    Pros

    If you need a job, and they just happen to be there, then you would be lucky. But do not expect to be treated as anything other than a number, and way for them, the company to make money off of you.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, their goal setting process is a joke, because there is no where to go.

    Advice to Management

    Get out before they can you!!

    I worked at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fexible work hours

    Cons

    Mandatory unpaid overtime of 4-8 hours per week sepending on level. Frequent layoffs. Leadership is stearing the ship blindfolded. Too much time spent reporting instead of doing. Not sure if the company has defined/ desired culture or values.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do their jobs. When you invest in a new effort see it through rather than laying everyone off halfway into it. Talk to your employees and do away with the military attitude and hierarchy.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck. Can't think of anything else right now.

    Cons

    Constant state of instability. Constant restructuring.

    Leadership puts the fear into you. If you don't comply blindly, you're out. You can't trust leadership like that.

    Politics EVERYWHERE to the point where it hinders the ability to get your work done.

    You've got leadership from the "Mainframe days" trying to compete in a more technologically innovative arena, and they're fumbling the ball.

    Sales is completely in over their heads. They'll cut sales people left and right, but there is no support despite a full org chart of people on the operations side. Start on the other side of the fence and get rid of some of the dead weight in ops instead of cutting the people who bring in the business.

    Advice to Management

    Instill a feeling of trust with your employees. Try to relate to the pains they're going through as they watch their coworkers of 20 years get let go. Get the org under control.

    Pros

    The only thing I can think of is there is no overtime

    Cons

    There is no interesting work, morale is dismal, the CEO is running the company into the ground, benefits are FAR below average.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little time understanding your departments and asking your employees how they feel.

    Pros

    Some great people. But don't get too used to them.

    Cons

    Leadership is not accountable for anything.

    No Support Structure in place for ES. Biz Ops is a bottleneck and counter to productivity. They've bitten off more than they can chew on. You have to find pockets outside of ES if you want anyone to help you.

    ES leadership, more like ES sinkingship. Sales is not enabled. They are completely disabled.

    No faith or confidence in leadership, poor decision making.

    Too many leaders and directors and they keep firing everyone who doesn't rank in their eyes. Too much of the same - everyone in leadership is from Dell.

    Rash decisions, blind leading the blind. Restructure, and fire everyone. Then 1 qtr later go back to the old structure and fire more people. You really can't make this stuff up.

    Good people are quitting daily. Good for them. Hopefully I'm next. All of the good talent is walking out the front door.

    You keep firing employees, how bout you fire some leadership too as an act of good faith.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself. If you really care about the company, turn in your resignation

    Pros

    They are higher paying than most technical call centers.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Wont listen to a word you or anyone else has to say. They do not care about the employees. Health insurance is subpar. Building is mostly empty and appears that they are going under FAST! They are sending most of the jobs they have to India.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Constructive criticism is not always a bad thing. It is meant to be "Constructive". Stop sending jobs to India. Yes, they may be cheaper, but 1 of us can do the jobs of 4 of them.
