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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    More work with no additional compensation, Wage freeze but upper management is still paid millions in bonuses, No communication- it has to come from the grapevine, No job security, Massive layoffs, New direction is too little too late.

    Advice to Management

    Take heed at the documentation given in the comments on your "surveys". The trench diggers deserve recognition because they are the ones making management look good. Take less money as a bonus and put that toward associate salaries. Town Hall meetings are NOT the best way to communicate. Try asking what the working associates' concerns are and address those. Don't just spout off about how wonderful the new "products" are. Tell employees if there will still be a job for them or if you are outsourcing it, automating it or getting rid of it. Try looking at associate concerns instead of always patting yourselves on the back.

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours - It is not a problem if I need to leave early or come in later for an appointment. I am happy to see the new emphasis on global culture.

    Cons

    1)The workload continues to increase but the pay does not. 2) No room for advancement. 3)Outsourcing US jobs to Bangalore is priority. 4)There is a lot of finger pointing when things go wrong and not enough accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Many talented employees have either left or been laid off because corporate appears to care more for the bottom line than it does its employees.
