- the managers and directors are very COOPERATE
- you always feel like you are a number and not good because when you do something bad they are on you and when you do something good they just do not care and say like "everybody is doing that"

    I worked at CGI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mostly stuff carried over from Logica like good benefits package, good people (although many now gone...) and working from home flexibility is useful sometimes (although you lose a sense of team camaraderie if you overdo it).

    Cons

    The CGI intranet and tools (e.g. timesheets, expenses, PM reporting) is onerous indeed. It was frustrating to find myself spending more time on clerical and administrative tasks than real value-adding work for our clients. Following the takeover, many excellent and longstanding Logica colleagues were eventually made redundant, regardless of how vital and valuable they currently were to their projects. The constant force feeding of the CGI 'dream' and being 'members' soon became monotonous. People seem a lot more overworked and stressed than prior to the takeover. Too much responsibility, workload and pressure is put on the PM and not enough on senior staff including the programme/delivery managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intranet including internal tools and processes (particularly PM ones) are too complex and time consuming. Need to simply these things to free up staff to spend more of their time and attention on real value-adding work for your clients.
