up there and bragged. So unnecessary and wasteful.
    They might have won the contract, but they lost the staff's faith and trust. Lots of good people leaving when all they hoped for was respect and honesty.

    Cons

    Frequent week-end work on short-notice

    Be upfront about week-ends requirements when hiring, since some people don't mind as long as they can plan adequately

    I have been working at Unisys

    Pros

    I'm still thinking about an answer.

    Cons

    The culture is changing such that citizens are being allowed to be discriminated against and there's nothing that seems to be able to be done. They think that experience in one technology or one language deserves a senior position. The up and coming culture only trusts the members of their culture and they WILL gang up and lie. And the courtesies about not speaking foreign languages in a business environment, out the window.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become a people company or go the way of WorldCOM and many others.
