Worked at worse companies but they could be better

Customer Engineer (Current Employee)
Canberra

I have been working at Unisys full-time for less than a year

ProsGlobal company with opportunities to work outside your home country, Partner discount and benefits scheme, leave entitlements, flexible working hours, local management

Consthe biggest drawback to working here is the lack of training and experience of some staff combined with a lack of communication and guidance. the training most staff receive is only as good as the person who trained the person who trained them

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify the processes for accessing the online employee portal and reporting time sheets and leave. Have a suitably trained and experienced training team.

A great place to work once you settle in

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sydney

I have been working at Unisys full-time for more than a year

ProsUnisys don't just talk about work place flexibility, they live it and breath it, which makes a nice change. It is an environment of "we trust you will get on and do it". You need to be fairly self motivated to work here and get your head around a matrix organisation but once you do, it all falls into place.

ConsHaving such great flexibility means the fibre that can hold teams together (i.e. the social aspect) can begin to come apart at the seams. As a company they need to gather people together more often and work on encouraging employees to connect more often.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Teams

Global Director PMO (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at Unisys full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat knowledgable teams, strong work ethic.

Consleadership focused on CYA. Selling service line / product line not in the portfolio. Not addressing Client issues, Quality mentality not in practice. Quality improvement tools are not exployted by Accts. and delivery. More afraid of doing it wrong, than making it right.

Advice to Senior Managementsafe work environment build empowered work force. discourage adversarial leadership. Great potential, start selling Quality !

Great place to work in...!!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Unisys full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have been working in Unisys for 2.6 yrs now.
- Great working environment.
- Flexible timings.
- Average or more compensation. Satisfactory

ConsThey have good some very good projects in various sectors but if you get into a very legacy application project then the scope of much development work is completely Nil all will be maintenance, support and qualification hence it hampers your career growth. You have to put extra effort on your own to learn new things at home because you won't get much knowledge on job.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor employees working in Maintenance projects the management should look for giving them opportunities for new development work also so that it does not hamper personal growth.
Cost cutting should be to a certain extent. Should think of employee's fun at work as well atleast in a year.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
