    Pros

    EDS is great if there is a family problem and you need assistance. There are many instances where the company has helped a team member through a crisis.

    Cons

    Expectations that family will come second after work. Management has no problem with employees working nights, weekends, etc with no thought of the employees mental or physical health.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and plan better. Unahppy employees do not tend to perform well. Encouragement and appreciation goes a long way.

    Pros

    EDS seem to invest heavily in technology, facilities, structured training and education. There was ample opportunity to move to new roles in the company.

    Cons

    Often you get on a project that was setup for failure and then instead of adding resources to it they seem to just work people on the project to death.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get the dead wood out of the company and look for people that are solid workers and help them have life/work balance.

    Pros

    Opportunity for International Experience was a great plus.

    Cons

    One of the biggest concerns I had working at EDS was the fear of Layoff. EDS was known for doing workforce reductions.

    Advice to Management

    One of the things I would have offered if asked was that the Leaders at EDS try to move leaders slated for layoff into roles they may have had prior experience.
