    I have been working at Electronic Data Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This company invented the IT Industry. Ross Perot founded EDS and the IT Industry back in 1962. EDS was the IT leader until they were acquired by HP in 2008.

    Cons

    EDS allowed HP to acquire them, and then HP proceeded to disassemble the EDS culture.

    Advice to Management

    Should have never allowed HP to purchase.

    Pros

    It was an honor to work with the people there. Very high caliber of competence, character, values, and camaraderie.

    Pension does NOT have a cost of living adjustment. It may sound good now, but with moderate economic inflation, your pension's payout will have little value in old age.
