    I worked at Unisys (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits.
    Equitable and market-comparable pay.

    Cons

    Sales force and management have lost their way resulting in the collapse of any real chance of earning a bonus on any form of a compensation plan.

    Advice to Management

    Dump and replace sales management and sales force; replace with a truly knowledgeable consultative sales team with integrity and scruples.

    Pros

    Some of the management is amazing and will not only coach and mentor you but will also have your back as applicable. Many of my coworkers were true team players and always willing to share knowledge. The benefits are quite competitive.

    Cons

    You are always in fear of your position being "off-shored" - even going through exercised of what in your job function could be off-shored. There's zero clear leadership from senior management and no transparency of what's really going on. Senior management hides behind slogans and so-called "mission statements". I've been with Unisys long enough to know that it goes in cycles of "move everything off shore", "tick off clients", "panic and pull everything back on shore". 2016-2017, they're back into the "off-shore everything" mode.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring client requests to keep the support they're paying for in their local country. Stop making your employees feel like they're an expendable commodity who's positions can be reassigned on a whim. Stop making short-sited cuts and changes. The board of directors needs to keep a level-headed CEO and stop swapping out the CEO everytime the afore mentioned cycle goes too far.

    Pros

    flex work schedule, kinda...but pretty normal as compared to other in the industry

    Cons

    The pay and benefits are not great. They post for and bring you in as a "virtual" associate at even a lower pay (selling you that you won't have commuting expenses), then "reserve the right to change at any time". Meaning, if you are within 30 miles of a site, you will eventually be required to start commuting. They do not keep their word and will not compensate you for making a change. So be aware.
