    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For an experienced hire:
    1. They simply expect you to do a good job. None of the stupid rah rah exercises.
    2. The employment rating is fairly simple. At the end of the day, they just look at whether you have done a good job.

    Cons

    1. This is not a job where you are trying to go up in the ladder. Most probably you can, but as a tech professional, I want to be paid well and not go into management.
    2. This loose structure may not work for everyone.

    I worked at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Big Company with a lot of people.

    Cons

    Rather than build the company, they run quarter to quarter and make knee jerk cuts and then need staff the next quarter. People don't seem to be an asset.

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, they want employees/help employees get certifications, not much distance from higher management

    Cons

    on-site contractors have no ties/communication to Unisys, they offer higher salary at beginning of interview process and then cut it down when they know you might say yes.

    I worked at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Good training and great coworkers. Good pay and bonuses. Some work from home options. On site cafeteria and large food vending area.

    Cons

    Bonus system is odd because metrics do not fit the same in all departments. Too often they hire too many and have random Workforce Reduction layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Why do workforce reductions in one queue when another is hiring?
