    I have been working at Electronic Data Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you get very lucky, you might get to work for a leader who can motivate, mentor and inspire the staff. You can actually learn a lot from such a leader. We had a few in the past at EDS, but most have gone. With the good leader, along comes opportunities for various experiences, training and even promotion.

    Cons

    There are very few good leaders at EDS. Even in the past, when we had a few, the more senior ranks were awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ross Perot envisaged a dynamic business excelling at providing I T Services and an inspirational place to work. We have become a financial juggling company that doesnt care, despite the bull, about the customers or the staff. It is all about numbers. As an I T Services company, if we offered excellence, we would grow and be profitable. As it is, we offer financial juggling, deliver as little as possible for as much as possible and pay our staff as little as we can. I guess by offshoring and keeping our prices rock bottom, we are the Wal Mart of the industry. No quality, good price.

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Local to my home area

    Cons

    Saw very bad morale, a lack of pay awards and training, a complete disregard from HR about career development. I felt immediately that I had lost control of my career when starting here. despite all that was mentioned at the interview about carrer prospects and personal progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing to the shareholders and fixed budgets and let your staff provide the service you aspire to provide by allowing them to grow !!
