Current Employee - IT Consultant in Fairfax, VA

I have been working at CGI full-time (less than a year)

Pros

-great if you want to be a mindless drone
-awesome salary if you want to live in a cardboard box
-great environment for doing nothing
-internal "cult-like" promotion of the company ("one of us")

Cons

-ignorant management
-hands-off work force and administration
-insult to employees with drive for innovation and progressive work styles
-no management fast track

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find something for your employees to do rather than let them sit and do nothing for weeks on end. Companies like this will be the end of IT innovation and progress in the public sector.

    I worked at CGI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, I was satisifed with my salary, and the people were great! This is a great company to get your feet wet with a consulting firm, or a business analsyt role.

    Cons

    For me it was difficult to alway wonder where my next role would come from. It might not be a con to everyone but for me I needed more job security. Also, my manager had been with CGI for 20 years and was just a Senior Consultant, so that turned me off as far as advancement opprotunity. Let's face it, this job is a stepping stone unless you actually live in Fairfax. I would come back to CGI in the future if we win bigger and longer contracts in Atlanta. CGI Federal has very small footprint in Atlanta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more agressive when going after bids, we have lost out on some BIG deals due to the lack of flexibility in pricing.
