    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The salary is competitive, benefits are reasonable. The call center does allow for flexible schedules such as four 10 hour days.

    Cons

    The management of the call center was terrible - you were always presumed to be at fault if anything happened and everyone was always afraid that you would be laid off. It wasn't a pleasant atmosphere to work in always afraid for your job.

    Advice to Management

    Coaching should always be balanced with recognition of when someone does something good as well as being more proactive in creating a good working relationship with the employees. No one should ever fear for their job for one mistake.

    Pros

    Good place for getting training for new skill set

    Cons

    Compensation for your skill set is inadequate

    Advice to Management

    Be open to employees regarding how much of bonus is allocated to each business group, employees on the floor usually hear of bonuses but they do not actually get any.

    Pros

    You had a flexible work schedule and the environment was clean to work in. There was also an onsight cafeteria which is definitely a plus.

    Cons

    Management seemed clueless at times as to the actual job you were doing. It was amazing that these people were going to evaluate your performance and yet had no experience as to the job you were doing. SIMPLY AMAZING!!!

    Advice to Management

    The lack of communication was definitely a big problem. Also, there seemed to be a lack of standardization for processing procedures. There needs to be a training program other than on the job training fly by the seat of your pants training.

    Pros

    Excellent health insurance options, credit union membership

    Cons

    There was an awful lot of gossip regarding many of the females in the department while I was at EDS. It seemed as if almost every woman was rumored to be fast until she could somehow prove otherwise. I remember one woman who joined from another department said to me, "You've probably heard a lot of rumors about me." I replied, "I make up my own mind about people." She was grateful for that.

    Pros

    Probably, training opportunities were better than most companies. My expereince with job reviews is that it was a waste of my time.

    Cons

    Unrealistic demands on working environment. EDS management would sign contracts that a sane person would run away from. Maybe with HP management things may change.

    Advice to Management

    EDS/HPmanagement should sit down and work with the technicians that are expected to do the job. This would give EDS/HP management a realistic idea if the terms of the contract are doable.
