    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Apologies I can't think of any I'm afraid

    Cons

    Lonely place to work if you're not buddies with the long serving employees and managers, who most of the time work from home anyway

    Advice to Management

    Should not use your 'power' to chastise individuals simply because you do not like them. For example putting someone on a PIP or extending probationary period simply because you don't like honest feedback. This happened to more than one individual.
