I have been working at Unisys as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of talent within the company--at least the teams I interacted with. Everyone seems very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise. Management has upheld its word and promises and has been honest and up-front with both the good and the bad news.

Cons

Inter-team and intra-team communication is often lacking, and there have been times when no one seems to want to stand up and own a system/device/process.

Advice to Management

The "try-before-you-buy" sub-contracting setup can be quite frustrating to new hires and, often, good people are lost because of that frustration. At the same time, some direct hiring does seem to take place and isn't always "spot-on" for skill matches, personality matches, or other factors. There doesn't seem to be rhyme or reason why one person is hired directly while another is brought on as a sub-contractor in a "try-first" situation. I'd recommend that it be all or nothing with the hiring process--either everyone needs to be hired on from sub-contractor status, or hiring needs to be direct for all. I wouldn't call the current setup "discrimination", but certainly is lacking in effectiveness.

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy going, flexible, hire anybody it seems. Two weeks notice declined so I have two weeks of vacation yay!

    Cons

    Pay was terrible, being the lowest bidding contractor it reflects back to it's employees.
    They will use you and push you and use you some more in the most in-efficient practices I've ever taken part of.
    Super politically correct management.
    Very very hard to get assistance with benefits, pay checks, and any other back end support especially if you are remote.
    Poor recognition for their high performing workers, and they are blind to see the poor performing members of the team and let them continue to just float around.

    Advice to Management

    Congratulations for making management and contributing to continued unethical business practices skimming through loopholes and barely legal exceptions.
