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

Pros

The co-workers were great bunch of guys who were as experienced as I was. We're all had at least 10 years of IT experience, so there was no spoon feeding necessary.
If you like very little management interaction (as I do), I list it as a pro here. Most of the time the managers don't even know that you've showed up to work. The ratio of mgmt to workers is well below industry norm.

Cons

Very little communication from top down. Management is very heavy at the director and above. There were more Directors and VP's on our project than there were managers. And those at the top only knew how to pad the bottom line. Good workers were cut to save money. Newbies were brought in to replace them, but lacked the skills needed to perform the job properly, but CSC saved money in the process.
Consider yourself a cattle when you enter CSC.

Advice to Management

Talk to your employees and listen to them during the monthly meeting. Don't just rely on the managers and directors, they are there to kiss your ass. They are a bunch of "yes" men.

    I worked at CSC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good employee benefits like counseling etc.

    Cons

    Leadership was very unorganized, employees couldn't even get shift differential like they were promised. Expensive healthcare

    Advice to Management

    In all the corporate restructuring to make the shareholders happy, you forgot about the average employee. Get rid of GPARS, you can't reduce the evaluation of a person to a percentage. I had employees who were promised shift differential that haven't received it since the corporate restructure spring of 2013. Get it together.

    SCA wages (bare minimum for my specialty).

    Please pay more fair wages when considering cost of living for an area.
