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

    Current Employee - Consultant in Lebanon, VA

    I have been working at CGI full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Great work and life balance, but few opportunities for advancement unless you are willing to travel

    I have been working at CGI full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are work-from-home/remote work roles which saves on comuting, travel time, and allow members a better work/life balance. The stock option is a great benefit.

    Cons

    Unless you are willing to travel and aggressively seek out other roles, your career advancement can be stale.
