I worked at Unisys full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Global experience with great co-workers, most managers were good - able to translate value and alignment of work to overall business goals, exciting and diverse projects, experienced job rotation within department - great cross training/development in profession, Tech savvy, flexible work location (office and virtual w/manager approval)

Cons

Continuous change efforts could be exhausting, Presents with larger organization political challenges, staffing changes reduced opportunity for strategic improvements (more keep the lights on work, fewer project people)

Advice to Management

Listen, trust and empower your subordinates (VPs thru individual contributors) to innovate and deliver on projects. More often than not, the timeline to get final approval would extend project timelines (sometimes doubling project duration) with impact of eliminating cost-savings (too little too late). Speed for delivery is strong on client engagements, less in the corporate office - there is room for improvement.

    I worked at Unisys part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It paid money to sit and talk calls. Had time to study when I first started. That stopped once the middle management had an internet/virus issue, and they took away all internet surfing.

    Cons

    The job is ridiculous. You deal primarily with idiot end users, that are the uppers in their company. Direct supervisor was great. Everyone above were idiots.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees are productive workers.

    I worked at Unisys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects from varied federal government customers. Some incredible talent and thought leadership at the front line and immediate management.

    Cons

    Attempts to redefine / remake the company over the years have been less than successful. Company still trying to figure out if its an IT company or consulting wannabe.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with the partner-lead model
