Senior Consultant

Senior Consultant (Former Employee) Fairfax, VA

ProsGreat coworkers. Free soda / vending machines. Flexible (for a time) on the ability to work from home.

Cons- Poor planning and adherence to SDLC best practices. I was on a very high profile project, with intense demands, yet no true project plan or standardized procedures were ever followed, despite being CMMI level 4.

- Extremely convoluted management structure. I received direction from approximately 15 different managers at different levels, often receiving conflicting orders. There was a reorganization of the project 4 times, each time making things more chaotic.

- Lack of communication from management and between teams. The project was very siloed, resulting in teams often coming to different conclusions or creating duplicative work. As the project began to tank, management kept employees less and less informed.

- Poor scope management. Consistently agreed to client requests, without properly analyzing the affect on time and schedule.

- Extremely long hours. Consistently worked 60-80 hour weeks. There was a prison-like atmosphere near the end of the project, where management refused to let employees leave, and held teams in conference rooms for strict, 11 hour shifts while taking attendance.

Advice to Senior ManagementCome up with a dedicated plan and strict processes before attempting to work on large, federal projects.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employees treated as a commodity.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at CGI Group
