Pros

Best of breed solutions, great teams, leveraged knowledge?
Opportunities to develop a career due to the diversity of clients and solutions.

Company undertook some poor contracts leading to the loss of market position and enabling takeover by HP. Resulted in a loss flyover nance and overhead position as they cut costs to make the balance shheets to look good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, they are gone.

    Former Employee - Site Support in Tulsa, OK (US)

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    EDS took a chance on someone who was new to the IT field, and they treated me well. I learned so much about datacenters and how physical security should be run while I was there. The people there were very helpful and understanding when it came to a new guy who was still learning his way.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, sometimes management was not approachable. Not my immediate boss, he was actually very approachable, but upper management. When I expressed my need to move forward with my career, it was met with an attitude that it was not important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone is looking to move forward with their career, advancing themselves, they may be a valuable asset to you. Keep this in mind when an employee approaches you about wanting to move forward and do more.
