    Pros

    Relatively stress-free projects, decent bonuses, good benefits

    Cons

    Lack of innovation Lack of client interaction (most project teams based away from clients) Not a true consulting firm (selling code to clients rather than solving problems with their processes/organization) Poor raises Lack of growth opportunities for mid-level professionals Staff crammed into small cubes/spaces to fit more people Upper management generally not willing to invest in staff seeking further education/certifications

    Advice to Management

    Give staff clear paths for advancement... consider an "up or out" approach to avoid stagnation

    Great place to start a career, but no room for growth

    Pros

    - Good salaries, considering where the office is located - Great place to work directly out of college - Flexible hours - Telecommute options - Great benefits - Great work/life balance - Interesting work

    Cons

    - No chance for career growth unless you are in the Fairfax office (5+ years for promotion, even for a regular top performer) - Upper management tends to forget that the remote offices and team members exist - Raises are low (3% - 4%), even for top performers - Location of important company information changes regularly (at least 3 times in the time I have been with CGI Federal) - Remote offices don't receive the same benefits as the Fairfax office: no (or boring, half planned) events, sub-par equipment and facilities, no cafeteria, no snacks or drinks, drip coffee as opposed to single serve machines with K-Cups, etc. Many small things but they combine to make remote members feel less appreciated. - No chance to interact with clients

    Advice to Management

    Equalize how you treat members who aren't in Fairfax. Remote members have as much (and often more) experience and we are well aware of how we are second class citizens at CGI. The remote offices are not staff augmentation, we are staff.
