Great educational system for project managers. Management views people as just a revenue point. Manager didn't bother to find out what I did since I was staff augmentation to the customer. Management concentrated on reorganizing and downsizing. Management alienated key customer personnel.

CSC is an interesting place to work with lots of change and challenges. Excellent people work here however it is a culture of each your own an off-shoring which creates an environment and a culture of uncertainty.
Supervisor - Operations (Former Employee) – USA – April 5, 2017
The best I can say about CSC is it's a job. I initially accepted a role there due to the fact that they required US Citizens to work for them in their various roles, vs other companies I had worked for that would outsource to India or Brazil at the drop of a hat. That worked great until they discovered that Puerto Rico's labor market was dirt cheap and still fulfilled their ITAR requirements. Combine that with an impending HPE merger and it's not looking like a very strong place to have a career. Culturally, it lacked compared to some of the other companies I was honored to be a part of. People generally showed up, did their job and didn't care beyond that. Compensation is slightly lower than industry standard, both for staff and management, though their vacation policy is one of the best I've seen.
CSC Corporation overall has a lot to offer and continues to be an innovative, progressive and IT Industry Ieader.

CSC is a good place to work ! However, certain divisions are currently undergoing a restructuring initiative which includes re-evaluation of strategic goals, objectives and budgets.. This has resulted in periodic RIFs ( Reduction in Force) which have impacted job security.
Good work environment. Team members suport each other to achieve group / team objectives, Management is flexible and strides to meet personal needs of employees.
Prolong Raise freezes, Frerquent Reducion in Force initiatives, Freudent Turn overs, Management Recognition of a job well done could use improvement.

Level One / Level Two Tech Support Service Desk (Current Employee) – Coppell, TX – March 28, 2017
There is virtually no communication between management and employees, new hires are thrown on phones without adequate training for "training by fire", your schedule will change without notice, and every minute of every single day is strictly monitored and micromanaged.
Mandatory overtime for months on end is common, as is switching employees to overnight shifts without warning or time to prepare.
On the bright side, the company knows its turnover rate is incredibly high and they are always reluctant to hire new people despite being woefully understaffed, so management tends to turn a blind eye to things like watching Netflix when it's not busy.
They will also put off converting contractors to full hires for as long as humanly possible, and then some.
short breaks, never converts contractors, understaffed, overworked
Event Coordinator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 28, 2017
It's an okay level 1 starting job for people who needs their first job. Be prepared to do a lot of standing around & answering questions for patrons new to different sites you may work. You assign yourself to different upcoming job openings that can fit around your schedule. This is not a Monday-Friday type of job & the starting pay rate is $8.50
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – March 28, 2017
When first transferred over to CSC from another company I expected a Borg atmosphere, a firm way to do things. It was quite the opposite where the main culture was multi-tasking and not completing items was the rule of the day. Raises were almost none existent. The typical day at work was what you could do to eventually transfer your position to an off-shore person. The most enjoyable part of the job was working from home.
