    I have been working at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Employee focus seems to be on the business and the clients. When I look around, everyone seems to know what there priorities are.

    Cons

    Not the most efficient organization in terms of red tape, mandatory practices (training, time-keeping, etc.), disorganized intranet and the occasional re-org/lay-off round. All of this makes accomplishing tasks more challenging than it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Make the internal website a tool rather than a trap. Prioritize help desk automation as a business line.
