    CSC - the Company

    What does CSC do for a living, anyway? I assume they're a European company?

    They are Headquartered in Europe I believe. But they are multinational. I just had a friend start working with them. Here in MD, he is doing government contracting. It is mostly IT work (he is working on IPV6 stuff).

    I worked for their canadian division for over a year. It was at an aerospace company. Its not bad working for csc but i find they have too many regulations/paperwork/etc. If i wanted to order any servers/tools/computers/etc i had to order them from csc and wait forever instead of ordering them directly from ibm or other local suppliers. If csc looses the contract with the company, you dont go with csc. You are at the mercy of the company - they decide if they want to keep you.

    CSC is Computer Sciences Corporation (homepage), a multinational company headquartered in El Segundo, CA. Other major sites are in Singapore (Asian headquarters), the UK (European headquarters), and Australia. A more detailed list of the contries they operate in is here.

    As their name suggests, they work in the IT field, specializing in consulting, systems integration, and outsourcing. (overview) Founded in 1959, CSC was the first software company to be listed on the NYSE (1968). (historical tidbits) CSC evidently is big on aerospace, with an astronaut representing CSC on a space shuttle mission in 1995 and a hand in the FAA's air traffic control system and in the software for the Hubble telescope, among other projects.

    As far as their financials are concerned, the company is a $10 billion corporation still listed on the NYSE. (ticker CSC) Its stock has performed pretty well in the past few years. And its projected earnings for the 2007 fiscal year is about $700 million. CSC is one of the companies in the S&P 500 benchmark.
