    I have been working at Unisys part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People you work with are lovely Reasonably regular social meet-ups (dependent on team) Freedom to progress and learn as you would like Fairly flexible around personal commitments for home based work as needed Allowed to manage your own time and work independently Current aim to improve diversity and retention

    Cons

    No structured progression path so you don't necessarily know what you're working towards Not much hands on help for training or learning, most is through online resources which doesn't work for everyone Have heard that it can be hard to get pay rises even in line with inflation

    Advice to Management

    Improve mentoring side of development, and create structured progression paths through the BA and technical routes so that employees know how to progress and become worth more.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Unisys full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It's a job. If you need work and living it home or near retirement age with your mortgage paid off, then it's ideal I suppose. You don't get worked like a dog unlike some other companies.

    Cons

    When I first joined Unisys many years ago it was a fun, great company to work for with a lot of potential. However, it has gone downhill over the years and due to loss of good contracts and financial problems (as a result of some poor decision making) there's literally ZERO room for career advancement. Most of the work as a field engineer is working on Dell EMC equipment performing hardware break fix which is fine, however they have all these silly contracts they've taken on with Microsoft and other companies where you are replacing parts in audio visual equipment and printers which is low level stuff. They are just taking on any contract that comes their way to keep themselves afloat. If you want to progress into Cloud or any of the latest technologies, I'm afraid you won't get that at Unisys. It is pretty much dead end. Not to mention the pay is very low and you can forget about an increase in salary as well as a rise in car allowance. Near the end of my time at Unisys I was just going through the motions and finally decided to move on. It's a shame because there are some good people at this company and I know what could have been, but that's all up to the higher ups.

    Advice to Management

    Start getting with the times and give your current staff incentives to stay as so many good engineers have jumped ship. Make better decisions that will benefit those on the front line and take on better contracts and increase the salary to reflect the rise of the cost of living!

    Pros

    Good place to start after graduation. Flexible hours.

    No career progression. No pay rises.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Offer career progression. Set incentives, that will encourage people to stay, e.g. pay rise.

    Pros

    You can buy extra days off sacrificing from your salary Work can be interesting in some projects Colleagues are nice

    Cons

    No socials organised or even partly funded by Unisys No or very little pay rises Promotions are slow and are more time dependent rather than skill. Promotion does not make you will get a pay rise. Do not feel valued Not possible to decide your own career path and projects Frequent changes of direction from the higher management Micromanagement from the lower management Gaining skills in Unisys mainframes has zero market value Flexible working is not existent

    Advice to Management

    Try to value your employees and not just focus on cost reductions.
