    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer
    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer

    I have been working at CSC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work timings, good transport facilities, sufficient onsite opportunities, excellent tools and processes in place to help with day to day activities.

    Cons

    Confusing and often dysfunctional management structure, lots of perks and employee benefits being curbed/consolidated with a view to cut overhead costs, very limited career growth opportunities within company, underwhelming hikes and bonuses, very limited opportunities for promotion due to internal politics

    Advice to Management

    Management structure needs to be simplified, higher ups need to be more responsive and communicative, company turn around needs to be 'because of' employees and not 'in spite of'.
