The opportunity to work from home "IF" it was written in the initial contract. Most of the contracts, I was on the environments were comfortable. Benefits were decent. Average pay.
Working offsite under the new mgmt plan-your manager who rates your perf. is not truly aware of your accomplishments and perf- no/low wage increase.

Helping train Army pilots was the greatest expierence
Management has no clue about what is going on. Managers lie and get people in trouble because they can't do their job and blame other people2

CSC is a global company with huge resources. You can find yourself working on multiple accounts and the possibility of working overseas is there. They do have a support system for their employees - staff managers are on hand for your queries and HR has always been ready to help. Self improvement is mainly through CBTs of which there is a huge range and also a large library of view-online books.
They're looking to do everything on the cheap so unless you are managment, they'll probabaly try and outsource your position as soon as they can. If you've found yourself insourced into CSC then forget about trying to improve your package - its not going to happen.2

Mostly the work culture is fine to good. International work environment.
The People Manager are bad are very partial and their decisions are not cross checked by other senior managers. If you don't bother about promotions and hikes, this is a good place to work.

CSC could be a good company to work for if they figured out how to manager new and old employees. Two different cultures and no interest or desire to bring the two together. They pay well because otherwise no one would work there
They are doing horribly in the marketplace because of their lack of leadership and ability to sale as their sales strategy is weak.1

None I can think of unless you like to pay maximum for your health benefits . Pay is good
Managers degrade the employees; want you to work as a rebot not as a human; unhealthy environment1

Stable contracts and opportunities to try new things. Managers were always open to employees shifting contracts within the company to build skills and experiance. Formal training was harder to get. Pay is good for early/mid career but is not competitive for higher level skillsets. PMs were (generally) trained and supported to manage relationships with customers very proffesionally. This protects technical employees from most of the craziness that can happen on a bad contract. Most managers were very supportive of work/life balance issues.
HR is almost useless for EEO issues. Their only purpose is to provide plausible deniability. They are not interested in dialog to straighten out problems and educate the offender. They will simply move the complainer to other work and let the offender continue unabated.

Competitive medical and life benefits. Educational benefits. CSC provides a good package for all standard benefits including 401K matching, Life and ADD insurance, medical, dental and vision insurance, tuition reimbursement and some certification training.
In the last two years, CSC has become a company only interested in immediate benefits to the stockholders. Prior to that, the company was highly focused on employee development and incentives to excel. After 2013 and a reduction of over 40% of the management staff, it became virtually impossible to figure out who your direct supervisor was. In most cases the direct supervisor worked in an entirely separate office or location, sometimes in another part of the world. Employees were and are at the mercy of project managers to support their performance appraisals. CSC also elected to enforce a more stringent employee rating policy, placing 40% of employees in the 'Needs Improvement' or 'Unsatisfactory' category.4

If you are a Senior level consultant, low maintenace, low need for assistance and ready to work in a corporate environment and just "do your job", CSC is OK. Individuals can be recognized for their subject matter expertise and will be in high demand. The pay can be good for those high demand subject matter experts.
CSC does not attrach or develop strong leaders. Poor managers and/or leaders tend to be tolerated at the expense of attracting and retaining the best people. CSC is a technology company that has not figured out how to move into the C-Level office and solve business problems. Thus, most of CSC's business tends to be very competitive and in lower end commodity services.3

easy to park and company wide variety of coffee choices.
1. Manager can do work at home, but employee can't. 2. Never increase the salary no dime for 5 years but managers are increased $$$$ each year. 3. Manager's mood up and down very often. 4. Sometimes work until midnight, but no dinner/no light food. 5. Management won't listen to employee.1
