    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.

    I have been working at Electronic Data Systems (More than 8 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Electronic Data Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I think people need to really take a hard and honest look at themselves

    Cons

    I would definitely not do this again if I had the choice.

    Advice to Management

    This is always a tricky question to answer. Basically, the interviewer wants to get a sense of how you deal with conflict when it arises

    Pros

    There are many good people and we have a lot of fun working together. There are plenty of opportunities to work on complex projects that challenge you and allow you to grow.

    Cons

    Being such a large company, it can take a while to get things done and projects approved. Also, can take a while for a new employee to find their way in such a large organization.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to better identify employees motivations and capabilities. Look to identify the high-performers early and leverage this faster so they don't get lost in the masses, potentially losing them to another company.
