    Pros

    Good folks to work with. Management / Team members were helpful and made work not feel like work.
    Corporate environment balances work and personal life very well.
    Goals are reasonable and well thought out for optimum performance.
    Career growth was emphasized.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. Just regular nit-picking stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the balance between office and personal life of employees. This really helped me want to give 100% to my work.

    Pros

    Great support network; offers plenty of opportunity for personal growth and training, solid benefits.

    Cons

    Not a lot of paid time off but flexible enough to be able to take care of personal things. I did work independently so sometimes I did feel a little left out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a little bit more paid time off. Take into account time zone differences.

    The best reason to work at CGI Federal is the people!

    The hardest thing is having to deal with yearly contract volatility, but that happens at any contract company.

    Keep up the good work!
