Missing the work/life balance that others crow about here.

Pros

Good people. Good location. Cafeteria food is good. I have the feeling that CGI is trying to do things the right way, they just can't get their act together to do so.

Cons

If you are on the wrong project, you will not experience the work/life balance that everyone brags about and they cram down your throats in interviews. The facility is OK at best. Don't expect anything to work unless you have checked yourself. If you get frustrated by coworkers squeaking by doing nothing while you are working hard, I'd recommend against working here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend the money to give your employees the right tools to work with.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    As long as the employee tows the company line without question, the company will offer support.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good, but that depends on the contract.
    It is possible to transfer from one location to another if you want to move somewhere else.
    If contracts are canceled, they will try to find somewhere else to put you.

    Cons

    Money is their bottom line. If the contract or money is at risk, in any way, the employee gets pushed aside. I have not experienced the flexibility in schedules that other people have. This obviously depends on the contract.
    The company offers no support for employees who have suffered tragedies in their personal lives, especially if the government client also does not offer support. Whatever the clent wants, the client gets even if this hurts the employee.
    The company will not be supportive the employee wants to file a complaint against the client.
    Paid time off (pto) and sick leave are the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees better. If they need help, please be more supportive. Don't listen to gossip and take the time to learn what is truly going on at the job location before passing jusgment on anyone. Be more flexible in time off for the employees, even if the client is not.
