    I have been working at Unisys (less than a year)

    Pros

    I've only been here a few months, but I can tell you that the comments below are definitely dependent on the location and managers you work for... just like any large company. Check your facts before you join because comments like "no benefits" just aren't true. So far I have been very happy and have found the people to be great!

    Cons

    I guess I have not been here long enough to become disgruntled. No complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to compensate people to retain & reward the top performers. Salaries are low depending on project/contract.

    Worked there for 11 years. Met my wife there.

    I worked at Unisys

    Pros

    Challenging cross functional emphasis. Rewarding experience. Good work-lif balance. One of my former bosses always told me "family always comes first".

    Cons

    Not all bosses would follow the above advise. Expectations were different for different departments. Maybe I was just lucky. But overall company values were family and group oriented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a more consistent review process of employees. Mine were quite different depending on who I was working for at the time.

    I worked at Unisys full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in Unisys for about 2.2 years. The work place and colleagues were good and if u have right potential u can climb career ladder so soon when compared to other companies.

    Cons

    I worked as a business analyst here..I found the work should be process dependant not people dependant.if management takes these steps then it will surely be a great place to work for long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should take steps in making the work as process dependant not people dependant

    I worked at Unisys full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible time, easy access from home when required. It was a great company to work for until they hired the new department head.

    Cons

    None until the new management came in. Unisys also does not provide coffee to employees, which in my mind is essential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flexibility with proposal department employees is essential. Providing coffee to employees is also essential.

    Former Employee - Support Specialist III/Agent Level II in North Salt Lake, UT (US)

    I worked at Unisys full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to gain lots of experience. great platformer company to start off a career with. Decent benefits. Decent starting wage for only needing a high school diploma. Opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    If you are with UTS, it is very difficult to migrate over to UIS, as they have to technically fire you before they can hire you again. UTS got the short end of the stick as far as benefits go. Also, the advancement oppurtunity is very limited there, as all the higher paying positions are with UIS. Also, most of the managers play politics, and don't care about their employees. If you are looking to avoid drama in the work place, this is not the place for you. Unfortunately, it does take more than a good honest hard worker to get perks within the positions. It takes a lot of brown-nosing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you get reports of suspicious activities about your supervisors, you should look into it, rather than just trusting them over all of their underlings.
