Pros

Working at EDS is better than Welfare.

Cons

Layoffs every quarter (literally) In the past 7 years that I have worked for EDS ther have been 24 layoffs. If your called back you have to take a 35% paycut if you accept. US Jobs are moving to Argentina and India as fast as possible. EDS contines to cut services to their customers who are paying for services because they do not have the manpower due to constant layoffs. Health benefits continue to deteriorate. Where we used to have a copay now there is a $1000.00 deductable to satisfy before the company pays anything. Its hard to take pride in your work anymore. You have to just get it done, no time to double check anything because there is so much work to do, just get it done and move on to the next issue.

Advice to Management

I would be interested to know what Senior Management thinks is the reason more and more customers are suing EDS. They need to start caring about the customer and not only the bottom line.

    Pros

    There are some "old school" EDSers that are trying to keep the old EDS spirit alive. This includes very personable interactions with management, taking care of people, just being a good place to grow and work.

    Cons

    The folks that are left with the "old EDS" mentality are few and far between. The ones that are left struggle to do small things such as lunch out, trinkets, or any form of recognition since it has all been shut down. Overall compensation is flat and advancement opportunity minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Pay Attention to your employees. Not Managers that tell you what you want to hear.

    Pros

    Challenging (you sometimes have the opportunity to sink or swim on a project), opportunity to advance your career (you can be a hero if you can swim).

    Cons

    Constantly re-organizing (I had 6 managers in one 2 year period), getting lost in the shuffle because of their size (I went 3.5 years one time without a salary increase), beaurocratic (lots of layers and processes), difficult to locate a specific group or service for a customer.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a plan and stick to it for more than a year. In their desire to chase the Industry and secure business, executives are processed through a revolving door and companies are purchased.
