    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

    The reason you work at CGI Federal is because you want to advance your career in IT and appreciate your work life balance. CGI Federal is a great company to work for, large enough that they can be flexible without having you feel just like a number.

    Cons

    Opportunity to work outside of the Federal government contracts. Being in the Federal space it is difficult to get experience in the corporate side of the business (CGI and CGI Federal are separate companies).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move people around more and give the younger members more responsibilities.
