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

    Pros

    Honestly, I can't think of any, All that was good about the company they've done away with starting in about 2008. They've offshored tens of thousands of American jobs.

    Cons

    Understaffed and underpaid. The expectation is that you do the work of 2-3 people and work 60+ hours a week. The benefits are terrible, and you get few if any raises.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that you get what you pay for. I ran a technical team of 10 and my offshore resources caused multiple production outages via simple and preventable human error. You off shored tens of thousands of American jobs and customer service and technical expertise when out the door as you replaced them with cheaper much less experienced workers. That is NOT a wholesale indictment of my off shore peers, there were some sharp guys and gals.
