    Pros

    people have heard of it, salary is OK, health insurance is good, unisys has lots of locations, retirement fund matching

    Cons

    Unisys' treatment of employees as assets in the same way it regards printers, laptops, and office chairs leads to a depressing, negative environment with no interest in employee development,

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

    Pros

    Great parking, good location, located in a convenient location for lunch, none of which matter unless the job itself is terrible. Actually hated going to work in the morning.

    Cons

    Caustic environment, finger pointing, CYA, every man for himself attitude, apparent new culture that is designed to make Unisys a contender in business development but is doing the opposite. VPs feeling pressure to succeed or resign/be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Believe the incentive plan set up by management has created the poor environment and will work to undermine any gains achieved.

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

    Pros

    Infrastructure does a good job at supporting remote employees.

    Cons

    It's a cut-throat environment where everyone seems to always be on edge and worried about their job, vs. worrying about creating a good product. Off-shoring is poorly handled and contributes to this atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    There's no concept of "team" that I could see... that needs to be worked on.

    Pros

    Some benefits are zero-day and there's no delay with the first pay check. Pay is a little better than for the average call center.

    Cons

    Shift work with no regard for experience, outside commitments (including religious accommodations). Rude co-workers, poor training (a lot of PowerPoint, with little hands-on), favoritism from the start... Bait-and-switch hiring practices that force people to work in areas they weren't I it all hired for.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees on schedules. Take care of your direct hires first over sub-contractors.

    I have been working at Unisys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits package is average or slightly above.

    Cons

    Job security is dismal. Outsourcing overseas is the preferred method of employment. Management is very shortsighted with little sense of direction. More focused on budget restraints than developing a successful business model. Mid level teams and in some cases individual employees work in silos.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out of the sand. Become more aware of what your employees and teams are doing. Provide input and guidance for both short and long term goals.
