Productive and awesome workplace with good growth opportunities
CSC has given me all what I could expect from any of my dream companies. Despite of being from electrical branch, I got all help and support from my mentors to be able to handle such a high reputation job at the beginning of my career.
An excellent work culture, with decent colleagues has helped me a lot in achieving what I did in past 3 yrs (passed away like 3 days). Rated 1 (top rating) every year, recognized and awarded for my performance by CSC global management. Have constantly received client's appreciations as well. Got to interact with the top management folks in client environment be it Finance Lead, Commercial Manager, Account General Manager, Chief Technology officer etc.
Having a skill set of being a good people manager got to manage/support a team of 12 Solution Managers, responsible for their quality check, mentor-ship, problem solving etc.
I have learnt a great deal from CSC be it in terms of professional life or knowledge pertaining to the work I do, basically IT infra related , Client handling, Customer relationship management, People management, CR solutioning, Techno-commercial knowledge etc.
Learn and grow is what CSC believe in. Apart from just work, you have a lot to explore in terms of extra curricular activities.
ProsGood work life, cab facilities, great place to grow and learn.
Perfect balance between work and other activities including a fest, games etc.
My day usually started at around 1 PM in the afternoon (as I was aligned to a French client). I had meetings every alternate day shortly after I reached. The meeting included people from various verticals within our project and it gave an overview of our progress towards an issue or the project deadlines. I was responsible for the maintenance application infrastructure which had business critical applications being used by key end users. There I learnt a lot about the server side operations and how applications run. The hardest part of my job was the resolution of critical issues, the normal resolution time for such issues being about 20 minutes. So this was quite challenging. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to interact with people from various countries who were supporting the same account. Thought the job was challenging, but because of nice co-workers and the organisational structure, it was a good learning curve for me.
ProsBeing exposed to multi-national culture within the same team, responsible for critical issues, good visibility in the project, enhancement in technical expertise.
I worked in DXC for 2 years and those 2 years were a great learning opportunity.
My typical day-in and day-out used to be offering 24X7 production support (back-end data). My role was to coordinate with various teams and raise support ticket for all issues, analyze root cause and assist in efficient resolution of all production processes.
My take away from this job was analytical thinking, ability to prioritise the tasks, handling people and pressurised situations and time management.
The most enjoyable part of the job is coordinating with different business teams and IT groups and the hardest would be having to do over time when the incidents are many and work on holidays/weekends as the support will be 24X7.
Overall, The job is definitely more interesting, as one will get to learn about the applications, networks and servers.

The work culture in DXC is inspiring. The policy makers have put up a lot of effort to put forth an employee centric policy. The company provides all facilities that an employee would require at a workplace. It allows indoor activities like table tennis, townhalls, billiards, carrom, etc but do not boast upon outdoor activities, which essentially means minimal to less fun at workplace - strictly business.
Medical facilities are good and easily available.
It is a good place to gain experience however, there are no paid training sessions. Only classroom and online trainings are available.
Management is co-operative and friendly, biased at times.
The appraisal policy of the company is heart breaking. There is no process for classification of talent and hard work, at the end of the day, it is what matters for any employee.
One good thing about the company is that it allows employees to avail leaves at their discretion.
I worked with DXC (Primarily known as CSC) for around 3 years.
An excellent place to work with ! I learned and groomed a lot while working with the Core Networks team of CSC known as CGEN and the main quality of this team was, that they were approached only for any kind of Priority Escalation Issues in Networks. A team of 35 engineers across globe was responsible to keep the Backbone of CSC Networks Running Smoothly. And I was blessed to be a part of that team !
Excellent work culture. Excellent People and colleagues including team members and Managers.
Hardest part was like we were always sitting on the edge of getting any priority issue at anytime of the day being CSC working in almost all time zones and almost every part of the globe.
And this was also the enjoyable part of my job that we never failed to resolve any issue !
ProsExcellent and very friendly work culture, Work From Home Freedom

Nice and healthy work enviroment. As my stint with CSC has run past six complete months I see this accomplishment induction as a much needed note to my learning and achievements in Monitoring process and to epitomize my journey here so far. As a new kid in CSC I was subject to a complex process which was dependent on the resource. My first hand experience would not be known around anymore.
Training - We were tended to an Induction and Process training which marked the gentle start to ever exasperating periods at it. Communication training, which followed was a good brush up with our second language English. New Employee Celebration was a good way of getting acquainted with all the vertical heads of the various departments and certification part was a cake walk thereafter.
I'm not a full-employee but am a contractor, and, when I was hired on with many others, the department I was in was going through a major shift as they had just been bought from Conduent and became DXC Technology (now Veritas Capital come the end of the year apparently). At first, the department was hectic and had trouble prioritizing training the new employees over doing their work, so most us spent a good 60% of our time for our first two months getting paid to just twiddle our thumbs at sit at our desks. Come the three month mark, and that's when many of us began getting work, but this is where the problems started seeping out as well. At the beginning of the month, the department supervisor brought every contractor into the department and went on a spiel that was interpreted by most of us to have been a promise of employment come the end of our contracts. Upon follow-up, that information fell through. In fact, out of all of the contractors (eight in total) that got hired alongside me, only two got hired on permanently, and, of those two, only one puts out work that is far superior to all of us other contractors; the other one puts out similar work to the rest of us (which is hard work from us all), but she clearly had more opportunities presented to her by having simply had the luck of sharing an office with two of the leads of on of the department teams, of which they were going to be shorthanded in the coming months. The rest of us have either had our work throttled ent

Mis-managed, understaffed, insecure workplace
After working 50-60hr weeks for 2 years for this company with no vacation, I was greeted with a surprise visit from my supervisor with "administrative leave" paperwork before being let go along with a few other people supposedly because the client they had a contract with had the power to fire people in our company whenever they felt like it. I lost a week's worth of sick time and had to pay for health care for 2 weeks before even getting my last pay check as they pretended I might actually keep the position. Before being advised I was let go, I was interrogated by some French Canadian upper management guy as if I was personally to blame for the mass layoff they were facing. There was no warning to this layoff even though management knew about the possibility MONTHS IN ADVANCE! If you're interested in working in I.T., DO NOT START HERE! DXC will leave a bad taste in your mouth for years to come.
The worst part about this company is having 12 different people calling you, emailing, texting you, messaging you with demands about progress, inventory status, ticket status, etc, etc with no one manager taking responsibility for assisting you in doing the job of 5 people. In fact even though I was assigned a manager at first, I was assigned 6 different managers within just a few months and at some points I had no manager at all.
The pay was abysmal at best for the amount of work they expect you to do, and they lend no human resource assistance in keeping up with their hundreds o

A good place to gain experience, it may not be a big name, but it is a global player. Consider it a place to gain specific experience - don't expect support, don't expect development and don't expect longevity,
The global mission is basically the old "shareholder value is all" sweat and dump game.
The merger of CSC, UXC, Fruition, and HPES is still more in name than fact and the complete lack of integration of companies, systems or processes has made a jumbled mess to navigate or be productive within.
There are some really good staff with great skills in this company ... a few teams have a great bond and are more family than colleagues. However, mostly it seems that staff are either trapped or lured in by obfuscation, omission and outright lies.
Likewise, some really good local managers exist, but they are effectively drowned out by the global executive attitude towards staff and the drive for ever increasing and unrealistic metrics.
There is a nervous and toxic culture based on a mix of police state policies, cuts in benefits, no pay raises (they were disconnected from the annual appraisal system and if given - have rarely provided any increases [under 4%] over the last five years) and on top of all of that, there is the continuous threat of restructuring, divestitures and redundancies which means most staff spend far more time waiting or volunteering for the axe to fall upon their necks. Why would anyone try to be creative or offer any supplementary e

Aplikowałam na stanowisko Junior HR & Payroll Administration Specialist with Italian. Proces rekrutacji trwał w nieskończoność. Najpierw prawie godzinna rozmowa telefoniczna, podczas której rekruterka zadała mi mnóstwo pytań i sprawdziła mój poziom znajomości języka angielskiego. Potem przez jakiś miesiąc zero odpowiedzi, nawet już zapomniałam, że brałam udział w rekrutacji. Pewnego dnia zadzwonił telefon i pewien pan zaprosił mnie na rozmowę kwalifikacyjną w siedzibie firmy. Poszłam, straciłam kolejną godzinę na rozmowę z dwoma rodowitymi Włochami. Obiecano mi dać odpowiedź w ciągu dwóch tygodni. Po mniej więcej 3 tygodniach otrzymałam automatyczną odpowiedź, że niestety nie zakwalifikowałam się. Już pogodziłam się z decyzją rekruterów. Po upływie kolejnych kilku tygodni znowu niespodziewanie zadzwonił telefon. Była to ta sama pani rekruterka, z którą odbyłam rozmowę po włosku w siedzibie firmy. Zapytała, czy dalej jestem zainteresowana tą pracą, jaki jest mój okres wypowiedzenia i jakie są moje oczekiwania finansowe. Kiedy odpowiedziałam na to ostatnie pytanie, rekruterka zaczęła pytać, czy możemy jeszcze negocjować w tej sprawie (a wcale nie były wygórowane). Potem zapytałam, dlaczego dostałam od nich maila z odmowną odpowiedzią jakiś czas temu. Rekruterka bardzo się zdziwiła i obiecała to zweryfikować i dać mi znać. Do tej pory nikt nie oddzwonił, a minął już ponad miesiąc. Najśmieszniejsze jest to, że ta sama oferta pracy jest dostępna od kilku miesięcy. Ta firma jest po

This place is decent if you have a good manager, luckily I do, however the department is becoming more pressured and stressful every day.
Training is lacking though, even for apprentices, there simply aren't enough staff to train new people after multiple rounds of redundancies, this in turn has impacted morale. The staff that have been there for years don't have anything good to say about the company. This can give you a jaded view of the company if you take them at face value.
The people generally are okay but there seems to be a massive disconnect between senior management and the 'workforce on the ground'. They've made loads of staff redundant and brought lots of apprentices/contractors in with hardly any fully trained permanent staff to train them - then expect results, apprentices are even training contractors, that's how little staff they have left that are fully trained. Personally I haven't had much training, you basically have to wing it and hope for the best.
The working environment is very stressful and all management care about is tickets, tickets, tickets. The supervisors are generally very understanding though, it's the higher ups that are the issue, but they put pressure on the supervisors to reduce the ticket queue, so inevitably to people at the very bottom of the food chain including apprentices end up pressured, too much in my opinion.
It's like they don't understand that an apprentice is there to learn and not to be a ticket solving robot, if
I did appreciate the flex hours that we were allowed to have so we could work our hours instead of having to use vacation or sick time.
Other than that, the company was extremely disorganized. Very little training, and there was no dedicated trainer, so everyone had a different way to process things. In addition, the written directions to process things were extremely vague (leading to a lot of different interpretations), or having directions changing as much as several times in a day.
No raises or COLA given in over five years.
I started out as a temp with this company - the temp agency sent me for an interview, and I was hired. I applied for a position in my department when it was posted about a year later but didn't get it, even though the boss said she was happy with my work. About 4 months later, another position in the department became open, and I applied for it. I finally got a permanent position with the company, But the crazy thing was the boss said she didn't realize I had all the related experience and related education. I was going to flip - it was evident she never looked at my resume the first two times it was presented to her.
In addition, if there are any work concerns or issues, there company is reactive rather than proactive, and really won't take any action to correct things if they could get away with it. And if anything facility-wise breaks (sink, microwave), it is months before it is corrected.
The company also doesn't invest a lot in
I have worked for 13 different companies since 1993. I can honestly say that my experience with DXC has been the worst. Revolving door upper and mid management, no raises, no oversight over local onsite management, poor review process, overall lack of common sense to their organizational structure and processes.
Typical Day at work: Login from home, do reports, check email, attend an occasional meeting. My job was to internally support those assigned to the customer.
DXC is a combination of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise employees and CSC employees, merged into one. The cause of that merger was thousands of "pink slips" to be issued for duplicate work. The organization has at least 3 different time-keeping systems and Human Resource managers are expected to navigate all three.
Prior to becoming DXC, "the name on the door" for me was Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Prior to that, it was Hewlett Packard, and prior to that (before my time) it was EDS. Many of my older co-workers had been EDS legacy employees.
What I learned: When a company shows you what it's like, it will never change (positive or negative), so if you don't like it, get out.
Workplace Culture: Low morale due to lack of raises, revolving HR management, thousands of firings, and no advancement opportunities.
Hardest Part of the Job: Accepting the fact that a workplace can exist that has zero accountability to its managers, and that internal groups designed to deal with corrupt and abusive management are just
ProsWorking from home, unlimited time off
ConsPoor management, no raises, no opportunity to move within the company.
We were required to come in 15 minutes before our shift started to work out of our email without being paid. The only way to move up or get treated fairly is to know someone in management or be willing to work for free. The metrics were unrealistic. Management doesn't call back clients who needed extra assistance or needed to complain which means most of our calls were providers trying to get ahold of management. You don't have time to call people back when you tell them you are going to. This leads to a hostile work environment with providers calling into the call center incredibly angry. You have 1 - 2 weeks to learn everything about AR Medicaid and how the system works which is unrealistic. They do not train their reps and then employees get reprimanded for trying to assist the reps that haven't been trained properly. They will also lay off their vets to hire people off the street at a lower salary and so they don't have to pay for their retirement. Their disability people are impossible to work with. You can have short term disability and be paid for it and then be denied for long term disability. While that is happening, you will not be paid. You cannot look for a job to supplement your income or you will be denied and will have to go back to work full time with no exceptions. You just have to wait for them to approve or deny. Since you have no income coming in and you are technically on disability, DXC does not provide insurance. You have to pay for it out of your own p
CSC, as it then was, described itself as a "highly-matrixed organisation". The nearest I got to working out what this meant in practice was that every decision, particularly with regard to individual reward, had to be approved by at least two people, and probably no more than one of those people would know you, personally.
I joined what was then CSC after a transfer from Accenture. We were told the culture rested on individual effort, which I am fine with, but there seemed to be some complexity to gaining access to decision-making managers that I never quite mastered. The exception to this was when I applied for GBP 2000 funding for a data protection course, to which senior colleagues said I had "no chance". It was approved at the first time of asking.
I was grateful to CSC for taking over the NHS engagement from Accenture, whose tenure had always been obviously unsustainable. But too often I found people saying one thing and doing another. This culminated with my being interviewed for and offered another role on an outsourcing project in Manchester. This collapsed because of lack of internal funding. In other words, they offered me a job that didn't exist.
In hindsight, I did know one person who had achieved the very difficult feat of gaining promotion from Senior Professional to Manager (the equivalent of going from the Championship to the Premier League). I should have persuaded him to let me go through his application documents, and explain in deta
