    Pros

    Nothing, this company destroy's BD people.

    Cons

    A Vice President from the Stanley acquisition who drove the entire effort at Department of State for a $260m Single Award IDIQ was fired moments after the submission to the Federal Government because he hadn't "sold" anything else in 18 months. His entire job was to drive this single opportunity. He did, CGI at the last minute had to make the flip to a sub role because of this VP's knowledge of the opportunity. CGI STILL WON the opportunity but the VP was fired just after the submission to the government. How poorly short-sighted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to really learn what BD is all about. You don't have a clue.

    Doesn't Recommend
