I worked at Computer Sciences Corp full-time for more than 10 yearsPros
There was flexibility in working from home which enabled a decent work life balance especially for those with children-but CSC not alone in providing that. Within my dept we were encouraged to make the job/roles our own, and develop, innovate etc which was great-but then all that changed and US decided to sack senior people including our own brillliant head of dept who was soon snapped up by a competitorCons
CSC never (in the UK) paid very well, it was average/fair but no more, but flexibility and quality of work and this ethos of innovating etc made up for not having a leading salary.
However since 2011/2 things deteriorated with the night of the long knives, and outstanding people were dismissed/made redundant. Managers did stand up for their staff-and were dismissed /punished for their efforts.
Anyone who questioned anything was demoted/dismissed/compromised out.
Morale plummeted, and despite still wanting/trying to do a good job unless the answer you gave was the one the US wanted to hear you were told to change it-many refused as professional advice is just that-you cannot change it to suit the desires of the record keepers!!
Truly committed, highly competent , hard working people were left with the choice of compromising every grain of their humanity, decency and professionalism by staying or leaving-most have or are seeking to leave be that by VR or just when they secure another job. Years of commitment to CSC and total support for CSC has been replaced by a do the minimum possible culture whilst seeking an exit asap.
Promotions are restricted to yes men, personal growth/development has been at a standstill for years, the originally good leadership at the UK senior levels has now all either been removed (because it was good and did not speak with twisted tongue to keep its job) or has pursued VR/retired/escaped to new jobs, and the thanks to those that are left has been to tell most they are failing in their appraisals, grant no bonuses (although the US all get them!!) and deny salary rises.
It was the utter lack of ethics and human decency that finally got to me and I know many others who refused to eg: mark down staff in appraisals just to meet bell curve requirements , so like many before me I left.Advice to ManagementAdvice
It was/is well understood by all that some things needed to change, but the required changes (and not all have been truly required) could have been handled humanely, and sensitively instead of the wholescale butchering of so many who had been nothing but very competent, hard working and utterly loyal (always going the extra mile) employees for years.
The message that sends to remaining employees and indeed current and potentially new clients/the industry in general about CSC is not one to be proud of.
This short sightedness is coming back to bite CSC as so many were in highflying/senior positions and have now gone on to other similar positions-very many with CSC major clients and competitors which holds a whole new raft of risks for CSC moving forwards when contracts are up for renewal, new bids appear etc.
Recent losses of major deals/renewals are thus hardly surprising.
It is such a shame as things could have been so very different as people did understand and indeed supported the rationale of change being needed, but letting them go decently, humanely etc would have meant they continued to support CSC from OUTSIDE of CSC-as it is no one wants anything to do with CSC, and clients comment that if this is how CSC deals with its own people, why should they believe CSC will not deal with them, the clients, in a similar savage and uncaring manner?Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
