    I worked at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Relatively Stable business in their core areas of strength. They have long-standing entrenched positions with key clients in certain marketplaces

    Great place to work if you are tech specialist and want to do the same job for many years.

    Cons

    There is almost no formal path to career advancement. You bring skills with you, develop them almost entirely on your own, and then you are jettisoned when there is no longer fit. There is little culture for mentorship and stewardship. You need to land on the right set of leaders to advance.

    Extremely siloed. UIS is trying get more agile create cross-functional teams to get into emerging market spaces, but some of the personnel has been entrenched for 20+ years and have incentive or inclination to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    HR and talent management is not in-line with where the company claims it wants to go. In my project experience of trying work across business units to deliver projects, it's a bunch of "buck-passers" with far too few engaged team members.


  2. "Poorly Managed Projects, and Employees are Treated as Expendable"

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

    Pros

    Lower management was generally very good, and my coworkers were generally nice.

    Cons

    The company is on shakey financial footing, and is bidding contracts in an unrealistic fashion.
     Long story short, they are working their salaried staff to death to compensate for their lack of planning, and so that they do not need to hire more head-count or pay hourly staff overtime. They weren't even apologetic about this. There was no training, and miniscule or no raises.

    Advice to Management

    If you want your business to be successful, you need happy, well-trained and loyal technical staff.
