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

Pros

Historically employee focused, collaborative, great place to work

Cons

With Mike Lawrie's restructuring plan things have changed dramatically. Benefits were reduced and employees fear salary cuts are next. We just finished the first round of restructuring/flattening/layoffs and it appears a second round will begin soon. Even employees fully billable to contracts have been terminated. Everyone, even Executive VPs, is being moved to tiny 6' x 4' cubes without walls - you literally look the person across from you in the face while working. Staff reductions carried out byt 20-somethings from Boston Consulting who seem to have no regard for value, evaluations or performance of staff. Today, it's an environment of uncertainty, doubt and fear.

Advice to Management

Be honest with employees. Rather than vague discussion of flattening the organization and being customer focused tell us that there will be layoffs and why. Tell us that in order to reduce real estate costs everyone is being moved into move compact space. If you'd just be open and communicate with the employees you'd reduce anxiety and find you have a much more motivated and understanding workforce.

    I have been working at CSC as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent contract rate and some flexibility as far as allowing some remote days. Varied tasks utilizing a lot of BA skills offers opportunity for learning if you have initiative. Some of the people are very nice.

    Cons

    Very much a good ole boy network. Middle management is poor and bullying is tolerated. Morale is low and there is high employee turnover. Health insurance is not very good and is quite expensive. The company is moving to the bullpen open table work arrangement, eliminating cubes.

    Advice to Management

    Management at all levels needs professional training on management skills -- and should be monitored for compliance.
