This should be a last resort if you're desperate for a job
Project Manager/Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  North East30 May 2018
This could be a great place to work if they stop seeing employees as a number on a spreadsheet. There is little in the way of investment here in employees or tech. Everything is done on a shoestring and quality is lacking. If you want training you have to do it yourself online. Its almost impossible to carry out your job as the expert resources have dwindled so much. Turnover of staff is massive as everyone feels so frustrated. The customers are leaving in their droves and no wonder when often projects rely on one person or the required skills often aren't available at all to carry out the work. It's trial and error and can be very embarrassing when dealing with the exasperated customer who is paying a fortune for this rubbish service.
Pros
can work from home if you have the right manager otherwise none
Cons
constant threat of redundancy, poor management with no backbone, losing contracts so no long term future

Life Consuming
Infrastructure Technician (Current Employee) –  Peterlee24 May 2018
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to come home from work after a long day, and just want to shut yourself in your bedroom to avoid interacting with anyone else? Then this job is perfect for you because if you plan on having a life working at DXC, you're going to be extremely disappointed.

For starters, half of the staff are lazy, the leadership is generally in shambles, and then you have senior agents who think they run the place just because they are "higher" than you.

I can wholeheartedly say that this job is awful for career advancement, there are hardly any opportunities to progress and honestly, they hire more apprentices than anything else (I still think they do it for the cheap labour).

My recommendation? You would be better off spending your time working towards a degree in University or doing any other job.

Unmotivated and overworked
Service Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Peterlee23 May 2018
Poorly supported systems, most of the time over complicated also. All support processes very unclear. I would advise anyone considering working for the company to do better things with their time, such as further education or holding out for a better job if possible.
Pros

Went downhill after HPE became DXC
Test Analyst (Former Employee) –  Hampshire19 April 2018
Started out with HPE, salary was low but the company was good. After merger with CSC, DXC quickly became a nightmare company to work for. Constantly trying to do more with less and any chance of a pay rise or bonus never materialises despite company trying to pretend that the good times are just around the corner. If you want to work for DXC, make sure that you start on a good salary (there will be no increases), don't want career progression (I wont happen) and can except continuous threat of losing your job.
Pros
None really
Cons
No pay rises, no training, no progression.

Managed Service, fair variety in technologys to work on
Database Administrator (Former Employee) –  Rochester18 April 2018
Used to be quite a good company to work for, good team, and generally helpful and knowledgeable people in all lines of service, however unfortunately in recent years things have gone down hill with the constant threat of redundancy's, making the work atmosphere a bit grey.
Most of the time you were left to get on with the job, certainly the managers I worked for treated you as an adult, and allowed you to manage your own work flow, this does mean you have to be self motivated, but once you have built up a network of decent project managers, who will come to you and offer work.
Pros
Good kiosk benefits, and a fair bit of autonomy.
Cons
Poor work atmospher towards the end of my tearm, and a lot of people leaving.

great place to work
Offering Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London2 April 2018
No day is the same at DXC. The company has a great culture to offer with new challenges, new opportunities and hence scope for new achievements. The company has repositioned itself with focussed number of offerings across 9 families to build-sell and deliver.

Hateful management, jnept leadership.
Marketing Director (Current Employee) –  London1 April 2018
DXC is a shambles and an awful place to work. The company is run by a despot and the global head of HR is totally useless and out of her depth. No payrises are allowed. No bonuses are allowed. Anyone who challenges the leader is sacked. If you are desperate foe a job then give it a try. If you value your sanity or wish to be treated with respect then go elsewhere!
Pros
None
Cons
Cruel, management, no respect for staff, no communication.

Nothing has changed, empty promises.

Great job but redundancy threat...
Storage Engineer (Current Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear12 January 2018

Pros
Good Pay, Flexible Working
Cons
No Training, Redundancies, Poor Planning

Asset/Cost which column are you
IT specialist / Tester (Current Employee) –  East Midlands25 November 2017
Very much driven by cutting costs at any cost, rather than "how can we be better in business and utilise our skilled staff to win! and grow and in turn reward them"- hence demoralized staff - no chance of bonuses/rises - the feeling that at some point that after we have put in that effort, delivered and done a great job...you are going to be replaced by an offshore cheaper "asset" and you become a "cost" as we feel this is the end game - even the management can no longer sell the "keep it up chaps" approach and you see the look of someone that cannot offer carrots and staff that cannot be beaten any more with corperate talk sticks - avoid if wanting a career - ready to go and looking forward to getting a package if they ever have the budget!
Pros
Great core staff ( reducing every quarter!)
Cons
smoke n mirrors management talk, no promotion, rises, bonuses etc

Senior Project Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Aldershot25 November 2017
Enjoyable but challenging role. Good company to work for. I was part of the old CSC Computer Sciences that merged with HP. Unless you work for an account there is lots of traveling involved. Good training opportunities.

Do not join
Service Delivery engineer (Current Employee) –  Nationwide, midlands21 November 2017
Just when you think it can’t get any worse it does. Rewards managers/sales but not engineers. Avoid like the plague. Do not join unless you are really really desperate. 3 weeks notice needed to travel even though I’m a mobile engineer. Treated like idiots by managers and skill sets not used and ignored. And if you want a pay rise forget it.
Pros
None
Cons
No pay rise, thankless. No training/advancement

New and challenged organisation
Account Delivery Lead (Current Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne21 November 2017
DXC was formed out of the merger of the enterprise services organisation from Hewlett Packard Enterprise with CSC.

It is very early days for the organisation and a lot of changes and redundancies have occurred over the last year which can be expected. It is difficult to say how successful the company will be and how important the UK will be to its global organisation but there are certainly worse places to work.
Pros
Good people and management
Cons
Lack of pay rise opportunities company wide

Look elsewhere...
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear17 November 2017
Sadly, joining wasn't the best decision I ever made - it contained examples of all of the negativity and issues encountered in all the other jobs I'd ever held, only concentrated into one place.
Pros
Good colleagues...
Cons
Cut, cut, cut - directionless and appalling management.

Great opportunity for business partnering
Finance lead for an account in Defence (Former Employee) –  Hook, United Kingdom13 November 2017
I worked as an individual contributor and lead a key account in Defence.

It was a wonderful experience to work with knowledgeable professional business partners in a fast paced ever changing environment!

The challenge I faced most was a change in business partner several times during my tenure but that only added to my experience as had the responsibility and opportunity to provide continuity and support to the account and build on my experience.

A big international company.
Storage engineer (Current Employee) –  Chorley13 November 2017
A good company to work for, no prospects of promotion or job security after a merge with HPE. Managers at the company are all 'doom and gloom' and moral in the office is low.

Disappointing workplace, poor management, endless restructuring
Web & Middleware System Engineer, Microsoft (Current Employee) –  Scotland17 October 2017
DXC was formed from the merger between CSC and HPES in March 2017. Unfortunately things have only got worse in an already very challenging workplace. The company is set on a huge restructuring program and widespread job cuts are ongoing every quarter. Staff morale is incredibly low and projects and services are floundering as a result.
Cons
Endless cost cutting and redundancy programs, poor pay
