Need to remove people who can't produce at their current level.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Fairfax, VA

Prosmultiple locations
reasonable salary
Benefits are reasonable for consulting.
Will let you work flexible hours.
US staff is isolated from Montreal

ConsIt depends on the project you are on, some are great, some are just mismanaged, poor management is tolerated.
Getting promoted is based on being on the right project, if they are growing you can get promoted.
too many people are promoted and then can't produce, need to have a review structure in place to remove them or demote them.
Montreal Management, while successful, do not understand how to make the US consulting more successful
CGI does not have strong C-level access at the companies they work for, so they tend to get more technical and minor consulting gigs, unlike Accenture or IBM.
Strong outsourcing focus, yet they are very weak in the field.
If you are not on a project, you have two weeks to find a new role, otherwise you are laid off. Dumb to say the least.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of people who can't produce at their level. maybe get rid of the bottom 2% every year.
