      Good people, being able to help people, Benefits are ok.

      No raises of any kind for anyone, in order to get a raise you have to quit and reapply, company seems to keep splitting or merging creating an uncertain environment.

      Pros

      Interaction with the client (rare, but possible).

      Cons

      Marlton is a nightmare. 65 hrs a wk, Do not allow employees to fly home on the weekend because behind deadlines. You either like it or you are gone.. The work-life balance is a joke. No raises. Being told " you better get your head down and continue to test....". Hanging on as long as they pay my salary. All the C3 website stuff is a joke. For example, I am sure glad such and such untouchable millionaire is smiling, while the rest of us are humping 65 hrs plus a wk to pay for him. Just saw my friend "roll off" EG fired who is a full time employee while sub contractors were kept on n his position. One final statement. Paid training is non-existent. And in the scant chance you are lucky enough to acquire it, you will fall behind the unrealistic 90% utilization rate to even meet expectations on your annual review. That being said, with paid holidays and forced vacation, if you get sick for more than a couple days a yr, you will be in the partially meets expectation rating (no raise, remedial work on top of 65 hrs per wk), while the CEO enjoys 22 million a yr. PS. read up on their "CLEAR values nonsense". Had I said enough?

      Pros

      You get to work with some very bright folks and you have an opportunity to learn from your teammates if you so choose to. On our account you do have the ability to work flexible hours which takes a little stress out of the job. It does have the potential to be very good place to work.

      Cons

      I can’t speak for the organization as a whole but on the account I work on, it is amazing the company stays in business. There is a total lack of communications between departments and management. Penny wise and dollar foolish It seems management thinks training is a disease Customer has a total lack of respect for us and I believe it’s the result of management making unrealistic promises to the customer without thinking it through. CSC has tendency to expedite major changes to meet a schedule rather than doing it right. Example the POD scheme Reviews are designed not to be truthful but to minimize raises or remove folks There is no accountability for employees or management You have to question the integrity of the company given the multiple ethical issues we seen recently. Including the nearly 200 million dollar fine for fraud by the SEC. (and they make us take ethical training- go figure) It is under staffed to the point of insanity. In the years I’ve been, for most folks here there has never been a reasonable raise and at times no raises. I think that’s enough for now. No wonder we all luv the place.

      Overall a bad actor as employer

      Apr 10, 2013 - Senior Project Manager

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Can sometimes find good projects, but it is often very uncertain if you can get the resources to do the project at critical junctures Also, it has become very difficult to correct or negotiate improperly funded, badly-scoped projects Formerly was able to create or revise SOWs for projects and mitigate or prevent these issues, but no more

      Cons

      Good for the entrenched drones--do as you're told, they prefer people who are scared. Business model assumptions of contract profitability are not grounded in reality--again and again and again. Mythical Operating Income targets based invalid assumptions of smooth processes and resource costs. They keep throwing their employees under the bus. Huge layoffs of critical resources. I think most of their accounts will go red. Employees are pawns and used to get the balance sheet results they want -- no raises, layoffs, forced furloughs and employees now pay much high health care premiums--Huge reduction in overall compensation package. Some very nice and competent people here and there.

      Large company that is not innovative

      Jul 20, 2014 - Software Engineer in Washington, DC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I have found that the one positive attribute of CSC is that they offer salaries that align with the industry standard. Because CSC is a global company, its workforce is located in many different places. Thus, each employees' experience will differ. I am speaking from the point of view of the US mid-atlantic market which relies heavily on federal government contracting.

      Cons

      - You get lost in the shuffle because the company is so large. It is impossible to be promoted, recognized or grow with the type of structure and size of the company. - As a technologist, CSC is completely not innovative. In fact, they do not encourage a community of innovation and they do not invest in their employees. As a result, many technologists with current or cutting-edge skills have left or are considering leaving to pursue more interesting positions. - The benefits are decreasing. Over the past three years that I have been employed with CSC, major benefits were removed or reduced as cost cutting measures (one time CSC 401K contribution at the end of year, health costs increase; penalties if including spouse, mandatory end-of-year shut down where you use your own vacation, no raises in 2014, etc). Of course, a company needs to survive; however, such a severe and rapid reduction in benefits has severely decreased morale.

      Straight downhill

      Jul 23, 2014 - Program Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The only good reason to work at CSC is that it is a job and that alone is of value in this economy. Individual groups of people are talented and some great teams, fewer all the time because of employee unfriendly corporate policies.

      Cons

      Everything CSC has done since it's massive, poorly communicated, badly mismanaged reorganization in 2012 (the one that cut out 40% of managers by overloading the remaining managers - many people still don't know who they work for) has been detrimental to and at the expense of employees. Massive waves of RIFS - some even while people are traveling on business trips with clients, continually decreasing benefits, abhorrent new forced vacation policy, inability to carry vacation over from year to year, forced performance ranking which arbitrarily downgraded most employees below their true performance level, no raises even for high performing employees with very few exceptions, abysmal internal management and unbelievably bad communication and rollout of changes. Back office systems in a shambles. I wonder how we pass audits. We can't hire because headhunters steer people away from CSC. All of this has been planned by senior management to increase operating income and increase share prices. None of it is sustainable. It is a serious mess, folks. Stay away.

      No loyalty from above - all focused on meeting numbers at any cost

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Working from home which is both good and bad, as although convenient they expect 24/7 support because of it for vast majority of roles

      Cons

      Constant cutting of workforce to meet Wall St expectations. Clients migrating from mega deals of the past resulting in smaller deals if any going forward. No raises 3 years, forced vacations, medical and vacation benefits being cut for current and future employees, and any bonuses a thing of the past for all but C-level. Treat you like a number vs showing commitment to employees. Strategy is all on making the numbers work, regardless of impact to employees or supported customers. Workers feel the pain, and customers don't renew because they sense out cutest al costs bs any sort of commitment. Managent says bear with them as will be better in long run, but after several years of nothing but cuts with no rewards, hard to stay committed.

      Pros

      Great company to work for in the first half of career. Reasonable salary with opportunities to grow and move up the chain. Originally raises and bonuses were in play for those performing at or above expectations.

      Cons

      Since current CEO took over the employee satisfaction and appreciation has taken a dive. Multiple reductions in force and elimination of employee benefits has reduced the work force to just trying to hang on. Most of remaining work force has nothing to look forward too - no raises, growth opportunities, or bonuses.....except for those at the top of the food chain....
