    I worked at CSC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the best reasons that are good about CSC is that we were allowed or work from home. The CSC people I interacted with were supportive of each other.

    Cons

    Contract work. When the contract ended it is up to the employee to find another job within CSC during a certain time frame. If you are unable to find another job...get hired...then CSC lets you go.

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

    Pros

    They can provide a paycheck and some benefits.

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees whatsoever, from my perspective they are just a giant pimping organization; they get paid for the contracts that I work on and are not concerned with what I do. Aside from the usual benefits that any large technical company will provide you get nothing. No perqs.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as a valuable asset. Pay for additional education (not just for people in a degree program). Give more vacation time. Spend a little money on perqs. Act like a 21st century Silicon Valley company, not like a stodgy old white collar job shop.

    Pros

    Large organization, Lots of different opportunities. Currently going under restructuring on the commericial side of the house. New CEO is trying to remove $1 Billion out of the bottomline.

    Cons

    New processes are being developed based on all the different management change. Groups across CSC don't work well together because of how the revenue sharing is done.

    Advice to Management

    Fix it so it is easy that groups support one another.
