    Pros

    Dynamic Industry and fast changing industry. We have the benefit of transforming companies not just running their IT shops. As a result of the breadth and depth of EDS, we get to see many innovations implemented. Then we are able to share those experiences across industries adding value to each client.
    Great People with incredible dedication to serving our clients in an excellent manner.
    Ability to experience a wide range of IT areas and a wide range of industries without leaving the company. There is always a challenge and opportunity for those who want to make a difference to capitalize on it.

    Cons

    Authority and control is held at very senior managment levels and within functions instead of at the business unit level. This diminishes accountibility, slows down the ability to get anything done and creates political factions / agendas that may or may not align well across the company. It is easiest to get great results when all parts of the organization are aligned, incented and motivated toward the same goals. Big companies often have this problem but it seems accentuated at this point in time at EDS. Some of this is driven by history and some is driven by strong opinioned leaders with short sighted vision

    Advice to Management

    Build greater levels of trust

    Pros

    EDS has traditionally provided great opportunities for outstanding employees. There are opportunities to change job roles based on business needs and expand one's skill base and scope. Despite some "bad eggs", most managers are solid, caring people who look out for their employees.

    Cons

    Granted, some positions can be shifted to lower cost countries, but that is a fact in all IT providers as well as in any IT organization.

    Advice to Management

    In the "old" days, there were fewer job titles and fewer layers. This provided more of a "one EDS" view. I think that some thought should be given on how to bring back that old approach. I also find that over the years, senior management has become more distant than in the past. It used to be nothing to talk to a senior leader. There was no "Mr." in conversations. Now that is common...

    Pros

    EDS is the best company to work with starting from the Brand. The eagle logo depicts its character.
    There is a book Under the wings of the Eagle...or where eagles fly. See the world best advertisement of EDS it will be available launched in superbowl on Squirrels, the plane running everything talks about te personality of EDS. Employee care was the best part. Always the company worked for the Customer . Clients interest was supreme for them.Their ambassador program thought leadership program, GVS program, Internal learning and training program...EDS had around 2800 training program as it had a university . One should visit the Dallas Texas office to know the greatness of the company.

    Cons

    Global...some times system driven exercises. Complex huge large projects.
