No opinion of CEO

Pros

If you get into a good team with a good manager you will be o.k...but promotions and training is a hit and miss. In the wrong area then favourism is ver much the name of the game!!

Cons

Low salaries, less chance of promotion, no recognition when a job is well done.

Advice to Management

Value your employees and invest in them and stop recruiting monkeys on low salaries to do the job and relying one superhuman to look after 20 incompetent people!!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    EDS was a good company to work, not perfect but you learnt a lot from good people. You had the opportunity to do many things and travel with a broad range of clients. They had good processes in most cases and this helped you become good and thorough at your job.

    Cons

    Although good to work for there was many imperfections, too much bureacracy which needed to be removed, limited pay structures, improvment in productivity. It was getting there. However HP have ripped it to pieces, redundancies, pay freezes, pay cuts where they could. No regard for the people. Many have left and many will in the future, soon there will no be much left.

    Advice to Management

    think of your people, these are your best assets.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    EDS overall not really excellence for employee, but still consider satisfactory except for salary range not competitive to other IT service provider.

    Cons

    After acquired by HP, 5-15% pay cut, all sort of 'back door' cut and lower benefit and unfriendly policy is adding salt to EDS employee's wound. With the announcement of Q3 good profit and growth in HP, where the shareholders and top management share the joys, Ironally employee see no sign of growth in earning as employee, not even to recover their cut income over the year.
    HP CEO has no way of knowing good resources are most valuable assets in service line, and eventually HP will lose the good resources in time to come, and it is happening..

    Advice to Management

    While looking at the good figure in HP finance book, please take look of the employee payslip, and while listen to the compliments from your shareholders, listen to the cry of employee
