I worked at CSC full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent staff who are willing to step in and assist with solving problems. Compensation is fair, at or slightly below the market. There are plenty of opportunities to move about the company and gain experience if you work hard and are a top performer.

Cons

The company is going through a “transformation”. Delayering of staff continues. There may not be enough staff to complete the work that must be accomplished. Work / life can be an issue depending on your role.

    Pros

    Lots of internal opportunities, if you're willing to dig in and look for them. Large company with significant resources.

    Cons

    Things can get crusty. Recommendations for internal improvement get filed away in the 'ignore-forever' cabinet. All efforts must be charged to a particular project, which can become onerous when some tasks don't cleanly fit into any given project (and pretty much guarantees that internal development just doesn't happen). Boring culture for a young professional (stodgy, starchy).

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CSC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - exposure to large systems
    - most of the employees under management are competent and care
    - lots of long term customers who potentially supply job security
    - you get to see first hand results of your work with clients
    - very senior company so growth potential is there as many retire

    Cons

    - Health plans quadrupled in price
    - No bonuses, no employee engagements or events, and no/minimal raises. NO work/ife balance
    - Everyone was furloughed and took paycuts and vacation cuts but management continues to receive bonuses while sending out weekly emails about how well the company is doing and how high our record profits have been, (REALLY?!)
    - Management is extremely senior, unproductive, and overpaid and more worried about their annual survey score than actually making productive changes
    - After annual employee survey results (write in the space type response) hammered management, they changed the survey to multiple choice and biased questions instead of making any actual changes
    - The office branch has gone from 2000+ employees to under 400 - (not everyone was fired) so what do you think

    Advice to Management

    Sweeping changes are needed beginning with extremely top heavy upper management. New CEO has started the process but may be too-little too-late. At least pretend like you care for employees well-being and work/life balance.
