    I worked at CSC full-time

    Pros

    Middle management was great, empowering, caring and typically has your back. Positive is if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

    Cons

    The process at CSC is rigorous and daunting. The level of documentation and process steps are very lengthy. Yet much of the time it's due to being CMMI compliant. Little training, they have eliminated mentors so you are on your own to learn. If you're a seasoned technical professional you should be fine. You will hone your skills when it comes to process though.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to treat people like people. Set your employees up to succeed instead of fail, ensure you're creating / negotiating contracts to provide the funds your people need to provide good customer services to clients.

    I worked at CSC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Big company, good place for advancement. I was able to work on multiple accounts in positions that held my interest and were challenging.

    Cons

    Many times all CSC cared about was getting a warm body so they could bill. That would be great but some of your co-workers are horrible and caused more work.

    I worked at CSC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary but get it up front because no raises or bonuses or promotions

    Cons

    No care for the employees unless your billable, terrible benefits, forced vacation. If you finish a project you better hope you have another one or you are gone. The only focus is the return for investors and with no new work the only way to show growth was through lay offs

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your product and you wouldnt treat your computer as bad

    I have been working at CSC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here for 12 years. It used to be a great place, then ok place and now horrible place.

    Cons

    No growth, no skill development, no salary reviews, no one cares. No one rows this boat, and they are letting the billable resources keep it afloat.

    Advice to Management

    There is no one leading or managing this company. So there is no one to provide advice to. Advice to applicants is to run in the opposite direction.
