    Pros

    EDS provided an opportunity to purse a long term career, with global opportunities. The internal company resources and the availability of a broad shared knowledge base is good. Lots and lots of online learning opportunities.

    Cons

    The emphasis on off shoring resources and cost containment - doing it cheaper is always an IT mantra and EDS, an HP company, was no exception. Of course a lot of that is driven by the accounts that EDS services.
    Benefits freeze or downsizing, stockholder accountability created lean compensation environment

    Advice to Management

    Go back to caring about the people and taking care of them and you will incent them to work harder for your company. Don't just classify them as a resource.


  2. "Poor Pay, decent opportunities"

    Pros

    They do not pay that well, but there is plenty of opportunity to move around and try new things. Also international opportunities.

    Cons

    They don't pay well. I would not recommend them on that alone, but if you are desperate, go for it.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to retain talent. Don't let the good ones go and try to support educational opportunties more. That will help keep them.
