    Pros

    Name recognition. Most hiring managers have heard of Unisys and are more likely to take a chance on you.

    Cons

    No real room to advance within the company. I haven't seen turnover this high since my high school days working at McDonald's.

    Constant reminders, by management, that everyone is disposable.

    Constant threats, from management, that you will be fired for the smallest mistake, even if you haven't made any yet...just to keep you on your toes.

    Just a general contempt towards its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like the assets that they are, otherwise they will jump ship for the first company that shows them even a shred of respect!

    Pros

    Great and resourceful team. Friendly management

    Cons

    Management is not transparent. It feels that there isn't one team but separate satellite sites

    I have been working at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Pays well for entry level support positions. Good chance for progression to T2 due to high turnover. Friendly low level managers.

    Cons

    Is a large corporation. Lacks wider culture. Resources are hard to find. Pay raises are nearly non-existent (at least for support personnel).

    Advice to Management

    I know more about the company that I support than the company I work for. Modernizing systems and increasing transparency (that's more than memos about our C-levels and Q1 profits) would go a long way to help that.

    Pros

    Learn new things, friendly coworkers, exposure to different technology and software. Nice facility. Stable hours and guaranteed full time hours.

    Cons

    Micromanagement to the extreme, but no managers or supervisors around when you need help. No idea who is in charge. Very little freedom. Constant changes that are not communicated until after they’ve been implemented. Very poor/limited training, Short lunches/breaks that are micromanaged, you better go when they say to or your “adherence” goes down, doesn’t matter if you’re on a call. You are a cog in a very large machine and nothing more. Not bad if you are looking for experience or a short term job but not a place to make a career. It is a call center job. Not an IT job. Very high turnover and favoritism abounds.

    Advice to Management

    Relax. Stop the micromanagement, give your employees more time to learn. Communicate with your employees. I understand the managers on the floor are probably just as stressed as we are by upper management and are being watched like crazy as well but give new employees more time to learn. Stop micromanaging everything so strongly and let your employees do their job without fear of being reprimanded unfairly. Let us go to the restroom if we need to. The whole place needs a chill pill. It’s certainly not a typical IT environment that I have been exposed to where employees enjoy a certain amount of freedom.
