    I have been working at Unisys full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Unisys has a lot to offer me, but they are not fair about it. With that being said, pros would be my coworkers have a ton of experience and advice to offer. The company is knowledgeable in their areas of expertise. Work form home options, compensation when traveling, fair vacation and sick policies, and somewhat stable employment if assigned to good projects.

    Cons

    Salary and incentives are terrible.One significant raise despite two significant promotions. Company is experiencing hardships, thus salary increases are infrequent/non-existent, layoffs, and there is too much overhead in terms of upper management (those who don't actually contribute to the bottom line or client relationships). Seems like the people that are actually making the company money are paid terrible. Company charges client way more than the actual employee doing the work will see. I've had four different HR managers, and only met two in person (none of which I worked with on a regular basis).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and compensate employees who are actually contributing. increase salary for those who have done time, have contributed to the success of Unisys, and who have awesome performance and great reviews (especially those who have reviews from clients and coworkers). When your valued employees are complaining, you know the company is doing something wrong.

    I have been working at Unisys as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    OK in all departments. Can do better when it comes to treating their employees.

    Cons

    Salaries are low, not market standards.
    Management is rigid, not open for newer technologies. Need to open eyes and let young and fresh minds take over.
    Brown noser will of-course move fast upwards and go places.
    Executives are fearful and insecure of their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to open eyes and let young and fresh minds take over.
    Let bright ideas come in and let people be creative.
