    Once a Great British Company, which became an awful place to work.

    Pros

    Most frontline Logica/CGI technical/delivery staff will say that it was your immediate colleagues and the camaraderie that made Logica once a great place to work. This often led to a level of motivation and commitment that drove too many of Logica’s successes. However this was sadly rarely rewarded by a self-serving top heavy layer of management.

    Cons

    Don’t waste your time working here for too long if you have any technical ability: 1. You won’t be recognised or rewarded by their greedy bonus hungry 'blame cultured' project managers, who have often brown-nosed their way into said role because they weren’t capable enough to do real work; 2. There is a very ill thought out internal job market form of resource management, and most of the project work that CGI wins is quite poor, so you’ll often end up doing antiquated legacy work instead of what you were originally recruited for (i.e. Java/.Net etc.). 3. As in my case, I got fed up on my last project and left because I was forced to work away from home for long periods, worked hours that flaunted the European guidelines, and was refused overtime after originally being promised it (unfortunately not in writing by a very two-faced PM).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your front-line staff, as most of your good experienced staff have left the sinking ship a long time ago to actually get salaries in line with what we're worth in the market. You now have a load of clueless fresh graduates that have no experienced people to mentor them, and who are actually an embarrassment to put in front of the client.
