    Cons

    Lacked quality senior managers.
    Lack of staffing for project teams always an issue.

    HP acquisition expected to make matters worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The acquisition by HP can make matters worse or a lot better. Find the talented experienced outsource managers and work with them to make the outsourced business services a place people want to work. If you introduce the HP way it wont work.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sydney

    I worked at Electronic Data Systems

    Pros

    Commited to training and upskilling employees.
    Opportunity for advancement if you know where to look.
    Looks good on a resume.
    Great colleagues.

    Cons

    Low pay relative to comparable positions in other companies. Pay increases designed to keep employees, not reward performance. The way to get reasonable salaries at EDS is to leave and return after 6 months to the same or better job at the current market rate. It's well known on the inside that EDS should be your first and third job... don't wait it out for the salary you deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the low morale
