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.

    Pros

    Highly competant, self motivated employees. Collegial and collaborative culture. Flexibility of work location and hours. Known for "doing what it takes" to provide service and resolve client issues.

    Cons

    Benefits are in the bottom quartile. Reductions in force occur quarterly. Uninspiring senior management has let to a five year decline in the business. New management is not engaged for the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up , get out of the tower and get engaged.
