    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent compensation, although only because it carried over when we were outsourced to them. They did technology well.

    Cons

    Always cutting staff, which made for tense work environment. Had to lay off 2 folks before getting the same treatment 3+ months later. By that time, it was part of HP, so they bear equal (if not more) "blame" for that environment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on putting a good product at a fair price on the field.
