    I worked at Affiliated Computer Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Easy to get hired on.
    They do actual development work.

    Cons

    Every year since I started 5 years ago, they have cared less and less about their employees.
    They discontinued 401k matching.
    They do not pay out accrued vacation time on your last paycheck.
    They have implemented company wide wage freezes.
    In my time, they have shifted their development from 80/20 onshore/offshore to 20/80 onshore/offshore.

    They make no efforts to keep their employees and would simply prefer to just hire new people despite the fact that they are constantly hemorrhaging talent and knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to keep your employees.
    Stop shifting your entire workforce offshore.

    I worked at Affiliated Computer Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Parent company Xerox bringing their positive culture into organization.

    Cons

    - Company wide salary and bonus freezes for the last five years.
    - Reactive lay-off and hiring campaigns.
    - Employees not given much career opportunities, especially if you have been with the company for less than five years
    - Entrenched employees with 15+ years of tenure are senior and very vocal. They resist change.
    - Unhappy clients = less renewals = more lay-offs.
    - Read the fine print before taken on employment. Pay specific attention to the job offer, especially on how you will be paid and if you are considered a temporary worker vs. full-time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Nurture your current employees-- pay them a bonus. The economy is picking up. Many will start looking elsewhere.
    - Break up your "good old boys" clubs. It is a liability to the company in the long run. Start by looking at the tenure gap we have in certain places.
    - With the recent massive lay-offs, you should treat your "alumni" with dignity and respect. Form an alumni relationship group. Rehires can be some of your best assets when times get better.
    - Create an employee brand. Make people proud to work for ACS.
