    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 Management

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

    Pros

    CGI provides a great working environment and respects their employees. I have enjoyed my time at CGI very, very much.

    Cons

    As with many other consulting firms, there is sometimes a disconnect when it comes to communication, perhaps due to the employee being located at the client site.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a big help if communication was improved so employees do not feel so isolated from their management.

    Pros

    Like other gov't subcontracting companies in DC. Depends on the project you are assign on. Hard to roll off unless you push for it. Education and career advancement is what you put in. Mgmt likes to have a top-down repor.

    Cons

    -Easier access and better education availability -Hard to local anything related to HR or etc on company's intranet -People keep to themselves or really proective of their task (think office space scene: meeting with the Bobs'
