    Slow to innovate

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are mostly very customer focussed which ensurs a high quality of service delivery and high customer satisfaction. Customers rarely complain about the standard of services

    ConsUltra conservative, risk averse. There are significant process "hoops" that must be jumped through for very basic sales activities such as unsolicited proposals.

    Advice to Senior Managementadopt a more entrepreneurial culture that is vibrant and not so stodgy

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a Tier 1 - which offers more opportunity for good staff to get noticed and advance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood opportunities for advancement.
    Good pay for the more senior roles.
    Number of staff who have stayed with the company for many years (well over 20 years).. suggesting it can't be too bad a place to work

    ConsSalary reviews do not occur each year...hence where some staff have worked in same roles for over five years and haven't had a salary review in over two years it can result in churn

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore regular personable communication by company leaders to staff will only serve to help build a stronger more cohesive and collaborative culture.

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

    Bottom of the Pile

    Field Technician (Current Employee) Brisbane

    ProsTeam is good (workmates, that is)
    Job flexibility

    ConsContractor rates are only barely livable
    Management by abdication

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncentives are backwards - why am I being encouraged to finish work quickly but not well?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worked at worse companies but they could be better

    Customer Engineer (Current Employee) Canberra

    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

    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.

    Dissapointing. Company shows little respect for the individual.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sydney

    ProsInternational Company
    Some good products and solutions.

    ConsLack of dignity and respect.
    Poor career options.
    Not allowed to challenge the status quo.
    No work/life balance.
    Management lacks people skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is the people that make up a company. Treat them with respect, not just as a employment number.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    One of the best companies to retire but not a company to catapult your career to the next level

    Solutions Architect (Current Employee) Reston, VA (US)

    ProsFlexible work environment, Good HR Practices, Initial Compensation offered is good as per industry standard.

    ConsOld and myopic management who have lost track of what is happening around and where the industry is heading ! Negative politics and resistance towards outsourcing which leads to cost inflation and subsequently looses grounds to the other players in the industry who substantially outsources work to offer a very competitive price to it's clientele. Marketing style is that of the mid-80's. Employees are not trained on new stuff, especially when the industry is going through lot of paradigm shifts. Creativity and new ideas are seldom awarded and adopted !

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes , adapt or perish !!
