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

    Pros

    Was great company to work for at one time....

    Cons

    Down sizing and outsourcing to India....34 years with 8 weeks severance. Money hungry and not looking out for the employees as a whole.

    Pros

    There are some great mid-level managers who genuinely care about professional development.

    Cons

    This is a huge company, and individuals are treated as a cog in the machine. When I was there, the annual review process took months to undertake and at the end, you were reviewed by a panel that never spoke to you as an employee - you had a "coach" who would represent you at this panel. I had a great coach... but some of my colleagues had coaches with 5+ coachees and barely took the time to get to know the individual, let alone have the ability to adequately endorse them for a promotion or raise. Several of my colleagues didn't even get a COL pay increase after years of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to start caring more about employees and less about profits.

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

    Pros

    Depending on which group/account you work for, the solution to the customer can be interesting work. It is still a big company so if you know how to network internally, some room to move around.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and culture at the Corporate and management level. This is not an employee friendly environment. Focused on bottom line.
