    Pros

    Working at EDS allows the employee to get comprehensive exposure to working with systems, processes, people and deadlines. It is often said that EDS is great place to start your career, but in order to catch up to the industry pay scale, you need to leave the company and come back again. For employees that stayed with the company for their entire career, you will find low salaries. Most long time employees stayed for job security and because they enjoyed the work they were doing. With the recent buyout of EDS by HP, job security is GONE. It will be interesting to see what comes of a once great company.

    Cons

    The hours at EDS can be long, the compensation for work done above and beyond minimal and the job security non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the philosophy 'People Make a Difference'. What happened - HP?

    Pros

    With over 20 years with EDS, I can honestly say that the ability to manage your own career, make connections with other people and ability to move to new areas is great. You can go from a finance job to an HR job to a Consulting job and into an IT job based on your performance and ability to get the job done. Once you are in the door, the opportunities to move to new work at least every 18 months allows you to build your skills and knowledge.

    Cons

    They will eat you up and spit you out with out a second glance. All that hard work and effort does not create any type of loyalty to you as an employee. There may be a formal career development process, but leadership is non-existent in the support of it.

    Advice to Management

    If you want people to put out their best work, you have to treat them fairly and reward them with intrinsic rewards, not just the extrinsic rewards.
