Told you should be flattered to have this job, but treated like you work in a sweatshop

I have been working at CGI

Pros

Looks good on a resume to be a contractor at the Library of Congress.
Good healthcare benefits from CGI
Good exposure to other languages

Cons

Constantly belittled and criticized for not knowing information you were never given.
Poor training.
Belligerent manager.
Underpaid.
Micro mis-managed
Pushed to produce statistics, but not quality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the Project manager and assistant project manager. All they care about it statistics, not the quality of the work or respect for employees.

    Pros

    CGI Federal is a flexible company that is respectful of its members' work-life balance.

    Management is very transparent with respect to its business philosophy and goals.

    Cons

    Knowledge distribution is somewhat unbalanced.

    Members who work observably harder don't seem to be compensated for it.

    CGI Federal is quite laid back most of the time (I suppose that could be a "pro" reason for some).

    There is no such thing as on-the-job training.

    There is little opportunity for growth, unless of course you work there for 25 years.

    Compensation is probably a bit under average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rely on existing work; get out there and find new opportunities.

    The transparency is appreciated--keep it up.

    The yearly events are an excellent idea, and they effectively bring the company's members together.

    Pros

    Pretty flexible in terms of working remotely (some teams more than others), nice gym, social club, flexible work schedule (core hours).

    Cons

    Poor career development, hard to progress with professional development (especially when not in the Fairfax office), lack of training opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on career development and training, especially in non-Fairfax offices. Increase knowledge of CGI professional development opportunities and growth and knowledge sharing.
