    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.

    I worked at CSC (Less than a year)

    As a billing accountant I worked with a good team. The work was very basic, but well organized. Easy if you'd like a mindless job where you can listen to music all day.

    Cons

    Did not feel like I was contributing to the company, management didn't care.

    Advice to Management

    try to be more personal.

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

    Pros

    I was able to move around the company to get experience on several contracts. Good experience.

    Cons

    In 2013, CSC had an abysmally low win rate on new and recompete contract awards. That left many of us hanging in the wind and eventually going on unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on winning contracts. Keep your best people. Find them jobs when their contract expires.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity but due to continuous reductions in force difficult to realize
