No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Excellent Teams
- Super flexible to your needs (homeworking, role change, account change etc...)
- Need to 'network' to achieve personal goals - but support offered to do this.
- Line Managers are very supportive but not enough authority to make 'things happen'.
- Good choice of accounts (most industries covered).
- Compared to other companies, good processes in place.
- Very good grad scheme (flexible to get what you want out of it)/

Cons

- Salaries are not competitive.
- Difficult to get a promotion, even if you are working at a 'level higher'.
- Matrix promotion structure which is open to plenty interpretation, sometimes seen as unfair.

Advice to Management

CSC is a great place to work, and many of the people I met had been with tthe company for over 20years. Everyone is laid back and down to earth. I left the company with many friends for life.

Management have high (harsh) targets so it is easy to see what the drivers are.

Everyone I worked with was always helpful, supportive -and often would go beyond the call of duty. It's just a shame that CSC are not able to pay market values.

e.g. I am doing the same role now for 17k more. So there is a huge discrepancy.

    Pros

    Great company to start your career.
    A lot of learning opportunity for those looking out for it.
    The onsite team appreciates your efforts.
    Good enough work-life balance.
    Employee engagement programs are good.

    Cons

    Indian senior management doesn't notice you until you put in your papers.
    Doesn't compete with other companies while paying (salary) it's employees.
    Management is location centric, which means team members from different locations are more or less ignored.
    Isn't the company it used to be before Covansys acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    The salary of the employees should be comparable to the market standard.
    Appreciate those who are working hard and are getting noticed by the onsite team.
    Don't wait till resignation to realize if an employee was good or bad.
    Management should be diverse and a Manager should be available in different locations also (instead of only one).

    Pros

    Employee friendly
    Balance between work and personal life
    Great work culture
    Supportive Management

    Cons

    Slow to start with as in projects
    Growth gets hampered in terms of knowledge for freshers
    Initiative and leadership abilities are not spotted early on or given a chance

    Advice to Management

    When companies are aquired you need to look at the value of employees, they are more than just a number. Also pay should be adjusted rather than adjusting job title to match previous employeers pay.title is adjusted to match what my salary was however I am still assigned the same duties . job description doesnt even closely fit what I do but my pay fits to what my job description is.
