Pros

CGI offers a very good work-life balance, with very understanding management. Unlimited sick days and in general a good sense of team.

Cons

Commutes often split between Fairfax, VA and Washington, DC. There is a lot of tolerance for sub-standard employees which can be frustrating under tight deadlines.

Advice to Management

Probably time to revisit the mission of CGI FederaI. The current strategy of milking profit from T&M contracts is going to result in a deprecation of the company brand.

    Average consultancy with little name recognition and myopic focus on margin

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Exposure to a limited cadre of Fortune 100 Firms, support for training if you can convince management, some attempts to connect with rank and file staff but it's really treated more like a checkbox than heartfelt.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Lack of commitment to long term opportunities unless there is short term money to be made: margin is constantly under a microscope for senior staff, so if numbers don't look good in short term then cuts come quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in Business Development and getting more offshore staff Visas so there are people available instead of waiting until the last moment. The margin and stock price look good in the short term. It you are losing volume and market share against TCS, etc.
