    I worked at CSC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was able to work from home, which was nice.

    Cons

    Constantly shifting jobs (F&A) to India, refused to replace natural attrition, and implemented company-wide systems and process changes without fully understanding the current systems and processes, or properly training the folks who would have to operate under the new regime. They do not invest in new products, but attempt to drive the stock price via cost cutting and financial engineering.

    Pros

    You can stay forever with minimal efforts.
    Life is relaxing in support specific projects here.
    Heaven for managers.

    Cons

    Low salary
    No hike
    No promotion
    going 1 level above will waste your 5-6 years
    No growth opportunities
    Minimum stability
    small small project contracts will make your life completely unstable

    Advice to Management

    Kindly focus on your key employees & promote them to retain with you. Timely promotion or salary hikes can lure them to stay but unfortunately none of this is being focused currently except acquisitions or migrations. I would strongly ask CSC management to focus on there employees else you will lose your true dignity.
