    Pros

    The work-life balance is well above-average. As a working person with a family, there is more understanding and acceptance of family needs for employees than I've ever experienced in my 15 year career. The engineering group is solid and develops great innovative products and ideas.

    Cons

    There are a lot of long tenured employees here who have never worked anywhere else. Approx 30-35% of the employee population is age 45+. So it's not uncommon to hear that employees have worked here for 15, 25 even 40 years. Many live in a bubble believing they are over-worked and underpaid. For those who have experienced working at other companies which have much higher demands for less pay you often wonder what most people do all day and why they are complaining in the first place.

    There's a very strong culture of "we always did it this way" which keeps new ideas dead in the water before they ever have a chance to get any traction. Decisions are made via "death by consensus" so moving ahead on any project, activity or otherwise takes far too long to get action on.

    As much as we have some great products to offer, we do not have the ability to take any of them to market adequately. So new sales consistently suffer and the overall company growth is stagnated. New business has primarily been due to renewal of existing contracts or vertical sales through existing clients.

    There's a general lack of accountability from middle and senior management to their teams which tends to create a passive-aggressive kind of atmosphere. Everything is fine or the world is on fire...there's no in-between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that simply renaming business units will not solve our problems - this has occurred several times in my short tenure. Blow up the entire management structure from top to bottom. Remove all the matrixes leadership and keep it simple. Everyone has a title of manager or VP although many of these individuals don't even have another person reporting to them. Get some fresh perspective in the company to really drive accountability and challenge new thinking. Set actual company objectives and drive the people of this organization to get results.

    Figure out how to make new sales happen. We have two tremendous products right now that we've been trying to sell for over a year now. I can't fathom why we can't figure this out.

    Exit the European market altogether, it's a drain on company resources and we consistently lose money from this region quarter after quarter.

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

    Pros

    Good company, but got messed up in merger with Sperry.

    Cons

    Take 2 $3.5 B companies with 15,000 employees and wind up with one $3.5 Billion company with 7,500 employees. Lost half the work force and have the revenues, thus losing a lot of customers. Dumb, greedy management on both companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think thru the mergers in the future because this one is a failure
