    I have been working at CSC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to do many different assignments and working for different clients. Great co workers. These people will work with you and everyone even overworked try to help each other. Good training opportunities. Can work from home. The job is what you make it.

    Cons

    Constant work force reductions. Sort of like working with an axe over your head. Vacation is not yours to plan since yearly they ask you to take a year typically around Dec and then before March sometimes one or both. You earn vacation throughout the year so don't count on having time for vacations April through whatever time it takes to build it up . High pressure, stress job with 45 hrs wkly min required.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CSC as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some projects/departments have very well defined processes and procedures and must be followed closely for compliance reasons so there is no question about how things should be done. Provides good structure and sets expectations up front.

    Cons

    During the economic uncertainty in 2012-2013, they are trying to do a lot more with a lot less thus overtaxing their existing staff, and contractors even more so. Contractors in my department were not treated like a team member but more like an expendable piece of equipment. They push it so hard to the breaking point, squeeze out every last drop of energy, then throw it out and get a new one.

    Advice to Management

    Treat contractors (and employees) with more respect.
    They are there to provide business/technical expertise and they are human.
    Make people feel valued and they will want to do good work.
