Pros

Unisys has a flexible atmosphere, not high stress, good work-life balance and many employees working remotely. Remote access and conference calling are common. There is a strong management embrace of information sharing through internal social media technology, though it is not widely used by employees.

Cons

Unisys, or at least the Federal Systems division, seems to be going nowhere. HQ is staffed by an older workforce, many of whom seem to be here simply because this is where they are. Morale-building efforts to counteract austerity measures of the last few years are very weak, there is little in the way of loyalty or a sense of a Unisys identity. Recognitions beyond a boss's "attaboy" are rare, salaries are stagnant. Middle management priorities seem to bounce from one crisis to the next, rarely in line with the larger company direction.

Advice to Management

The continued financial strengthening of the company, and the focus on a few key service areas, is helping employees to feel more secure about the long-term health of the company. The employee performance review process and the annual goals are not trickling down to drive performance at the field level.

    Pros

    Company has strong position with clients. Teams care about clients. Teams are good at reacting to needs. Professional teams at Director levels and below.

    Cons

    BU/s continue to be internally focused. Some business unit leaders rarely even speak to clients other than the ones they already know like Banks they use to work for. BU leader tend to insulate themselves from bold people / activities until they are proven,,, then take credit. For those that are bold in middle management, they don't last long, too threatening to leadership.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow, take a hard look at the EC qualifications. At least a few of them have a track record of losing ground even during booming economies. These are the people leading your business units.
