I worked at Unisys full-time

Pros

Consistancy and roll out of vision and stategy. Albeit, the vison and strategy is continual "right sizing"

Cons

Middle managment is mostly comprised of ex-Field Service engineers who grew up fixing hardware and were so good at it, that they were promoted to managment roles were they have proven to be totally ineffective, uneducated and way under qualified. Supply Chain Managment and Product/Services planning just to name two specific areas.

The culture is one of "good ole boys club" where hard work and higher education is down played in favor of who knew, back when.

Advice to Management

Clean out the middle to senior managment ranks that have over 15 years senority, no college degree (the norm) and at one time repaired equipment for Unisys/Sperry/Burroughs.

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

    Pros

    Company once had great culture and was customer focused

    Cons

    The merger years ago gradually killed the culture and customer focus, changed management, continued shuffling of management and focus, is dragging the company down. Once they sold off the old Borroughs Payment Systems Division, it doomed part of their mainframe line.

    Advice to Management

    Return to a customer, employee focused approach! Shoot for a balance between technology, hardware and services, being totally services focused means you are competing in a market you can never be a real leader in.
