    I have been working at CSC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work Life balance is excellent as are the companies Ethics and Values. The new leadership team have breathed new life in to the company with an exciting program of change and evolution. The prospects for the future look very positive.

    Cons

    Matrix management leads to fragmented career paths as staff are having to manage the expectations of multiple higher level managers often not withing the same capability group as the employee. In addition the Professional / Personal development is woeful. The focus is almost exclusively on internal web based training with no cost.

    I worked at CSC for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good flexible rewards package. Plenty of opportunities for development. Good e-Learning tools.

    Cons

    No work life balance for those working on the front line delivering to clients. 60+ hours a week was needed. Not to delivery the projects but for all the CSC administration. Mobile workers could spend a couple of hours each week booking hotels and processing their expenses claims. Emails requesting internal admin tasks would arrive in rapid succession. There was compulsory training models that could only be done in ones 'spare time'. Reporting and admin tools were getting better but still behind the curve. It was the old case of cobblers children with no shoes.

    Pros

    investment in strategic areas good work/life balance, hardly anyone in the office after 6 pm (UK) management is fully aware that things have to change still employing some clever people benefits/salary quite generous career development options but you have to get proactive

    Cons

    everyone is fearing their job, even the most successful sales people trying to become a sales oriented culture but a) don't know how to and b) to the detriment of the supporting functions outsourcing/near shoring some vital functions like HR and does not work for most parts. mistakes are being made with people's benefits/salaries quite regularly travel policy makes you want to cry vital communication only communicated through the intranet, no human touch employees are not valued as an asset. everyone is replaceable no real team spirit/collaboration going on. in fact often people work next to each other and don't even say 'hi' not even the basics provided (like a pen and paper) New King's Cross office is lovely, but feels like ghost town (may change over the coming months) every year (or earlier) senior management below Mike Lawry is being replaced making it difficult to plan long term they are still using Lotus Notes for crying out loud! equipment (like laptops) are mostly old and on the last leg. sales is getting better ones and iPads now, but often they have to wait for it.

    Pros

    Some good people to work with, although most have left. Good work / life balance. Career opportunities via "dead man's shoes!"

    Cons

    An SI dinosaur with poor delivery capability across all offerings. Massive staff layoffs prior to merger with HP. Sales teams asked to do the impossible... sell stuff which doesn't really exist outside of Powerpoint. Upwards shifting sales targets... don't expect to get paid what your pay plan suggests.
