    I have been working at Unisys full-time

    Pros

    Panama schedule allows for long weekends
    Fairly relaxed working environment

    Cons

    Company has laid people off to the point that you are working with a skeleton crew. If anyone were to leave unexpectedly, it would cause great difficulty for the remaining employees

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that manning is appropriate for the needs of the customers and employees.

    I worked at Unisys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A good start to your career, basic entry level. Very nice lunchroom and amenities. They do lunch/cookouts for employees occasionally. Right on the riverfront in GA, so the view is relaxing when you get a break. They're flexible when it comes to choosing your hours, so they work with you but the hours are set once you choose. They are okay when it comes to scheduling if you let them know in advance when you need time off.

    Cons

    Not very well organized so it could be run better. They micromanage your time and what you do while you're on the floor. Training is the worst part so if you can get through the first few weeks of training, it might be a breeze. Level 2 management not always on the same page, so that's a little stressful for lower level techs. Very high turnaround. People who stay around do so because they're older and don't want to start over or they're just coasting. Little time for extra training.

    Advice to Management

    Train your trainers to understand that not everyone you hire is familiar with the software. No two employees are alike. One may have more certifications and be more qualified for a position and another may have one certification and be more trained on help desk. You might lose employees if they don't feel well trained and stressed.

    "Just Say No"

    I worked at Unisys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are friendly and good to work with

    Cons

    Low pay
    Constant cuts in people and benefits
    By making Altabef chairman, cuts will continue and in all the wrong places
    They are a hour glass configuration - lots of people at the bottom to do the customer support positions, lots of top (overpaid) people and nothing in the middle. But they have instituted spans and layers to fix that perception.

    Advice to Management

    Decide if you want to continue as a company or just sell it now.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees better.
