Pros

Coworkers were always the redeeming feature of the account. There were a few duds but many were extremely sharp, and willing to help coworkers learn.

Cons

Same gripes as every other EDS account on the planet: below market pay, massive amounts of unpaid overtime, no training or tuition reimbursement, no time for learning or keeping technical skills current due to understaffing and excessive workloads, miserly raises and bonuses, lots of earned vacation and manager-mandated vacation freezes, and the constant threat of losing your job whenever EDS thinks it's cheaper to cut workers than reduce executive bonuses.

Advice to Management

None, these are longstanding problems for EDS and HP both and the execs would have resolved them long ago if they considered these half as important as stock prices.

    Pros

    Good place to get experience

    Cons

    raise freeze for about 2 years.
    promotion freeze.
    Now as part of HP: No more pension,lower 401k contribution, pay cuts, higher out of pocket for worse health plan options. Told under HP raises are not as common and bonuses are more common. Not good since we know who is getting the big bonuses.

    Approves of CEO

    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.
