- Friendly environment - Facilities weren't bad - Benefits were okay, could've been better - Good place to start out before doing bigger and better or if you don't require huge salaries
- Younger, competent workers are not mentored, coached or trained into better workers. - With the latest re-structuring, uncertain as to what future work will look like - Once your contract runs out, if you haven't found anything good luck - Management has been a confusing word

Good to go with the first good negotiated salary
Negotiate your salary for the first time and it will be the same till you retire.

Vitriol and hyperbole aside, I honestly can't think of anything. Some of my colleagues were OK. I guess we had a sort of grim camaraderie that got us through the days.
If you achieve your targets, they'll raise them, or they'll lay off about a third of your team. Or in some cases, both. They will keep moving the goal posts until you fail, then blame you for not working hard enough. Morale is so low people are leaving in droves and entire teams are collapsing. Management that make decisions so out of touch it is clear they have no idea what the majority of the work force actually do on a daily basis. Pay rises are so small and infrequent that most salaries are not even keeping up with the rise in the cost of living.5

Good customers that are major players in thier market. Good teams
If you negotiated your salary badly when joining you will never get a good salary after that

High Learning Curve for freshers Transparent Management
Not Much of salary hike and you can find a bit favourism towards certain people when it comes to promotions.

Only when position is directly billable to the customer.
Most of the time PCOs are not directly billable to projects so salary increases are very small. Same for Contracts, Billing and other supporting groups. Benefits are bad, especially if working outside VA & MD.

If you know manager, you don't need to work
Horrible company to work with.. No employee satisfaction. every quarter list of people to be fired with medium and highly paid resource. Salaries are very low and they will sign a bond before offer in india for 3 years with offshore employee. Lots of people are suffering because they cant go out because of bond and these guys wont increase pay. It is like jail, where you will only given food for work, like slaves.. horrible company now a days.. They fired all good management and they have only managers with no management skill. Horrible company now, It was good company before 2008. Starting Sep 1 they also removed vacation policy...3

No Pros... I didn't find anything positive here so can't give you incorrect information. I has already shut down to reimburse for certification.
company leadership has high level of diplomacy, haphazard policies. If your manger or team lead doesn't like you then you'ld get lowest rating which means you'ld be asked to leave immediately... moreover, they don't even provide cabs when they ask to leave. No salary appraisal on 2 ratings (1 is the highest and 5 is the lowest) and no job surety on 3 or lower ratings. Guys don't join CSC... it can fire people who are on high pay scale any time and replace the vacancy with GET (graduate trainee who has just passed his graduation). For women it is the worst one now... very high pressure over employees... overall, leaving on your decision but my recommendation not to join it. High salary means high risk of job.

The salary was competive and that is about all I can say that is positive.
Not enough salary to take away the sting. The culture was brutal and had a meat-grinder feel to it.2

- Willingness to invest in licenses for software tools & resources - Tuition Assistance and other helpful employee benefits to take advantage of
- Salaries for employees in the Michigan office were extremely low compared to market value for tech positions - Employees expected to take on very large burdens in an effort to stay 'leaner' - Company would restructure management multiple times a year to 'fix' problems, rather than putting any actual systemic changes in place to improve service offerings or improve employee experience - Employees in my division were coerced into giving good employment satisfaction scores, told that very annoying practices would be put in place if we gave less than satisfactory ratings. - Frequent on-shore layoffs in favor of off-shore resources - Very poor communication with, and management of, off-shore resources that were in charge of developing service offerings9
