CSC is in the IT contracts business

CSC is one of many companies in the world of commercial and federal IT contracts. If you understand the business culture around IT contracts, then you will understand CSC.
Personally, I am not a fan of IT contract culture, but I don't hold it against CSC. Essentially, they are out to make a profit off of you, not off of a product. Although you may have good teams, it feels like there is a lack of personal investment. Many "fall through the cracks," meaning when a contract is over you are at the mercy of internal mobility.
If you are around long enough to see several leadership changes, you will see the wheel get reinvented each time. If you are around long enough to see several contract changes, doubly so. The combination squashes productivity to a pulp, and oh by the way, I hope you didn't develop any sense of attachment to any of the work you did!
CSC's mantra is for their teams to "perform brilliantly." Well, they often do, but it has felt like it's in spite of CSC, not because of CSC.
There is a disconnect between upper management and everyone else
