Pros

The workload is fairly light in some groups, allowing time for studying and preparing for future employment. Of course there isn't any training budget, but if you're motivated you can find the training you need.

Cons

I thought things were bad before, but now that we're owned by HP it's gotten even worse. All benefits have been trimmed -- there isn't even money for office supplies. A couple of months ago, there were modest, company-wide pay cuts. Now as part of a Job Code Integration process, some of us are losing an additional 20% (or more) from our salaries.

Advice to Management

All those "motivational" memos and town hall meetings really don't motivate your employees. What motivates us is being treated like intelligent human beings and being fairly compensated.

    Quickly being replaced by off-shore, who like Hurd, do not understand the business

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and stick up for EDS...Don't let Hurd destroy it

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Use to be loyal to employees.
    Nice blue cubicles.
    Good people to work with.
    Good health insurance.
    Work from home used to be encouraged.

    Cons

    Emphasis on solving profit margins through off-shoring and throwing low-priced bodies at projects.
    Top-heavy.
    Many layers of worthless managers.
    Short-sighted pay cuts will drain the company of needed experience, and has drained all goodwill toward the company from the employees.

    Advice to Management

    You're next.
    Customers will see the difference in service, and business will be lost.
    When that happens, don't blame your underpaid, inexperienced staff.
