I have been working at CSC full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Exposure to DOD work. Interaction with many levels of management. Ability to assume visible positions in a project. Work load typically not bad. Little travel (for me). Good salary.

Cons

CSC is now trying to emulate HP as a low cost provider. There is NO training available EVER, but you are expected to increase your skills for free on your own time. Poor vacation policy and consideration for employees. Poor hiring practices- becoming a body shop. Dilbert-like corporate culture.

Advice to Management

CSC needs to decide whether it wants to compete on quality or price. Being a consultant means the employer should provide real training to keep skills updated.

    I worked at CSC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn to work in a big organization
    Learn to deal with a lot of red tape
    Learn to read between lines and cut the fluff

    Cons

    The company doesn't value you as their employee
    The company will look for every way to reduce what you should be getting
    No Incentives for going over and above
    With all the changes that is happening now, the employees are not motivated or happy. Hence the support you get from them is so so as well.

    Advice to Management

    It is not all about money. Learn to value your employees.
