Global information technology company Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), based in Virginia, employed around 70,000 people worldwide as of April this year. Revenues have fallen each year since the company’s fiscal 2011. In its most recent fiscal year, CSC reported revenues of $12.2 billion, much lower than the $14.5 billion in revenue it reported in 2011. Earlier this month, the company agreed to pay $190 million to settle fraud charges with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition, numerous current and former executives were required to pay large fines.
CSC employees are on the whole relatively dissatisfied, according to employee reviews. “The work-life balance is a joke” was among the most frequent negative reviews on Glassdoor. Another common complaint from current and former employees was the high turnover rate even among management positions. In addition, CEO Mike Lawrie had an approval rating of just 37%.
10. Dollar General (NYSE: DG)
> Rating: 2.7
> Number of reviews: 1,600

> Industry: Discount Stores
Discount retailer Dollar General received an average rating of 2.7 out of 5 on Glassdoor. Just 41% of the current and former employees who submitted reviews said they would recommend working at the company to their friends.
Complaints about working for Dollar General were in line with many of the other low-skill, client-facing jobs at companies on our list. The most common complaints included long hours, low pay, and poor management. However, feelings about corporate management may soon improve at the company. Earlier this month, Todd Vasos was named the company’s new CEO. he has not been in the role long enough to have a significant impact on the company, but preliminary reviews at Glassdoor have been positive so far.
