    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great people in the organization, excluding the Sales team, despite all the layoffs. My manager was excellent, always shielding us from questionable and constantly changing management directives.

    Cons

    Went through countless rounds of layoffs over 13 years (and various positions) before I got my turn. They were always looming, and it created a dismal work environment. They would rarely invest in technology solutions, preferring to overload remaining employees to be the glue between disparate systems. I've heard they are continuing to thin the heard in the US, continuing to push for outsourcing to cut expenses. Short sighted moves that likely won't pay off.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the culture, stop all the layoffs and pay your staff market wages.

    I worked at CSC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really great people who work for the company. The work/life balance is good. Benefits are good; the company pays a nice portion of insurance. 401K. Good health incentive program.

    Cons

    Pay is not sufficient for the work that is required. Temporary employees make more money than full time employees. When a temp goes full time, the rate of pay decreases. High turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    It's time for a raise. Pay your employees. Great staff that is underpaid.
