CSC – Why Work For Us?

Work side-by-side with some of the world’s smartest people

CSC has been pioneering, exploring and innovating for more than 50 years. Founded in 1959 by two young computer programmers, we first made a name for ourselves writing system software for every major U.S. computer manufacturer. As technology has changed, our focus on hiring the smartest people has remained steadfast.

People who:

  • Designed the flight software to repair the Hubble telescope
  • Built Europe’s first ATM
  • Created the first ground traffic system for New York’s JFK airport
  • Lead the IT transformation of the UK’s National Health Service

Thinkers who are excited to roll up their sleeves and solve. Doers who know the value of imagination. Dreamers who don’t believe in saying “no” to any challenge.

The types of people who work side-by-side with clients to deliver results that drive technology and business innovation. From the mines of Australia, to a data center in Delaware, to the railways of France, our teams are always leaning forward in business and IT.

Continuous Learning

We empower our employees to broaden their skill sets and acquire the know-how to thrive in their chosen career paths. CSC has invested in an extensive range of learning opportunities that can help you develop your technical abilities, core competencies and soft skills. These include professional certification programs, education assistance, mentoring and online learning.


Our teams are built on collaboration and trust. We believe in our employees, and encourage them to reach out and connect with like-minded people, from across the hallway or across the globe. Our annual technology conference invites our ingenious minds to spend four days learning from each other and sharing experiences at a global scale. And every day, we use the latest collaboration technologies to connect people virtually.

    Help Desk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Norwich, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at CSC (Norwich, CT).


    For Level 1 Help Desk positions the interview was very easy at the time. I believe it is more so now that some of the previous requirements may have been removed.
