    Pros

    If you are a strong individual you will do very well at CSC. Career advancement is very strong in my experience and strong employees do very well. There are opportunities in delivery, support, project management, business development, consulting as well as many other areas. And people are constantly being moved to other accounts, roles, responsibilities. Very good company if you are flexible and can take the heat!

    Cons

    This is a fast paced company where expectations of employees are high. If you can't say "no" then you will be overworked. Need to be comfortable with being an individual contributor as opposed to constant praise and feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Leadership need to provide very clear direction that permeates all levels of the company. We all need to know what the short, medium and long-term goals are.

    Pros

    Good place to start. CSC provides good training oportunities for some. Lower level managers are some of the best around. The benifits package is quite good.

    Cons

    Employees are just numbers. They look more at education/training than they do ability to perform. They don't motivate their employees at all. Doing an excellent job is not noticed but neither is doing a poor one.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining the good employees and make the tough decesions to get rid of those that just fill a slot and are not doing the job. The numbers of high quility employees that have left or are looking to leave is daunting; those with lesser abilites never seem to leave.
